I love the medical one you did! That one is really fabulous. Didn't know it was your wife. No one I know is willing to do stock, well, at least not if there face is showing, so it will take sometime before I can get there. I'm hoping to be able to trade TFP and that's how I'll get people. I've also been a bit hesitant about bringing people to my "studio". I actually have all the equipment (my upstairs neighbor lets me use is lights and stands) but it's currently housed in a studio apartment with a mildewy bathroom that will be fixed whenever they get to the renovations to combine our apartment.

Yeah, soon. I think I'm almost ready. Baby steps.

Oh, and you can set the minimum to $75 but I left it at the default $100.

I'm surprised that you don't have anyone willing to model for stock... I have two suggestions - 1. Craigslist. My last ad got me about 50 responses. You can definitely find people there! 2. ModelMayhem.com - seems like a dumb place at first glance, but its very useful. If you're comfortable contacting people, then there are plenty there. Its been pretty good for me so far. I would defintiely start a page there - it can't possibly hurt!

I know what you mean about being reluctant to bring people into your studio. Mine is in a large converted bedroom in my house. Its really old, and a bit embarrassing sometimes. But, I think people see the photos and look past the house. I DO think that I lose some people when they find out the studio is not a stand-alone business. Oh well.

Also, don't forget about outdoor shoots. I've done several 'out on the streets' shoots that have turned out well. You also get a variety of backdrops that you can't get in the studio... paint, brick, metal, wood, etc. You're at the mercy of the weather though.
