    Smile Checking around for photograhers..

    Hei guys & gals,

    I am helping a friend to look for photograhers who are willing to contruibute free to shoot some models in exchange to build portfolio for all parties. Will not be so soon for the shoots but just wish to check out the photograhers to find the right ones.

    The shoots will be very strong model shoots rather than the usual course ones (casual). At the same time, I would need to see the portfolio of the photograhers.

    Below are 2 examples of what shoots we are looking for, both pictures are the same model. *she is not the model you will be shooting, this is just an example of the type of shoots we are looking for*

    Thanks with regards,
    K220

    Maybe you will wanna let the photographers know the makeup artist cost is to be beared by the photographers or the agency?

    If you are going to have different feels to the models as what you have shown, that means that will be change in makeup and hair styling.

    And in the end, will photo credits be given to various parties say the photographs are beings used for comp card?

    agree.

    if got good portfolios, photogs dun need these type of 'free model shoot'.

    those who need to do free shoots only because they need to build portfolio.

    why not let photogs see models' portfolio also.......

    Woah, I can see another war emerging, though I wouldn't want to be the one starting it.

    K220, if you want photogs to do free portfolio shoots for models, then I think you should not select. Just ask who's interested in a free portfolio shoot and let them come and shoot. You then pick the best out of the best.

    Of course, if you want it to be nicely and professionally done, then I think need to come up with some $ lah. Good stuff don't come free IMHO. I'm not implying that free stuff are not nice and professional, but professional stuff definitely involves a cost.

    Hope you don't mind my very frank opinion.

    Hi
    I don't mind doing it but want more info first ie: is there any cost we need to cover, what will it be used for, when is the shoot, where is the shoot, copyrights....etc. The photos you have shown look simple enough and can be done in my studio.

    Wow, you own a studio and will still do model shoots for free!? You still need shots for your portfolio?

    This just seems like another case of "You can come and shoot a beautiful girl for free and we get all the model portfolios done for free". It's not a fair deal in my opinion. What about time/costs/wear&tear??

    Hi Virgo,
    If K220 cannot choose photographers because it is free, what if someone inexperience in model shoot and join in, donít you think is a waste of time for K220 and the models?

    Perhaps K220 should rephrase the question: Is there any professional willing to do TFP/TFCD for the models or not?

    Portfolio needs to update very frequently, whether you are professional model or photographers, this is the tool help us to make a living. We donít use paid client as guinea pig, only try out new idea or experiment new tools or technique on test shoot like this.

    The 'catchlight' here is free. As espn has highlighted: 'free also must see portfolio'?

    The rephrase should be: Is there any professional willing to do TFP/TFCD for the models for FREE?

    OK. This is fair enough. For this case, I have a question. How about copyrights? Should this be the photographer's or model's? Or both? I would presume the latter. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Both parties agree on the copyrights issue before shoot commence, remember nobody can force you to do anything that you donít like or donít feel right.
