Hello
First of all, let me say tanks for all the good advices You give here and
I apologize for any English mistake I made.

A little introduction:
I have worked like an assistant for an Italian photographer mostly in the
field of electronic product catalog and because I know photoshop very well
most of my work was doing photo retouching.

At the same time I have started to take some photo, mainly of people
(the photographic field that i like the most) and girls, especially in the east
Europe, where I have a girlfriend and a lot of friends.

Until now, I was doing this just for made some practice and experience but
in the last travel, one month ago, I have know a girl that in my opinion can
be a really good model and I want try to do something for her.

What I am asking here is:
Someone of you can give me some advice on what is the best way to do
something for her, considering that in her country it's almost impossible
to have a turistic visa?

An opinion about her (you can see her on my site, the first 5 photos under
the glamour gallery or if you prefer i can post the images here...but I need
to figure out how i can do it) considering that she is eighteen, she is never
been in front of a camera before and I am not a professional photographer.

Thanks for the attention, Walter.

Walter i'm a little confused about what your asking? when you say "what is the best way to do something for her" do you want to take more pix of her? or get her to come to Italy?

the pictures that you have taken of her the first 5 on your site are very nice. you should post them here.

your work is good. but if its complicated to shoot models from different countries try to shoot girls/models who are in your town i'm sure there are plenty who would like to work with you. be sure to show them your portfolio so they can see that your serious about photography.

good luck

Swing

For SWING_THE_PHOTOG:

What I mean is that, where she live (Moldova) it's almost impossible to find some good and serious
works as a model, so I have to find something here or outside of her country.
Maybe a model agency? (i don't know how model agency works but they have also models from the est europe).

I know that it's more complicated to shoot outside of your country, especially in the EX-Soviet Republic
(crossing th border widh flash, camera and other equipment... ), but anytime I come back in Moldova
there are some friends of the models...parent of the models...friends of friends that want some photos.
(and sometime, if you are lucky, you can find some really good one)

At soon as possible I upgrade my membership so I can post some images.

For gaborm:

She is from Moldova
For the car you mean the Mitsubishi GSX Turbo 16V 4WD.
I had one, imported from USA, until two years ago ...great car.

Checked out your portfolio and you have some very nice images there. I especially like your B&W conversions. I also notice you list yourself as a "beginner". Your modesty is refreshing.
