    My interpretation of the "No pay" bubble under the map to the right of the description.

    Meh. Sounds like she's looking for a pretty standard TFP arrangement but isn't familiar with the terminology or methods.

    She needs a TFP shoot and then she can print the images herself.

    Someone will do this, no doubt.

    My interpretation is that she is not asking to be paid.

    No, she's offering no pay. If you look at other ads in that category, that's where they list how much they are offering for the work. If this was under "services offered" it would be different, but in "creative gigs" the poster is looking to hire someone.

    A TFP with digital files, prints and an MUA? That's pretty rich....
