I'm looking at going to the US for a couple of weeks to visit a school friend.
Whilst over there to kill some time during the day I fancy a location shoot with a model as the landscapes are very different to what I can get locally to me.
Are there any websites (or other systems) that allows photographers to put out casting calls to find models who wants to work together?
In the UK photographers tend to use websites such as PurplePort which allows photographers to put out casting calls asking for models, restricted to geographical location and allows you to provide details etc such as portfolios and the all important references.
Sadly the one I use is pretty much UK orientated, I was wondering if there was a US equivalent or an alternate ways photographers can find models to work with.
There's this question here How to find models for portraiture? however the last answer was around four years ago. In the UK ModelMayhem exist(ed), however the trend moved towards PurplePort at some point so am unsure if it's the same elsewhere. The answers again seem to be more angled towards TFP models (What does Time for Print (TFP) mean in practice?). The other obvious answer is to go to some of the agencies representing nationwide, however from experience they tend to charge a fortune and a bit overkill for killing a couple of hours on a Wednesday morning!
