Seems like a stupid question, but just wanted to get some ideas on how to find models for shooting. I would consider myself a beginner photographer and would like to get some advice on getting models so I can get some more experience. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Just don't offer candy, or ask them to help you find your lost puppy!

Model Mayhem, One Model Place, Model Locate and others have all been good for a few fresh faces. Be selective and make sure that you are prepared for the ones that flake out at the last minute. But I've found a number of good local talent for practicing on over the past 2 years at these and other similar sites.

Good Luck!

Thanks I will give those websites a shot! As for female friends, I always worry about making things awkward.

lol okay seriously though, I used to complain and complain I couldnt find models, Model Mayhem and one Model place and sites like that just werent working for me, seems every chick with a camera phone wants paid on those sites, Well I wasnt and still am not in a position where I can pay or where I will pay models, because Im not using the images for profit or have clients paying me for the end result. So I started scouring Myspace for willing victims those myspace girls all want pretty pics for their profiles,even if they arent going for a Model Career,it gives you people to practice with and I've found some real goodies on Myspace!

That has a lot to do with their personality and the way you interact with them. Try talking to one about the work you want to do and see how they react. Don't mention you'd like to shoot them just mention the ideas you had for a shoot (one you'd think they'd do great in) and ask them if they know anyone that might want to model for you... Additional benefit they might know someone that does want to model for you.

You failed to mention what type of photography you will be doing. Are you just needing to learn how to set up lights?

I Noticed in a later post you said...." As for female friends, I always worry about making things awkward. "

I hate to assume anything, so what are you needing? Nude models? Lingerie? In order for anyone to come close to answering, you might give some more information. The modeling sites mentioned might help, but do not put too much "faith" in them.

So.. just beginning.. ,,,,,,then what type of model do you need?

Depending on your location, people on ModelMayhem may somtimes have groups shoots giving you the chance to photograph models without the one on one fear that can sometimes creep in. My website has a few examples of shots I've taken during a couple of group shoots from ModelMayhem. I am working on getting up the courage to ask the wife if I can schedule some time with a model and rent a studio for a few hours!
