Re: glamour models

Not sure how much activity there is in your part of the world but in the UK we tend to use web sites such as Purestorm, Purpleport and Model Mayhem. I think that of the three Model Mayhem is more international, but there must be similar sites local to you.

You deal directly with the models and the rate will vary. Those needing to build up their portfolios will often do time for pictures, the more experienced will charge from 20GBP to around 50GBP depending on their experience and the type of shoot.

A good model is well worth the outlay as they can help you out a lot during the shoot.

Could you join a camera club that does studio work and share the cost between several members?

Re: glamour models

check out local face book groups for photographers and such like and check out model mayhem a lot of up and coming or new models will be willing to do T/F ( time for cd or prints or images etc for the portfolio)

ok just noticed you are in New Zealand so i dont suppose model mayhem will cover there but there may be an alternative

Re: glamour models

Another option might be an amateur drama group. Snag is that they will probably not be experienced in modelling so your results will not be as good as with professional or semi professional models, and you may find that the shooting more difficult. Theatre lighting is also not as good for photography as studio or maybe even natural light.

Joining a club that has a studio will also mean that you get access to lighting, backgrounds and advice from those with more experience.

Re: glamour models

I should point out that the prices I quoted in my earlier post are hourly rates.

Used to do the Publicity shots for the local theatre troupe until I fell through a covered hole in the stage from whence the genie appeared in the Panto I was shooting. No one bothered to tell me that under the carpet was thin air.and a 6 ft drop.
