Model Wanted

leave a comment »

So, here’s the thing…

I’ve been playing with my camera more and more these days, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the thing I like taking pictures of the most, is people.

BUT… I don’t have anyone to take pictures of. My wife refuses, my kids don’t have the patience, and I don’t have any friends who would do it.

So, I thought I would turn to turn to the internet, but… Well, how do I do this without sound like a pervert?

My idea is to place a post on Craigslist stating something like “Wanted, a model to pose for me. I’m an amateur photographer who wants to take pictures of people, and I am looking for willing models to work for me. This is a non paying gig, but I will give you copies of all the photos taken.” -or something like that. See what I mean, sounds like I’m some creep, right?

Maybe if I came up with some other wording? Maybe if I went into a detailed explanation of my situation? But really, if I make it too long, no one is going to read it. (This is the internet after all. No one reads anything more then 6 sentences. Or so that’s my theory. Which said, makes me doubt that anyone is still reading this.)

Anyway, if anyone has any advice, please let me know what it is. I would greatly appreciate it.
