A QUICK NOTE ABOUT TFP - I DON'T DO IT
A QUICK NOTE ABOUT TFCD - I DON'T DO IT WITH ONE EXCEPTION:
I do TFCD for my fine art work which could include some form of nudity or implied nudity. I accept creative input but this is my shoot run by me. You would get web sized only copies of what I edit. If you want prints, you can buy them from me at a discount. If we work well together and can develop that creative energy of a muse and her artist, then I will do tfcd shoots of what you want also but this would be a working relationship of mutual benefits (photographically speaking).
I do not pay models for my artistic work for my portfolio or galleries. The only time I pay models if I need one for one of my clients that requires a model and then I get the money back from my client. If that's the case, I will find you. If you want to let me know your available, please let me know if it's for one of my TFCD projects or if you only desire to be in the running for one of my paid client shoots. I don't mean to sound harsh but I get a lot of requests to do a shoot and then when I contact them I'm told only if they are paid. Waste of my time and yours. I'm very at ease with the models I work with but I'm also very professional. I expect the same from my models.
