Welcome to GG. Looking forward to seeing some of your work. As far as getting models goes, depends a lot on your location. But in general there are two ways. Have a killer portfolio, get it out there, and you will get models. Or offer enough $ to to the right girls and shoot away. Thats the simplified version. What have you done so far for models?

Not much done with or for models. I have just started to get into real photography and would hate to spend alot of money hiring a model to not get the shot.

Your close to some pretty big towns, you may have some luck on sites like Model Mayhem or OMP. But if your just starting out you'll probably have better luck with family or friends. I've also shot some women just because I approached them in public and asked. The trick here is to come off as a photographer looking for great looking models and not as a creep looking to score.

I didn't know it was possible for a man to approach a woman without them thinking we were trying to score!

It is a challenge, if possible I prefer having my wife do it.

Thanks to the douchebags (GWCs) who use a camera as a way to try to score, it's tougher to ask strangers to model. BUT not impossible.
