If you go on Model Mayhem or One Model Place, then TFP is no new thing to you. It’s surprising how many amateur photographers, (as well as talented) and perverts stalk these sites to find FREE models. As models of the Hawaii scene, we need to make a stand and say NO to TFP. I admit, there are a few very talented photographers that I would like to collaborate with, and I enjoy working with, however, you need to seriously screen your photographers, get referrals, and check out their portfolio’s thoroughly before shooting with them. GWC’s: (Guy’s With Camera’s). Don’t be a victim to GWC’s. Anybody with a camera can claim to be a photographer, and really they are just perving out on you!
I want to have a “NO MORE FREE SHOOTS MODEL PARTY.” Are you in??? Everybody in Hawaii does fashion shows for free. There is no paid work because you guys do it to the scene. You are so desperate to be a part of the show, that most of you are doing these show’s for free. From time to time, I admit, I have done a few shows free, but only in exchange for a favor. NO MORE TFPS. WHO’S WITH ME??? If you are a model and support this idea, please support our NEW and UPCOMING events.
