Photographer to Models Tips 10: Paying a Photographer vs. Trading (TF) w/ a Photographer... Does it matter to you as a Model?

For model portfolio shoots... Does it matter? Yes, BIG Time!

It really depends on what you want from the photographer, your goals as a model, and time frame you want those photos from the project you're trying to complete. For example, if you want a very specific look, concept, and time frame you want that in your portfolio as a model that can happen and you have two options: Pay a Photographer or get it on TF.

These tips are very common sense but I have to say it to ensure you don't forget as "most models" would easily forget a lot of things without a constant reminder like myself or a manager would be doing but in the freelance world of modeling there is rarely a manager around. Note this is only a guideline (for TF work, required for model I'm paying) of tips of prepping yourself as the model and shooting for me, not required, this is to ensure the best possible photos are taken and to reduce as much as possible post production time.
