Time For Print or Trade For Print (TFP) is a term many photographers use to describe an agreement between model and photographer, where the photographer agrees with the model and or agency to deliver a number of photos.
Typically, a written TFP agreement or TFP contract is made between the model and the photographer before the TFP photoshoot and is signed by both parties. TFP is a collaboration, not free labor.
There is no financial transaction involved between model and photographer. Possibly any cost made for the photoshoot can be equally shared between model and photographer, for example the rental of a photoshoot location. In case of expenses, the contribution of these shared costs should be mentioned in the TFP agreement or TFP contract.
The benefits of a TFP photoshoot are that the model can build a portfolio of photographs to show to prospective clients at little or no cost, while the photographer gets a model for a particular project or portfolio.

The following general TFP conditions apply, but may vary depending on the mutual agreement and will be described in more detail in the TFP contract:
