    I do almost 100% people pictures. I notice there are sites on the web that have models looking for assignments. Have any of you out there used these sites ? Like OneModelPlace ? How did it work out ?

    I'm in the same boat. I love taking b/w glamour photos but don't really want to pay professional models for practice. There's the old "I get to take pictures of you, you get copies for your portfolio"...but I always feel like a pervert.

    I'd also like to see if anyone has ideas.

    The best success I've had is a newpaper ad, however also expensive. I have approached women at stores or shops, but that has NEVER been a good thing. One my associates has his WIFE talk to them first, and that seems to work alright. For me, sometimes it's -like- I'm picturing a model sitting modestly on the front porch of one of the beautiful victorian homes in this town...and all she can think of from the start is..do I have to take my clothes off ??

    Mail order brides eh?
    Just think, ask them to send a photo and you wouldn't need to do any of the work!

    My roommate, who is a dancer, asked me to take some for her. Now I am asking to get some of the other dancers to do a shot with me I learned a lot on the first one. Another thought I had was to hand out business cards, but I think I would feel like a perv going up to strangers doing that!! How did the newspaper ad work out?

    we put an ad in the paper and got a ton of responces (we had to sift through them)... were only offering them free 8x10's ... my hubby and i are shooting a guy tuesday ... he said, "i'll do whatever u want me to do and wear whatever u want me to wear." :shock: .. so of course we have something strange in mind :lol:

    Dew,

    yes im using a model release form for all "human" subjects :wink:


    but u know the strange thing? ... people always seem to love having their picture taken ... this guy said to me, "is this for an exhibit or show?" .. i said, "im an amateur photographer, its for my portfolio." ... he said, "oh, how cool!" *but then again, this is a town of a lot of actors, so their always looking for publicity shots :D

    i had an up and coming unsigned female rapper looking to work with me ... she wasnt strange looking enough :lol: ...
