ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A TFP PHOTO SHOOTING WITH ME? – GET MORE OF AN INSIGHT ON HOW I WORK TFP.

I am a huge fan of TFP photo shoots, as you get the possibility to work on super creative, enriching and refreshing photo shoots with amazing, motivated and outgoing people, who all have to goal to achieve THE perfect photo with new perspectives, lots of inspiration and euphoria to expand their personal portfolio. Here are just a few facts, on how I work TFP and what are my personal requirements and approaches when it comes to a TFP cooperation:

DO I AND WHEN WILL I WORK TFP PHOTO SHOOTINGS?

Yes, I do TFP photo shoots, but only with interest to expand my personal portfolio. If you ask for a TFP photo shoot, it is always good to tell me what you’re going for, what theme and what images you have in mind for me as a model. Even though I might not do any TFP shoots at a specific time, it may be that I find the topic totally interesting or Your art of photography might be missing in my portfolio. Do not hesitate and take the chance and ask if I am interested on a certain TFP shoot. I am more and more heading towards editorial and fashion photoshootings – so it is more likely I will say yes to a professional editorial and fashion photographer.

WHAT ABOUT THE TIME AND COSTS?

A TFP photo shoot is most of the time very time consuming for either parties and/or holds rather high travel costs (depending on where you are from), which I won’t be able and am not willing to pay all by myself. If travel, board an lodge are taken care of by the photographer, it is more likely that I will agree to a TFP photo shoot if my time and interest allows it. A TFP photoshoot should be in interest of both parties, though. I’ve had great cooperations with amazing photographers in the past and there was always found the right solution concerning the costs for every project by itself, as the cooperation was really wanted to be achieved from both parties. Noone has to feel disadvantaged, as there will only be unnecessary, disquieting and bad atmosphere and moments – and this makes no sense at a TFP photo shoot.

WHY AM I WORKING WITH A TFP CONTRACT?

Even though a TFP shoot is a photo shoot agreed from both parties to be only for portfolio expanding reasons, there might be the possibility of subsequent sell of one or more pictures. In this case a TFP contract does not primarily regulate how much money each party would get out of a possible commercial job, but simply assures that the laws of rights are equally set straight of the results of the particular photo shooting – and therefore that a tfp photo shooting is not of any commercial use. Anyhow, it does note that in case of the possibility of a commercial use the appropriate fees will be determined in a separate contract by the model and the photographer. In my tfp contract any requirements and perceptions will be cleared out, as I personally find clarification and detailed guidelines very important to avoid any kind of discrepancies, misunderstandings and disagreements beforehand any photo shooting – in order to give both parties the space and the calm mindset to work at their best. Concerning tfp contracts, there are many different views on this topic, which I of course respect if you think differently than me – so I kindly ask you to also respect my personal point of view and working routine by always using a tfp contract. For me personally, a tfp contract is a clear sign of quality, professionalism and mutual respect of each others work and art. Thank you for your understanding.

WHAT IF WE BOTH HAVE A SEPARATE CONTRACT?

If we both work with a contract, it is even better. We will be able to understand each others views more easily if they may vary a bit – on the about to happen photo shoot. Either we have the same opinion, terms and conditions and there will be two contracts that will be agreed on and signed, or we will work out one contract together that fits both of our needs and perceptions. Either way, we will make it work.

WHAT KIND OF PHOTO SHOOTINGS DO NOT FALL INTO TFP PHOTO SHOOTINGS FOR ME?

Photo shoots with the purpose of an increase of profit, just as modeling for clothes or any kind of product which will/can be sold, will always be charged with the minimum of my hourly modeling fee or an agreed on flat fee. In case of calling a TFP photo shoot with the purpose to do a TFP product photo shoot, which is explicitly a NON-TFP-photo shoot for me, all expenses incurred will be charged as well as my hourly fee that was already taking use of. According to the Austrian law § 870 (fraud / purpose of deception) will become effective.

WHAT ABOUT THE MAKE UP AT TFP PHOTO SHOOTINGS?

I am able to do my own make up as I know my face best – and I love to do my Make Up myself, if you want All of Me in front of your camera – but please note that I am NOT a trained visagiste and/or make-up artist. For any theme based photoshoots apart from my possible make-up routine and my doable make-up, I would highly recommend to work with a professional visagiste or make-up artist on a TFP base as well.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST …

Please do not be intimidated under any circumstances by all the rules, requirements and approaches listed above – in my view, there need to be rules in case to do an outstanding job.
