I was wondering if anyone could help me with getting any new amature models to help me with the websites I help out. I am looking for girls that are willing to do nudes in a strip type fasion. Please see my profile. As I do this as a hobby and to help out my websites I like I cannot afford to pay alot of money. Profesional models just cost too much. Many other times a model says she would LOVE to work with me and then never shows up.
Any suggestions fro models, photographers??
Help!

your question and profile make you sound like a Guy With Camera, you need to offer something to the model that they can use in there port other than nudes or find a model and pay for their time. right now your ports not that strong and few models will be willing to strip for you.

I wouldn't work with you unless for pay, especially doing nude work. Many models on MM have the same mindset that I do, "no nudes unless for pay"
Why? Because there's a monetary demand.

Judging from your casting calls, you've been trying to do this for 18 months. If you haven't figured it out by now, maybe it's time to find a new hobby.

Contrary to popular belief, there simply aren't droves of attractive young models with nice bodies who can't wait to strip naked for amateur photographers who intend to plaster their photos on nude paysites.

What websites? Your casting calls and this post give the impression that you're providing content for adult sites. If I'm wrong I will take it back but that is the impression that I got. If that is the case, you should expect to pay the models something.

If you're not paying enough (or not paying at all), you need to offer something to make it worth their while, such as usable images.

there's quite a few workshops around ny/nj that would have exactly the type of models you're looking for...

make sure you bring your business cards, and explain your ideas, and i'm sure you'll be able to find someone...

plus you're already met Sativa...

It sounds like you're just trying to get models naked.  I wouldn't show up either if you made me an offer like this.

What are you actually paying? What is the usage of the photos?
