Former Professional (English-Born) photographer, now living in semi-retirement in Iserlohn, NRW, Germany.
My modelling-photography is conducted on a strictly hobbyist-basis for my personal enjoyment and with no commercial outlet.
As I prefer to work with models who have a more than passing interest in my style of working and so for that reason, model-shoots for personal use will be conducted on a TFP-or Part-Pay basis. I do not provide images from pay shoots at the model's full rate.

Models: I hope you will read my references and check them by messaging the models I have worked with. You should do this with every photographer you work with...
Also... If you put ENGLISH as one of your language options, it would be helpful if you can actually speak it - even if only a little... :-)
I DO NOT usually permit Escorts in my studio or on location shoots.
If the model has a driver or has safety concerns, they are welcome to bring someone to meet me but they must then wait in their car or at a nearby coffee shop until the shoot is finished.
No-one is allowed in the shooting-area who is not directly involved as part of the creative effort, such as a Stylist, MUA/Visa etc.
If using a Mietstudio, it is probable that there are guest facilities where people can relax away from the shooting area, in which case the above need not apply.
Finally - a note on Watermarks:
All of my work is watermarked apart from older images comissioned by clients.
Unfortunately in this day and age of everyone thinking everything they see on the internet is 'free' for them to download and use for their own purposes, watermarking images is the only way photographers can assert ownership in the event we catch someone stealing images. Otherwise they can claim they did not know who the image belonged to and that it was an Orphan Work. By removing or altering the watermark they demonstrate that they not only knew but have attempted to circumvent worldwide Intellectual Property Rights.
Small watermarks may be aesthetically more pleasing but they are easier to remove.
All images supplied as part of a TFP arrangement will be watermarked accordingly.
Images supplied to paying clients will not be watermarked - so if you want unwatermarked images - you must pay me.
While I recommend most of the models I have worked with - all can be found either in my Network List or by looking at the Photo-Credits next to the images in my SC - some models I do not recommend for various reasons - they may have 'flaked', cancelled for no good reason at short notice, been late or unprepared for the shooting.
For more info on a particular Model, PN me for details.

All shoots must be accompanied by a signed Model Release and Usage Agreement provided by me. These documents will be in English as I work in several EU Countries.
Non-Commercial usage will be only permitted on a TFP- Shootings.
T&Cs for all shoots are covered by my Model Release & Usage Agreement forms, which will be made available for examination prior to any shoot.
No Release Form = No shoot.
TFP - watermarked copies of ALL suitable images that are retouched will be supplied within 2 weeks.
Part-Pay - watermarked copies of all images that are retouched will be supplied as proofs from which you may choose a number of copies, to be determined according to the amount of discount offered.
If my style does not warrant a TFP or Part-Pay shooting, then my Budget for Pay-Shootings is nominally £40/ph, although there is some room for negotiation depending on levels and modelling experience - however in this case, no images will be supplied.
Full Release authority will apply to images from Pay- and Part-Pay Shoots
