    I have been shooting kids for a year. Kids and their moms at times...or their dads. But I am really looking for some less hectic time behind the camera and would love to learn the subtleties of light, posing and directing a shoot (instead of herding). But no takers in the family and I cant really think of alot of friends who would be interested. That said, i am not looking for professional models either. Just people comfortable and natural in front of a camera. Its kind of an out there question, but any ideas on how to look for people willing?

    I 2nd this suggestion. I've looked around on Model Mayhem a few times. There are a lot of professional models but there are many amateurs too. Many whom are interested in TFP or TFCD (Trade For Pictures/CD). Although they might be a little rough around the edges in terms of poses and expressions, this might be a benefit to you. I find that brainstorming, creativity, and communication is higher between open-minded people who aren't set in their ways.

    Do you mean, this site might not be safe for viewing at work? If so, then yeah, you're right. This site does contain nude photography.

    We have used family and church friends before. Basically anyone who you are already comfortable being around and would make a good model.

    This is kind of interesting because this is my problem. I don't know anyone, either, who would let me use them for portraits. Also part of my problem is, not that I am a shy person, but I am a bit shy about asking someone to pose for me. I agree with Larissa to find someone you are comfortable being around.

    meetup.com is another idea. In my area, there are a few modeling, fashion and photography meet up groups who get together throughout the month for photoshoots. Meetup groups are a great place to network with other photographers as well.
