    Default Some Advice Needed : Venturing in China for Model Photo Shoots / Tour

    I guess this would be the best place here to start my thread. I was thinking of going to China and do some model shooting as well as tour the place. I have never stepped into China before and have no idea where to look, start or ask. Internet is full of information but they are all very generic and directed at the would-be tourist. I am looking to do some photo tour and shoot some nice models there.

    I would like to seek advice from experienced CS-ers on the where/how/who questions. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    Did you get your inspiration from another KPT thread?

    Actually no leh. I have had this thought for a loooooooong time. I tried looking for forums like this, groups, lobangs, etc. until I got frustrated and finally decided to pop the question here asking for help. Is there one thread in KPT too?

    I was hoping if we have some local brudders who ever went there and did some shoots. Maybe can ask them to try link up or something.

    Yes. She did several locations in different parts of China.

    I think it would be great if you can get a Singapore or Thai girl to travel with you there saving hunting around for models. I'm sure many models would jump into the prospect of sharing a room with you.

    China is very big. Got sea, got river, got mountain, got desert, got forests. For weather got tropical, got temperate, got montane, got freezing cold. You need to first narrow down what you want to see and where you want to go.

    For models, China has with 56 ethnic races. Got kids, got old grandmas, got mature ladies, and not so mature ladies. You need to decide which kind of China girls you want to shoot. Maybe can join moko or poco and start from there.

    Let's just say to start things similar to what we are doing locally -- Just getting some nice XMM to do some photo shoots and then branch out from there to more interesting things.

    hood up with their local photography clubs is your best bid.
