It's a fair question and deserves a fair answer.

With any trade / test / TFP anything goes and the value is in the eye of the person receiving it. The big thing is to set the expectation BEFORE the shoot. In your last post the model was all bent about paying for prints - but it was because she didn't realize that you were going to charge her. We can all run the model down for wanting, wanting, wanting - but heck, any of us would tend to take something given us if it were free.

I think your list of what you will and won't do is a good guide for YOU. When you invite a model, let him / her know what you intend to provide. If they need something else, then they can always ask. Make sure that someone sends an e-mail that documents what's agreed upon. That's the key.

Asking us if a particular package is "fair" is a waste of time. We're not the model and we're not going to act as a "TFP court" to determine if the "package" offered is fair or not.

Sounds like an interesting shoot....

Have fun
