First of all here's to hoping this forum isn't dead and gone. Second of all I'm really just a geek with a camera hoping to get a chance to photograph some fine art and hope my camera skills are at least up to snuff at making it look as good as it does in reality.

I'm still working on the part where I find some free models without a portfolio. Being in college can suck sometimes.

suck it in and start asking. It will get easier as you go.

The worst they can say is no. Start by asking to do some casual images outdoors.

If I were in your shoes I would carry my portfolio around, maybe in like an ipod or something like that. Then when you are with someone and they ask, what's your major? You could say something like, "Photography, would like like to see some of my pictures?" Or perhaps, "economics but my passion is photography"
After she has looked at a couple say something like, "but my biggest problem is finding people who will model." You will get offers. Find some shots you like. Shots you want to do. As you are shooting, show some samples of things you would like to do. Say, "Any of these look like something you would like to try?"

You will find willing models sometime.

Interesting idea. It gives me a use for my hand-me-down Palm Tungsten E.
