I think the number one question I get asked by people (mostly guys, but a lot of female photographers) is where do you find these beautiful models to photograph?
The answer is it depends.
There are many places you can find models (both male and female). You can ask friends to be your model. You can go to a modelling agency and be a photographer for them and they will send you models (and plus you get paid for it!). You can join Facebook Groups (FB Models in your area), you can follow models on Instagram and send them a message to see if they are interested in working with you.
However, the number #1 place I highly recommend to find models is this website: http://www.modelmayhem.com You can find so many models, photographers and makeup artists to work with and build your portfolio.
The two models in this photo… one of them I met from the modelling agency I work with and the other one I met by messaging her on a Facebook Group for models in my area. So it never hurts to ask. Whats the worst that can happen? They say, no… and you look for many more online.
Most models are very nice, they just want you to be respectful and professional during a photoshoot which is always important.
Here’s the final result. Photoshoot with my models, Marinela and Sarah
