    Ask them how many shoots they've done, what they've done. Link up with an agency that has some models. Other than that make sure they're hot. Or you could go the Redman route, and make them plus size models... maybe not. Oh, models, and agencies are a easy to find just shop around and follow your gut.

    Go with a modeling agency and look at all models book and if they don"t have a facecard or no what it is get rid of them a facecard is a card that shows they head shot as well as on the back other photosofthem

    My 2 cents:

    Change

    "half dressed" to "undressed"

    Depends what your looking for... there are loads of cheap amateur models!

    Just make sure you get 1 photo of them and their id card together which clearly shows it is them and their age and you probably need to get them to sign some paper work to give the rights to the images etc. I do have all this somewhere but can't find it atm!

    I'd go to OneModelPlace or ModelMayhem - You can find models ranging from the inexperienced to the experienced and find someone to fit within your pay model. You can also find photographers if you aren't going to be taking the photos yourself.

    just make sure you let the models know "close legs don't get fed"

    This is excellent advice. I got burned by a guy when I found out after the shoot that he was using under-aged models. I probably could have gotten away with it, but I didn't want to mess around with it. There's some templates online for release forms that are really easy to use.

    Go to ModelMayhem D O T C O M It's your best chance at getting a good chick cheap. OMP and all the other sites are crap. I know from experience.
