In the past, my company has used model agencies such as Elite and Ford to get models for our lingerie shoots. We have had issues with the models themselves not being very professional, refusing to take shots of thongs, and showing up not prepared for a lingerie photoshoot.
I have been thinking about using services such as Model Mayhem, but have heard bad things about services such as that also.
Our photoshoots are simple. They are against a backdrop and we do not have any overly revealing lingerie. We also crop all shots so that only the body is used and not the head shots. Therefore, I am looking to pay around $350-$400 for a 6 hour shoot.
What are the best ways to find models for photoshoots such as this one?
Thanks in advance,
