I've noticed a spike in togs requesting the model work to nude level for no payment.
What are your opinions?
Personally, I reckon those who demand more cash for revealing more flesh both make nudity seem 'naughty' and cheapen the modelling scene... but that's possibly another story.
You seem to of answered your own question, and regardless of the shoot levels if a model decides to do it for free to gain either experience in a particular genre or just for the images, yes it is down to their discretion. Along with the fact that there are several models who will only shoot TF with chosen photographers yet not with others which is usually down to them either wanting to work with that particular photographer or they already have a good rapport. I personally have turned away models wanting to do TF even nude/adult styles yet some I've done several shoots with as we know we'll get good images both of us can use,so it does swing both ways. And as mentioned earlier in this post some only do certain levels for the money, it has nothing to do with them wanting to produce creative images which can be likened to the photographers who offer extra cash for higher levels, and in both situations like that it can show in the resulting images. And there is a slight misconception of the term 'free', especially when it is your profession, as they say time is money and apart from probably spending anything up to a day shooting you then have too factor in the editing time. I'd like to add this to the mix as well, I have seen several models stating they are after certain images they'd like shot for their ports and are asking to be paid for doing them, so isn't that the same as you have pointed out? Plus what they seem to forget if it is a paid shoot they aren't entitled to any of the images.Kimmikitschthat is completely at the discretion of the model as to whether they choose to even provide their services for free at all
What Bob and a few others have said. I still have to find out why and how people believe there's such a thing as a free shoot. Nothing on this earth is free.
