Do you have to be out there?
Is it really necesary for a model to be active on a model forum?
Yes and no. Nobody is waiting for unpleasant experiences or meaningless loss of time. It has little added value for a model to do many TFP shoots that yield worthless photos. In that case: don't!
But it can be a pleasant and educational use of time if you can do fun shoots, make good contacts and gain a lot of experience. Moreover, building a portfolio is essential in the modeling world and there are often very good, friendly and helpful photographers on modeling forums.
You can often select, filter, check and communicate on model forums yourself. After all, as a model and photographer you have the same goal: to take beautiful photos, have fun experiences and learn & perform! And present; last but not least: upload the beautiful result and receive appreciation .....
