Do you want to shoot stock shots of people?Can you afford to pay a model?Me neither!So I decided to try to think of ways to get people to model for free without relying too much on friends and familyHere are some ideas I had.1) Set up a joint make over party with an Avon or Mary Kay rep.Let her do facials and offer to take after pictures.The partiers can have free digital images in exchange for a model release .2) Offer to set up in a small area of a local salon the day before... continue reading
