I have had great success getting work published and shown in art shows, as well as run an independent publishing group with several collaborators.
For the reasons above, I am do not currently pay models for shoots.
I do however, offer models royalties from the usage fees I get from photos and royalties from products made with those images.
I also have a fashion portfolio site called Heels&Candy, which is paid very close attention to by The Industry, and has been an incredible launching pad for models like Hattie Watson, Alysha Nett, L. Shima Darby, and so on...
If you are interested in working together, you don't need to have the most experience, but you do need to be professional and passionate.
