TFT/TFP Photoshoots

If you are new to modelling, Time For Trade (TFT)/Time for Print(TFP) photoshoots are standard practice within the modelling industry. These shoots are ideal for newcomers to modelling as the model gets to build a portfolio of work while gaining valuable experience on the job and both model & photographer mutually benefit.

In lieu of payment the model is compensated with photos of an equal value which they can use under specific conditions e.g. self-promotional use but not for publication, resale or financial gain. 

Photoshoots at events also fall under the TFT/TFP rules as under the Terms & Conditions of most events, the organisers prohibit photographers charging for services to those attending the event.

Depending on the nature of the work I may occasionally take on projects that I am interested in and are of benefit to my portfolio on this basis. If you are interested in working with me or have a project you think I would be interested in please contact me to discuss.
