So, I've been seeing a few members here taking photos of the same models. I feel there are great benefits in doing that. You get better photos from people who have worked with you in the past and know your style. I'm also thinking that the creative ideas could come from both the model and the photographer after a while. Also, comfort in knowing the person you're working with could lead to some great spontaneous photos.
I've tried contacting models on Model Mayhem but have had no luck (there goes $32). While I'm not a big fan of Craigslist in general anymore I figured I'd post an ad there since I believe I'll find someone closer to my location doing that.
If anyone has any better ideas in finding a model to work with on a regular basis just for creative purposes, let me know. I'd be interested in hearing your ideas.
