What is the meaning of photo freak?
Are you a photo freak? Meaning you have to take pictures of everything you do?
I saw the above sentence in Google search.
In that context, it's either someone who really likes to take photos and photographs everything (probably in a quite annoying way!) or just someone who really likes photographs (perhaps looking at them, buying them etc).
Can we use the phrase for the person who likes very much to give poses(not in annoying way) for the photos?
Model is a professional. I m talking about a normal person. Person who likes to be taken photos.

There are many similar expressions - control freak, computer freak etc.
They usually mean that someone does something a lot and is hooked on this particular thing.
A person who likes to have their photograph taken and is always posing whenever someone picks up a camera could be called an exhibitionist (although that does not have to involve cameras). I can't think of any other term (well, I did think of a couple but I Googled them and they don't mean quite the same thing). My flatmate is a photographer and he said they don't really have a word for people who immediately throw themselves in front of a camera every time it appears!
