TFP Policy - Michel P. Poulin - Photographer

Time for Prints is a term many photography communities use to describe an arrangement between a model and a photographer whereby the photographer agrees to provide the model with photographs from the session, and a release or license to use those pictures in return for the model's time. The foundation of the concept of TFP being that both a photographer and a model get together and exchange their 'time', for free, and each receives the photos for their own usage. I use the word “Prints” loosely. Watermarked Social media digital images will be made available, as well as the option to purchase physical prints from the professional labs I work with.

There are benefits to both parties of such an arrangement. 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, their portfolio, or advertising with little if any outlay of cash.


In studio shoots may qualify for "Time for Print" exchange:

1. You must have session concept that I find interesting, be willing to pose for a concept I am working on, or be an early customer for a service I am planning to offer.

2. Model must be 18 or older, or have a legal guardian present at time of shoot.

3. Model / Guardian must sign a Model Release and have valid government issued ID (state or federal) .
