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?
