Received an email today from a photographer in Miami, FL. Here's what he said:

"Girls all want me to shoot for free TFP and all that. I shoot more and more shots, and feel I'm getting better and better as a shooter, but can't seem to get paid for anything. So my question is... how does one get paid to shoot sexy girls?"

Wow! Tough one! Really tough!

My last update talked about finding models to shoot. You know, to shoot for free, that is, TFP. Now, I'm asked about entering the next stage of one shooter's desired evolution in photography: Getting paid to shoot models. That's a way tougher question to answer than how to find models to shoot TFP!

Here's what I told the dude in Miami: READ MORE?

Stole this from that link. It say's more about todays photography then anything I've read in a while and I agree completely...

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """""""""""""""""
It's no secret these are tough times for many photographers. Technology has put competent, nearly no-brainer, image-capturing capabilities into the hands of the masses. Couple that with the internet, a place where, IMO, the quality bar hasn't simply been lowered, it's been very nearly discarded, and the playing field has been leveled in more than a few ways.
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """"""""""""""""""

I see a lot of so called "Pro's" with the absolute worst pics in there portfolios. Tree's growing out of the women, backs of hands, bottoms of feet. But it's called "artistic." Uhm, or it's just someone picked up a camera and didn't do any background research into proper technique. Throw in the "we can fix it in Photoshop" people. Well, if ya can take a proper pic why wouldn't you.

Anyway, great work.

For payed shoots, Also try the strip clubs in the area. Shoot a couple of the girls telling them it's for a project for free. Let them pass a bunch of pics around and the other girls won't let them be the only ones with cards of themselves to show.

You're right. I forgot to mention strip clubs. (How could anyone forget strip clubs?) Lots of potential there. I know of a few photographers who mine "gentleman's clubs" for victims, I mean models. Some of them turn it into semi-regular paid gigs.
