Advice #1 for any llama, new or experienced, is to always CHECK REFERENCES. Always contact people a photographer has worked with. If they don't credit their llamas, you might want to take a few steps back.

Ask questions like, how was the shoot experience? Just because the photos came out well doesn't mean the experience was good.

Make friends with the other llamas in your area, specially those who you've ask for a reference. They are more likely to give you the scoop on photogs they have worked with, and could also provide introductions to people who are worth working with. You will find llamas will form a sorority of sorts and provide you with a lot of good networking opportunities.

Read the Avoid Scams link on your "my stuff" page.  Also make sure to check out www.newmodels.com

The list you created can be useful to photographers so they have an idea of where you want to take your portfolio.

Welcome to the Mayhem.

Welcome to MM!

I suggest thoroughly filling out your bio and details. Models who aren't clear about their experience, measurements, shoot expectations, and genres aren't likely to be consulted with.

Also, definitely go to the Casting/Travel tab and post a local availability notice to let photographers know you are open for work. Be sure to be clear about your shoot idea, if you want to work TF, if you do your own hair and makeup, etc.

Have fun, be safe, and good luck!

don't cash checks from strangers!

the biggest complaint i see from models about trade shoots is not getting images. if the photographer has credits check with the models to see if they got images.

if you need to bring someone who will stay on set with you then that will limit the number of photographers you can work with. i think most are ok with a driver who drops you off, says hello and then heads to the nearest starbucks. or some will be fine if you bring your own MUA (makeup artist). likewise some are ok if you bring another female model. but if you want to bring a boyfriend that could be an issue.
