I think saying there is a lot of TF around is irrelevant to your question as one assumes people are shooting it because it is of benefit, otherwise why do it, its not going to buy the weekly groceries.

There is very little paid work for non adult levels is true though.

Photographers are paying for a reason - either because that is the only way to get the shoot or because they have something specific in mind and need a model to fit that or because they want to book someone who will model for them rather than want to collaborate.

People of all abilities are paying for models, just not many of them. The ones who are reasonably proficient dont need to compromise - they can find models easily who fit their criteria
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

I had a casting up last week for a studio shoot at Riverside Studio Maidstone - no levels specified, no age specified. I ended up shooting a fashion model.

I think there's still paid topless work around, but you're right there's a lot of people looking to shoot TF. It could be the economy or an influx of new photographers looking to build their portfolios.

I see you have a casting up at the moment offering a pretty good rate working to nude - I hope its proving worthwhile.

The amateur modelling market used to be predominately financed by middle-aged photographers with plenty of spare cash willing to throw money at every girl willing to show some flesh. That money kept the whole place afloat and even ensured there was a reasonable turnover of new faces for the pro adult shooters that operate here. That money has now all but disappeared leaving mainly enthusiast photographers and models who are quite happy to work together without the need for cash to change hands.

There is a small market for regular nude modelling where the models' rates are sufficiently low that the enthusiast photographer will consider them an attractive alternative to what might be regarded as comparatively onerous TF arrangements.

Otherwise that leaves adult/fetish/erotic - but even that's a fast disappearing market due to lack of money but also due to a lack of decent models willing to model at those levels.

Amateur modelling is pretty much dead in the water so far as being paid is concerned. There are a handful of popular models who, between them, pick up most of the paid work that is left. If you're not known/popular/good then it's pretty difficult getting decent amounts of paid work these days, even if you offer adult.
