One of the most posted and viewed gallery in clubsnap here is the potraits and poses one. I've seen that many of you guys have participated in TFCDs (what it means i'm still not sure) and model shoots. Usually, these sessions would consist of some payment for the models maybe the venue and equipment.
However, i don't really understand why you would consistently go for these sessions if the photographs taken would not be really used for anything. You may argue then what's the use for example, all the landscape photographs i've taken..but then again i didn't have to pay for them.
I would understand if you want to develop some sort of portfolio for a possible career in this line of photography.. but for those who really aren't, why would you spend so much money for these kind of shoots. Some of you may say you want to try it out, but going for a second, third...tenth time?
In no way am I against these type of sessions, but i don't quite understand what motives you guys have (other than seeing girls in bikinis for half a day).
