I'm starting to look at putting a website together as some sort of portfolio & as my main focus is/will be family, children, babies, maternity etc, I need these types of people to practice on & to use for my portfolio.
Considering I'm relatively 'new' to photography, what is the best way to go about this. Do I offer free photo shoots & give the disc with images away? Or is it acceptable to offer a free shoot with 1 print (or not print) & then offer the disc with the best images for say $100?
The main area I need 'models' to practice on is maternity & newborn.
Any advice and/or ideas would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance
