So, you good photographers, imagine next:
There is campaign, you are chosen photographer, and you have to do with model. Now, model in your country asks for 1000 EURO per day for posing.
So, one day you come for example in my country and you see next: Cup of coffe here is 0,5 Euro and in your country is 3 EURO. Lunch in "normal" restaurant is 5 EURO and in your country is 50 EURO. And here is much cheaper clothing, public transpotation, apartement prices, and everything.
So you say "great instead of paying 1000 EURO per day for model in Bosnia I will pay is 50 EURO per day." Of course model here dream to get same price for hers/his work as in your country, we dream to have standard of life like in "developed western European" countries, but for now that is that. Ok, maybe model can beg for little more, maybe 100 or 200 euro per day, but nowere close you will be ready to pay model in your country...
So, you come here and you do you make you job. You rent model same "quality" as in your country, which do same job as model in your country would do, and you get same results. Only you pay model here for fraction of price you would pay in your country.
Now, you go to client who ordered campaign and they pay you previously agreed amount of money for your job. Of course when you calculate your price for job you calculate that you will pay your model 1000 EURO per day, not 50 EURO per day. But you didn't tell to client you didn't use model in your coutry, but use model in my country which you payed 50 EURO for model instead 1000 EURO.
Is that ethical?
If you think it is, you don't have any rights to tell anybody anything regarding ethic.
