    check this out
    Modelling Services Directory different models rate differently, just email them for rate.

    anyway, you should try on your female friends first, buy them lunch dinner will be fine.

    If you could not find a model even after offering them their rates, you need to work on your social skills.

    I think TS is referring to his female friends....


    anyway, sometime I offer TFCD, some didn't take up my offer, cos I don't know how to do porcelain touch up. and I also believe because I hardly post in portrait and poses, people can't find my samples.... lol

    Just to let you know that you wont go far if you took up the hobby primarily to shoot xiao mei meis. If you have a hard time socialising with your female friends, you will definitely struggle to make strangers(the models) feel comfortable and to believe in you.


    Otherwise good luck for your endeavours.

    TFCD = No model fees => F.O.C., in exchange for pictures ( in the form of CD )

    no offends, you can forget about offering TFCD for the time being.

    just go out and find anyone willing to let you practice your skills, till you able to deliver something decent, than consider offering TFCD.

    If you're a newbie, then all the more you need pro-models, because they're "supposed" to be able to pose for you with initiative (and limited directing), and you can focus on framing and composition (and figuring out the correct camera settings)

    If you engage newbie models, you should at least have the skills to pose or guide them along. else you'll be staring at each other and not knowing what to do (or shoot).
