* What is a "Stock Model"? Photographers shooting model released stock imagery are looking for all kinds of people including grandparents, families, vertically challenged people, character faces, dancers, comedians, clowns, doctors, bus drivers, and all kinds of sizes, colors and styles in between. Models too! But regular folks who will sign a release and can make themselves reliably available for photo shoots are needed too. That's you!
MODELS PLEASE : Check for references! Use the buddy system for interviews and go-see's.

* Regarding posting nudes - Nudes are okay unless just a snapshot full-frontal of a naked person. We will decide whether your nude is acceptable for the site.
