LOL yes

the expression "You get what you pay for" pops into my mind.

Then they say modeling is their full time job so they dont work for TF

unless its for themselves, it does always come across one sided ..

A TF should be a joint venture ie for the purpose of learning not comercial gain.

Yeh, **** models with their 'I would like to benefit from a shoot' mentality, who do they think they are?

Not really. I don't meet the criteria but if did I would do the young lady's pictures and then tag on something I wanted to do. It would be a win-win then.

I can't see the problem,the model has laid her cards on the table,that's what she want's from the shoot.Likewise the photographer tells her what he wants from the shoot.If there is an agreement then the shoot takes place

Is it just me, or is a casting with the terms 

1) Hi, I'm looking for a tog that takes incredible photos so I can use them for an agency

2) if anyone can help me out would be great

3) seem a little me me me sod the photographer kinda thing ?


Let me break it down for you as you have decided to pick holes in someones casting when they are free to ask for what they want:

1) What is wrong with asking for someone who takes incredible pictures - the only people who could be offended are those that don't take incredible pictures

2) If anyone can help me out doesn't sound like a demand to me - people are free to apply if they are interested or move on if they are not

3) The casting was for TFP, which means she is willing to trade time for images - she does not specify how much time or what type of images. I would have thought that a photographer who did meet the image quality criteria could make a proposal - perhaps they want to shoot something mutually agreeable, perhaps they shoot 2 hrs what the model wants and 2 hrs what the photographer wants or maybe someone with little talent applies and that is the best offer she has had and she then has to decide whether to accept or recast

Presumably what the op is saying is that models must 'pay their dues' by working tf with photographers who are no good.
And that he would rather she just posted a casting saying ' interested in shooting - get in touch'

Then lots of people can reply to casting and get rejected.
That isn't how the system is supposed to work.

Posting comments here about castings which people can read and judge for themselves is just extremely bad manners.
On the basis of the current replies it seems you are indeed in the minority with your outrage - fortunately.

Yes fancy a model wanting something from a shoot.......  good to see 2014 going the same way as 2013  "take cheap shots at any model who dares!"

But don't you think the photographer should get more than just "time"? If they want a service, like portfolio building, shouldn't they pay for the effort of the photographer? "Time" doesn't pay for bills, though if it's understanding if the photographer was a multi-millionaire/billionaire, then I suppose they could offer the time

Would anyone care to identify themselves as an incredible photographer? I could venture a few suggestions, but I wonder if anyone would actually claim this expertise personally. We could then all check out your port!
