As a professional, I have a busy life and I am working all the time.  If you want me to work with you paying or not, you need to contact me in advanced, with no less than 3 weeks before the date of the job. 
I will work for TFP if the model, the photographer and the idea of the shoot are appealing and super interesting.  Thanks!
