TFP Shoots: Everything You Need To Know

Want to book some TFP shoots? We share all you need to know about how to set up a TFP photoshoot, working with TFP collaborators, and how to find TFP models.

What is TFP Photography?

TFP usually stands for Trade For Pictures or Photos . A team—generally a photographer and a model (or models)—collaborates on a photography project. Everyone works for free, but they all receive the TFP shots to use in their portfolios. Hair stylists, makeup artists, and photography assistants can also take part in TFP photoshoots as well. The term Time For Print is also occasionally used.

How Do I Put Together a TFP Shoot?

As the photographer in the mix, you really have the most control over a TFP shoot. If the shoot is your brainchild, it’s time to assemble your dream team. You’ll want to find creatives that can help you achieve the best possible product. Your list of recruits may include:

Hair and Makeup Professionals

Nothing ruins a great session like a wonky eyelash or deflated hair.


Wardrobe can play a major role in creating the mood of your shoot.


Depending on the type of TFP shoot you’re building can determine what kind of model you’re looking for.
