Ive been asked to do some acadamy shoots.. for afew acadamies but its 50pound which will then be refunded when you turn up... free shoot, advice, hair, makeup stylist etc and then if you pass they give you model advice and put you in contact with agencies but if you want to buy any of your images for portfolio theyre 50pound eacch...
do you think these kinds of things are worth it? I'm new to this and any advice would be good as for now im thinking its not really worth it as can get shoots for TFP anyway i dont want to be spending 50pound but on the otherhand it is with guarenteed professionals and seems like a good opportunity ?!
This is just a variation of the oldest scam in the business. You would do better paying a good local photographer £100 fro a number of prints or trying TF/P. There are dozens of very good photographers in London.
Thanks! I've got uni exams at the moment and not focusing on shoots till after the 18th when they finish can get back to you then i am deff going to do some TFP etc kind of shoot.. just exploring options at the moment thanks for advice everyone xx
You'll get all sorts of opinions about whether you should pay a good photographer or do TF.
One thing is for sure, you will get a lot of TF offers, just be very selective about who you choose to work with if you do go down that route.
Meanwhile, best get on with that exam revision
