Working for time is a co-operation for mutual benefit:
The model puts in her (his) time, resources and effort and the photographer does the same.
No money changes hands. Both, the model and the photographer cover their own expenses and benefit from each other’s skills and talents.
The model’s fee consists of photographic images.
Typically, the photographs are supplied as digital files, either on CD (time for CD or TFCD), for download from the photographer’s website (TFDL, time for download) or, rarely nowadays, as prints (PFT or prints for time, sometimes also called TFP time for prints).
This is a really good way for models to build a portfolio and of course for me to get new models for photographic shoots.
Themed shoots can be fun also, so any costumery or outfits you have, for say Vintage shoots or fantasy themed shoots, bring them along plus your own ideas are always welcomed.
Two images from my small collection at RedEdge Images
RedEdge Images now represent a new collection of my images for creative stock specifically for book covers.
I have now submitted images and been accepted as a contributor at RedEdge Images
My as yet small collection can be seen at this url
Red Edge images is a boutique image library which evolved from The Gailans Collection to supply high quality images to publishers worldwide, mainly for fiction book covers.
I am looking forward to working with RedEdge images in the future and building a good and saleable collection of book cover images.
“At Red Edge, we don’t like ‘stock photography’. What we like is original photography with a commissioned feel to most of the images. We love atmospheric, evocative, eye-catching, creative photography. But that should come as no surprise since both the partners are photographers with many years experience of photography for publishing and advertising.”
