    Hi All Can someone help me to write up a nice professional advert for advertising free testshoots. I want to post it at varsity and hopefully get some nice ladies willing to pose... It will be mainly portraits with everyday wear. But i wont mind if there is like non professional models aswell,because im not professional its my hobby. I will give the person a cd with the neccessary photos for her effort. I know its alot to ask. I was thinking something like. Free teshoots. I am looking for female models who want some new photos for her portfolio or a female who might be intersted in becomming a model and are looking for a free photoshoot.No experience needed.I am a casual photographer,who have quite a big interest in people photography.The portraits i will take wil consist of wearning everyday stylish clothes. After I have processed the photographs you will be given a cd with the photographs on. I dont mind travelling to suit the model,and the location will be outside and not in a studio. Feel free to email me @ ........

    Put a pic up you have taken, and which model monolight you have, and how big your umbrella is. You may get an offer.

    Oh, a large watermark on the photo may help too.

    Do a little more research as to exactly what you are wanting to do, a couple of links to get you started.

    What Is TFP?

    TFP, Photo Tips, Modeling Portfolios


    Run a Google search using the term "tfp modeling" and you will come up with plenty to read and learn from.

    Thanx alot.

    Exactly what i have in mind.
    Can you perhaps tell me how you will do the wording for such advert so you also include amateur models...

    I searched google and found some ideas....

    I would just like your contribution if you wont mind.

    Thanx alot

    +1 for Model Mayhem. Give it a try, much easier than the avenue you are contemplating.

    It is possible to be a semi professional photographer or a part time professional photographer to have the same work but not making a living out of it but rather for enjoyment...
