Defining TFP for Models and Photographers

Throughout the photography and modeling industry, creative people connect and collaborate to produce works that enable the collective group to do the impossible and the improbable with their collective talents.

This collaboration is often called TFP (also known as Time for Prints, Trade for Prints, Time for Pictures, Test for Prints, or simply, Trade.) In essence, it is the free exchange of creative skills and resources to produce art without any direct compensation. By pooling resources, the cost of production is shared and the final works are shared with the collective.

In practice, most photographers don’t actually share any physical prints. Instead, models, makeup artists, stylists, retouch artists, etc received digital copies of the files that can be used in their portfolio or social media. It is important to understand that the photographer retains the sole ownership of the copyright and reproductive rights to any of the images created.

Innovation & Inspiration Combined

TFP Model Collaborations

My approach to TFP is straight-forward. I shoot a maximum of two TFP shoots each month. The creative is based on themes or visual narratives that I develop. The themes could be fashion/style-based or a unique visual aesthetic. By unique, I mean–shooting subjects/styles that are not prominent in my current portfolio or product offerings. 

Creative collaboration is super critical. I’m always looking for fashion designers, wardrobe stylist, hair/makeup-artists, bodypaint artists, and set designers to produce new and remarkable work. These projects are collaborative from start to finish to produce work that all parties find creative value. This truly is a team effort to make our collective best showcase.

Bold and Daring Creative Images

The Light & Alchemy Bureau (or LAB) is world-class in its production capacity and technique. Each stage of the shoot is meticulously crafted to ensure that the final prints are nothing short of amazing.

If you’re weary of mundane and flat looks, I am too. My art is built on authentic and vibrant moments. As my #MadeGrandTFP shoots engage more experimental experiences, you’ll have an opportunity to learn and push your own creative limits.
