    look into this forum
    Services Offered / Wanted
    a lot of photographers are looking for MUA to provide service for TFCD (time for CD) shoot for the models. I believe you can provide your MUA service to the shoot and ask for a CD of photos as your portfolio in return of your service. Probably you can join in the shoot as well.

    You mail box may be flooded soon, as free MUA in return for portfolio is in demand.

    You can be all at the same time, or you can be either one at a time.

    There will be tonnes of photographers here wanting to do a free shoot, but good model dun come easy, so if you have the ability to make a normal girl look gorgeous, then its already your skills.

    If you can come up with an interesting theme, on a sunday morning, i dun mind helping u... besides that, can take a before & after...

    From to time I'll do 1 to 1 TFCD for some models in my studio. If you're interested, let me know how I can get in touch with you. If you want it for your portfolio, you may also want to have some control over the make up.

    like wise, what if my photography skills not good enuff? can the model & MUA blame me?

    its a TFCD, and art & perception is very subjective, some like it, some hate it... i am more of those who go for the fun of it... but i still try to deliver...

    on the 2nd part, u mean not chinese then cannot be tfcd MUA?

    Thanks, there are quite some non-chinese photographer in ClubSNAP also. Weekend are more suitable for most forumers here as most got day job.

    Beside the end result (photos), everyone one improve through the process of TFCD, by the time you are really good and with portfolios, you probably start charging already.
