A while back when I asked for blog update suggestions, "Jim in Huntsville" wrote: "I read your book and am interested in how you, as a beginner, found models who were willing to let you learn the craft using them as subjects. Every book/blog I've seen on the subject assumes you have a portfolio to show. How do you get started when a) you don't have a portfolio, b) the photography budget doesn't allow for hiring models, and c) as an older man, approaching any younger women to ask if they would like to model comes off as a dirty-old-man, GWC come-on?"

Thanks for the suggestion, Jim!

I think I'll also take the King's suggestion to the White Rabbit and begin at the beginning and end in the end. Well, perhaps not the absolute beginning... but close. I'll begin telling the story of how I began pretty girl shooting which, more than likely, isn't going to have much value in terms of helping others get into it. I will, however, eventually get to sharing some ideas that, hopefully, some of you might find helpful. READ MORE?

Looking foward to this one. I'm 55 and trying to move on from reasonable amateur, but as you say walking up to a pretty girl in the street and asking to take pictures is a hazardous business. :-)
