If you are a model who would like to easily expand your portfolio, read on. We’re looking for several models to exchange their time in a photo shoot in return for free digital photos. This offer is open to children, teens & adults.

The photo shoot will take place at the location of your choice (within a reasonable drive from Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania) and will take from 1 1/2 to several hours. We’ll digitally edit & enhance the best photographs, and then make them available for you to download within 2 weeks. You can expect to receive the best 5 photos from the shoot which you can then print or add to your online portfolios.

We travel to the following locations for photo shoots:

  • Pennsylvania: Shrewsbury, York, Red Lion, Glen Rock, Lancaster, Hanover, Dallastown, Stewartstown, Fawn Grove, Spring Grove, New Freedom
  • Maryland: Bel Air, Baltimore, Forest Hill, Baldwin, Fallston, Jarrettsville, Cockeysville, Towson, Edgewood, Monkton, Phoenix

If you are interested in this time-for-print photo shoot opportunity, please carefully and thoroughly submit the form below.

If we have any questions about your submission or if we need additional information from you, we will be in contact.

If you are accepted for a shoot, we will then need you to fill out one of the following forms (downloadable pdf files from our photographer forms page):

  • Adult Model Release Form (TFP) – if you are 18 or older
  • Minor Model Release Form (TFP) – if you are under 18; a parent/legal guardian will need to sign it

If you have any questions about this TFP photo shoot opportunity for models, amateur models or those interested in possibly entering the modeling business, please feel free to ask us anytime.


What is a TFP shoot?

TFP stands for “time for prints” or “time for photos.” It’s an arrangement with a photographer to exchange your modeling time in return for selected photos/prints from the shoot. In our case, we’ll provide you with the best 5 pictures which will be retouched. We actually do a TFDP shoot which is a “time for downloadable prints” photoshoot. Some models request a TFC shoot (time for prints on CD) or TFD shoot (time for prints on DVD).

How many pictures will I receive?

We guarantee you’ll receive the best 5 pictures from the shoot (which we’ll pick out). Occasionally, we may throw in some extras, but 5 is the promised and safe expectation.

Will you come to my location for a TFP shoot?

Based on how far away your location is from Shrewsbury, PA, we may be able to come to you. If your location is too far away, an alternate photo shoot location can be found. We regularly travel to York, Hanover, Lancaster in Pennsylvania as well as Bel Air, Fallston, Baltimore, Forest Hill, Towson, Manchester in Maryland.

What should I bring to the TFP shoot?

Bring at least 4 different outfits. Some recommendations include

  • prom/formal dress
  • sports/athletic attire
  • casual (slacks/jeans & top)
  • swimwear
  • dancewear (leotard/ballet apparel)
  • costume (be creative!)
  • loungewear/sleepwear

Bring any props that you will need, including hats, musical instruments, decorative fans/umbrellas, etc.

Do you have any specific clothing, jewelry or makeup guidelines?

If you are accepted for a TFP shoot, we’ll send you our modeling clothing, jewelry and makeup guidelines to ensure that our photographer will be happy and you will be pleased with the end product.

Who do you usually select?

We primarily select models which are girls within the 10-26 age range. While these make up the majority of those we shoot, we welcome applications from guys as well as from girls younger than 10 or older than 26.

I’m interested! What do I do next?

Please contact us, and we’ll let you know what happens next!

05/12/2014 Note: Our latest TFP offer is good through July 31, 2014. Please note that we’re being very selective because our schedule is rapidly filling up!
