Starting a new portrait business and finding models to build your portfolio

Are you a new photographer?  Are you trying to build a portfolio and looking for a way to get models to pose for you?  Are you looking for sources for new ideas for your photos?  What should your portfolio look like?  What are the expectations of a model when you shoot?  What should you expect when you're in the process of building a portfolio?  When can you expect to start making money?  What should you charge?  What do I need to aware of when I start a new photography business?

These questions and others will be answered in this panel workshop.  We will have an experienced model with us to discuss expectations for the model.  We will have some statistics and quotes from experienced photographers about starting your business and building a portfolio.  We will offer you some tips about finding subjects to photograph as well as other expectations in starting your business.

Bring specific questions you may have about portrait photography or model etiquette.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
