TFP Shoots!

First, don't be afraid to ask. I do not bite. I try to be as specific as possible in my portfolio to avoid constantly repeating myself and having to deal with less than professional people.

Okay So I felt the need to type this up here due to a few problems I've had with collaborations not going as planned.

What is TFP?
Time for print/photos

It means that two or more people are coming together to create photos and the payment is the photos to use for whatever the agreed upon use is.

I have a pretty developed portfolio after over 2 years of modeling. I am not looking to add any more.Only to enhance and upgrade my portfolio. It has to be something new and exciting that I have never done before to capture my attention.

Why do I shoot TF?

1.)At this point I shoot TF with the intention of shooting with like minded creative individuals who I believe will enhance my portfolio.

2.) My look changes constantly and I like to have photos the represent my current look so there are any suprises when I show up to a shoot.

3.) I shoot TF with creative people who also like me have the goals of being published in alternative magazines and having high quality work to put out there for the world to see.

4.) Creative Muse: I don't mind working and collaborating with like minded creative individuals who have projects in mind that they believe are suited for me if I am interested in it. But it has be something that I feel is beneficial to me on some level either creative, career wise, fun, intellectual, charity, or something really mind blowing that I do not wish to miss out on.

Things I will NOT do Rather it's TF of PAID!
1.) Erotics, do play dumb and act like you don't know the difference between art and porn. You may see a creative side to this, but I am not interested. Offering me more money will not make me budge on this.

2.) Commercial photography work, my profile clearly states that I am an alternative model and that I am interested in alternative shoots. Most of the request I receive for this line of work are tf and have no benefit to me or my portfolio what so ever.

3.) Fetish work, I am not into foot fetish shoots. A lot of people would like to have you believe that it's just some guy hiring you to take pictures of your feet. But what I have found by reading the fine print is quite disturbing. They require me to be okay with being touched, having my toes sucked or licked, ticking, jacking some guy off with my feet, letting guys cum on my feet, and even footsie creeps me out. I'm sorry I am not interested in this line of work even it is just guys taking pictures of my feet it has no benefit to my portfolio or place in my career thanks for understanding.

4.) Video Vixens, I am not interested in shaking my ass in some guys rap video. Which is what I find most of those request to be. Sorry you are barking up the wrong tree.

 #3 Over the past year, I've been shooting tf with people clearly stating before working together that I'm interested in submitting to alternative magazines and that is the only main reason why I agree to shoot with them. But I have not been able to submit a single thing.

1.) I don't get pictures back from a shoot.

2.) The pictures I do get aren't good enough.

3.) I submit to magazines and get approved and I let the photographers know that I submitted and send them the guidelines for submissions and crickets. I haven't heard back from either one of them.


1.) If you are looking to collaborate with me and it only benefits your project but does nothing for my portfolio. I have Rates they are reasonable.

2.) If you would like to shoot tf with me you must agree that to shoot a concept both of us can use and after submissions (if we decide to submit to any) fill out the photographers side of the applications so that our work can be published in the following issue. If I have worked with you TF before, and I've submitted to magazines yet never heard back from you I will never shoot TF with you Again!

3.) I do not shoot tf nudes, lingerie, or bikini work and very selective of projects that I do choose.

4.) You cannot try to control the shoot and have a my way or the highway kind of attitude. I will end the shoot early and never work with you again.

5.) You should be fully aware that I am an alternative model and I am interested in shooting in mostly alternative fashions. "Traditional" styled shoots aren't really for me. I'm not generally interested. Its ones of those things that I am fully capable of doing, but wouldn't benefit me in any way.  Again I have rates! They are reasonable just ask or make me an offer even better.

Basically I'm only interested in shooting tf if its an alternative, dark, horror, gore,....etc. concept that I can use for magazine submissions and if you are fine with all of the agreements most magazine require after approving submissions. These are most magazine requirements not mine.

I am genuinely interested in shooting with creative like minded individuals.  "Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable" -unknown. I am looking to collaborate with people capable of creating art that shocks, captivates, scares, disturbs, and just pushes the button and goes outside of the box.

1.) Unmarked photos Watermarks looks like they copied them right off the internet without permission even if they do have permission it's still highly unprofessional.

2.) Unpublished photos, I know after shoots we both get excited to share them with the world and your intial reaction is to post them on all of your social media sites and such, but they are much more valuable after waiting until after they are published then sharing the tearsheets.

3.) Large Hi Res images that are at least 300 DPI or bigger. Please let me know in advanced if you do not know how to enlarge images to fit into these standards.

4.) Credits and permission from everyone involved via email mostly. They may ask you to send them an email okaying the use of the images. Send you and email asking if it's okay. Or ask you to print, sign, and scan the release to send it back to them. This includes models, photographers, designers, makeup artist, stylist, and anyone else involved in the creation of the photos.

5.) If we agree to shoot to submit to a magazine, please be willing to commit to it before and after the shoot. And if you have any questions, concerns, or issues please let me know in advance before agreeing to shoot together to save both of us time.

I have clothes that are unphotographed and different looks that I would like to experiment with along with makeup ideas and hair styles I'd like to portray. I have list on my model mayhem account and I tend to post a lot here too. If you are curious about them just ask and we can collaborate together. Thanks

I am willing to work tf for runway, shoots for websites, and promotional work as well.

I have rates they are reasonable. I am a figure model, I work at various art schools all over the city. I can hold poses anywhere from 10 seconds to 1hr depending on the pose, posture, standing, sitting, etc and with breaks of course.

I am willing to shoot tf if it's to promote or benefit some sort of charity.
