I've had a couple newer models message me asking for advice.

I don't mind answering any questions they might have.

Once upon a time, I thought there was a "model mentors" list...

not sure if such a thing still exists... it would be nice if it did

I sat good idea...if you haven't yet...you should check out someone in your area...he is a publisher/photographer, and I think he would like your look.

Awesome Paige!!

I did not see it in the FAQ for this forum, nor in the "list of lists" in general industry.

The worst that can happen is that they decline or not respond which is what you're probably expecting anyways.

There is a thread called "list of lists" yet that list does not seem to be in it.

There is also a FAQ thread stickied at the top of this forum, yet is the list in there?

I don't know that it needs its own forum, but being added in those two places seems ridiculously obvious.
