    So I finally came to the decision that this year would by my building year, then next year will be my 1st big push in advertising and getting my name out. So I sent out an email at work basically saying I was offering TFCD sessions.... I had decided on 10 sessions, I had 6 filled up before I even sent the email, and had the other 4 booked within 5 minutes... plus about 10-15 other people still wanting portraits as paying customers.... Damn, it feels good to be gangsta:cool:

    I just ordered my business cards today, and booked another wedding for next month...I have thought about doing some TFCD trades as well, to see if I can ge my name out. What was your target audience, and what communication method did you use?

    TFCD = Time For CD
    TFP = Time for Prints

    For new photographers, its a way to build up your portfolio because you don't have to pay the model, and the same for models since they don't have to pay for pictures. A release form is usually signed by the model stating that the pictures can't be used for commercial purposes.

    Everytime I offer TF* I get a ton of responses. Mine is not totaly free though. I charge $25 for the cost of the DVD and the shipping. Most people are fine with that.
