    Default How to get a model/models abroad in exchange for photos only?

    I am a wedding photographer. I am shooting a wedding in Europe this summer. I am just wondering how to find models who are willing to work with me in exchange for the photos.

    People recommend Model Mayhem. I have never used it.

    I mainly looking for single models and couples for taking photos at interesting places.

    How should I go about this? Is there anybody here who also had the same problem before?

    Thanks so much!

    Professionals don't use model, they work with them.

    One model place or Model Mayhem.

    There are mixed responses from models and photographers, some people may have better luck.
    anyway, the more you dealing with them, the better you will get, you will know who are those people you should avoid, so it is better you try to start now.

    TS, where are you from?

    I use model mayhem. Models will be more willing to pose for you if you have a good/established portfolio on MM. Amateur models will pose for you as they need the experience, but you need to control 100% of their poses, 100% of the time. Experienced models will only do TF shoots if they see that the photographer is as experienced, if not more experienced than themselves. They do TF shoots very selectively and are mainly looking for photographers that can add value and uniqueness to their portfolio.

    Which part of Europe are you heading to?

    Professional models need to pay bills so unlikely they'll trade but you can start a "casting" thread & try your luck in MM. Otherwise, some talents might be willing to trade.
