that is the crux of the problem here. a lot of PGers are under the impression that the moment they engage a model for a TF, it means to say that they is no payment involved. Yes, not in money terms. But something that is highly intangible is the payment for a TF and that is a value-added portfolio for both parties.
When a model ask to see the port it is their right to do so. It serves two purposes: 1) whether she can fit your style and 2) if there can be other areas worth noting. It just takes one bad pic to ruin everything she may have built up before.
That said, in a TF, how many PGers actually make an efforet to do the PP for the model? I do not know and do not want to comment. I guess that is a question that only the PGers know. As PGers and models, the working relationship should be close knit. One should not undermine the other. No point model and PGer slam one another. What sense does it make?
And don't be too fussy/choosy/selective also.
Models with better attributes naturally will receive more offers for collaboration or TFCD request. And surely they'll want to pick what they perceive as the "best investment". If the PG have nothing to show and yet have high expectations.. There is little probability that anything will work out.

Opinions are like A-holes. Everyone's got one.
1. Pick the best guy which comes along.
2. Same as (2), but perhaps with more reasonable expectations.
3. More stringent about picking the models to work with else it will be a waste of time.
4. Find models with lesser expectations as well as try to brush up your own skill level.
sometimes when people ask for prosumer versus dslr, got another sort of gang arguing whether it's the camera or the lens.
So if a guy can offer them free photos, why not, it is free, to them, it better than going to those crap studio to have those make-over shots......
To them, free photo = free passport to ask for paid shoot....and only TFCD for special theme.......
Same as the obsession with animals
Guess the root of problem is.. it's not "a" guy, but an "army" in most cases
That's why there is so much discussion.. the commandos will secure the initial strikes, and the infantry will be left with nothing to shoot.. so they feedback that the target doesn't gives them a chance..
that's how rather post the animal photos also will not kena complaint by the "models"
beside, the "models" willing to work for food, not so demanding too.
