Hi Kevin,

Take small steps - shoot any model - male or female, old or young - build some credibility and some skill before jumping straight into topless - if you want good artistic photo's then dashing off to shoot flesh is not the right approach and may make you look like you are in the small group that your model contact suggested.

If you want experienced models you should pay for experience, if not make sure your photo's are good enough for them the waste two hours and travel costs.


Also be very clear about what's in the shoot before the shoot, don't ask for more during the shoot. Don't shoot too revealing the first time with a model.
Look at using model release forms - make sure you check the model is over 18 and consider a chaperone for you and for her/him.

Finally watch out for occasional scams that might put you in a tricky or even dangerous situation.

What you say on your website is slightly different to this thread, it makes you sound as if you've done alot of this work and are advertising for paid work? Not sure whether you can just offer female students a discount on production of student card, I'd think you have to be a bit careful of sexism there.

You've changed the 'images' on your website since you asked the same question last year. Some of us have good memories Wink

Not surprised you cant get models, you dont have to look far on the net to find you and most models would do their research before replying to an advert. You need help with something but photography isnt it.
