Trade for Pics: TFP is the terminology used when creative colleagues in the industry come together and collaborate to help each other to generate content. It could be purely only for portfolio usages or/and could be used for other uses such as self-advertising materials too. In rare instances TFP could be also pure testing the model or/and other creatives abilities before very big production shoots so some cases no images would be used from this test shoot. Other instances the photographer needs to experiment some new techniques, equipment, etc. before using them with clients, sometimes this may generate great photos which can be offered to the creatives who participated but there is a chance of not working out too well.
