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.

I have never failed But i have discovered thousands of approches which don't work.

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

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
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

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.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

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!"
