Here in Singapore, seems like the photographer is expected to take on all the cost of such a shoot.
There are photographers who pay to shoot 'models'. And there are 'models' who would not mind paying the photographer to shoot her (or at the very least to cover the necessary expenditures).
So as a photographer, pro or no pro, anyone is free to decide which side of the see-saw he wishes to position himself.
My SOP answer to a model asking for free portfolio shoot is...Wait Long Long.
too many photographers.... too few models???
