TFP model for maternity fashion shoot
Would like a female model to do a maternity clothes shoot on a time-for-print basis. This is to launch a new line of maternity clothes.
No, you don't have to be pregnant, but you need a "pan-Asian" look.
Please PM if interested, and we can work something out.

This shoot is to launch a line of maternity clothes, as such it is a commercial shoot. Personally I'll pay the model even if it means a token sum. When someone make money from something, they should pay those who help them make money. This is also to protact the client and photographer as even if $1/- is paid, it is considered payment recived for a job done as long as they sign on the dotted line.

In the end, they did a reshoot with a paid model. All the materials that were done with the 'model'/friend were thrown away.
This reply is not to put any model down. For the record, I've worked with models who are willing to be paid a token sum so long as they get some prints from the shoot and I thank them for it. These are models whom I'll consider first when a full paying job comes along.
Just be careful about these things. Shooting for fun/hobby/interest is diff. when there is commercial interest attached to it.
