If your focus is portrait photography, then you’ve definitely ended up at some point with no-one to photograph. No matter whether you’ve envisioned a project and need to find the right model, or you just want to photograph someone interesting, TFP will be a helpful way to work together.
TFP is something you should learn about, even if just for the fact that many professional photographers and models are less than thrilled about the TFP trend. TFP (Time for Prints) is a form of transaction in the photography business world where neither side charges the other side money. The model gives the photographer their time, and the photographer gives the model presentation photographs.
