I see no reason why not if you are comfortable with the idea. Seems you may be missing an opportunity to earn a few dollars. In the UK, Asian models are a bit of a rareity and that has value. Don't know about your part of the world.

Perfectly okay if, as you seem to be from your portfolio, you are happy to just shoot run-of-the mill naked images.

However, if looking to produce better portfolio images possibly you should consider paying a good local photographer who specialises in more artistic nude work.

If you are fine with this then it's perfectly ok.

No different to non-nude TFs really.

For all TFs, be as sure as you can be that the photographer has a proven track record for reliability and quality before confirming a booking. Also, make sure that you have a documented agreement which sets out all your expectations, including timescales for delivery of retouched images. If you have any restrictions on how the photographer may use the images then make sure they're in the agreement too.

Course it's ok. Entirely up to you.

If you are getting someothing from it (Money, images, Enjoyment, Satisfaction, whatever...) then good for you.

Some oeople shoot just for money. A lot of people shoot 'just for fun'.

I like to do both if I can,

"ok" is totally up to you, no one else's business.  

personally i only shoot tfp, and i shoot nudes too, mainly male models.

i only do this as an artistic outlet for myself and the model, so don't expect to pay
and done expect the model to pay either.  

the moment a model says to me "its worth £40 an hour", i respectfully tell them
i cannot afford that (i really can't) and move on to someone with a different outlook.

so,  at the end of the day,  we only "pair up" as model and photographer with
people that see eye to eye.   

i have no problems with models charging,  but i am not a photographer that
will be paying.     if you refuse to do a collaboration shoot you may end up
regretting losing some really good photographs because not all good photographers
are professionals  (professional meaning that they earn their living from photography)
ive seen some awesome shots taken by amateurs,  far nicer than one that cost the
model 100's with a professional.   

my own nude photographs are sometimes "restricted" i.e. i've produced a nude
shot and have agreed not to use it on portfolios etc.   in which case i'm happy
and the model is the only one who has the choice to release it.    ive agreed that if
they release a nude,  i can release it also on my portfolio.   other agreements have been
that i get the "ok" from the model to release a particular shot after i've edited it. 
the last case is usually when the model is a little worried about having themselves
seen as a nude  i.e. their private parts being on show.       all these options are ok to me,
its just what both parties feel comfortable with.   

so, in summary,  it isn't up to anyone to tell you what to do.
and the real answer is  yes and no and depends.

enjoy your modelling !!!

this is a suject that wins me up a bit, 

tfp is dead simple it is a shoot where both the photographer and model shoot for time becasue both feel they need the shot for their folio etc, 

it dosnt matter if its fashion, nude, adult or a shot of the model holding a trombone and an asparagus, if you need the shot or the experiece shoot it TF if you dont turn it down or charge
