"TFD" Photo Shoot: Couples


What is “Time For Digitals”?

Time for digitals (TFD) is a term many photography communities use to describe an arrangement between a model and a photographer whereby the photographer agrees to provide the model with a certain number of digital pictures of selected photographs from the session, and a release or license to use those pictures in return for the model’s time.

The word ‘Time’ refers a person’s time spent during the photo shoot. The Word “Digital” refers to a photo that can be downloaded to the model's computer. Both, photographer and the model get together and exchange their ‘time’, for free, and each receives the digital high resolution photos for their own usage.
There are benefits to both parties of such an arrangement. The model, you, can build a portfolio of photographs to show to prospective clients at little or no cost, while I, the photographer, gets a model for a particular project or their portfolio for free.

Is the "TFD" Photo Shoot really for free?

Yes! It is free, for sure! It will cost us both our time, skill, and work. Also, you or me may spend our own money on items outside the session such as props, wardrobe, hair and make-up, fuel, food, hotels, and other accommodations, to elevate the results of the free photo session.

If you’re wondering how much money you might be saving requesting a TFP session rather than hiring me straight out, to give you an idea: my rates begin at $400 an hour!

What are the Terms & Conditions?

Each photo session arranged will be discussed separately, and the terms may vary widely. The number of pictures which we deliver to you can range from a single photograph up to all shots taken. Speed of delivery can vary as well, from a few days up to several months. Unless such a time period has been specifically discussed and agreed prior to the shoot, finished pictures ideally should be delivered within two weeks up to 4 weeks of the session.

How can I use my photos?

The photography is intended for use in our respective public portfolios, so we may both use them to represent our artistic and professional abilities via comp cards, prints, advertisements, social media posts, blogs, or websites.

The photography itself may not be used commercially (meaning we mutually can’t sell the images for profit, or exchange them for anything) without written permission from each other, but we can certainly use them to self-promote upon our own websites, blogs, social media accounts, or public portfolios.

Depending on a number of factors we might agree to limit or ‘not publicly use’ some of the photos from our session. Some of this work may only be made available for consumption on printed comp cards or photo books to limit public consumption or exposure.

We may agree to only use specifically agreed upon photography (which means, the only the very best photos), or we may agree to use certain photos only in printed publications but not the internet, for example. We will certainly discuss it before, during or right after the session.

May I bring an escort?

Absolutely, yes!

In conclusion, your privacy and safety are my upmost concern. Wether you bring an escort or come alone, you will be treated at all times as respectfully and professionally as you are comfortable with.

Do I have to sign a model release contract?

Yes, in order to protect both sides, the model and the photographer, we will both sign a model release contract before the photo shoot, in which is stated for what purpose your photos can be used and that the photos are still owned by the photographer.
