1. apply to a company who is hiring for the position of 'photographer'.
2. develope your own business plan, market and advertise yourself.

if you're a freelance anything marketing and advertising skills are more important than actual skills at the job.

of course its all about who you know.

Find out how the business actualy functions and how you fit in to it .
Learn what the product you are selling/marketing is first.
Without direction or focus in the work you are selling (that is the product , your services) there isnt a platform to begin writing a business plan on.
Then get off of Modelmayhem and go out in to the real world..
  This isn't the industry and asking how to find work on a website where 95% of the members are either asking the same thing or don't really care .
Get on Google start looking for books , search sites of the pros who are actualy working and ask about assisting , looking your area(London is a MAJOR hub) and start there .
Make a serious effort BUT make it in the real world .

   Not on MM

  Best advice I can think of giving you or anyone else .
