http://www.glamour101.com <--this is run by Greg Price who's a good guy and the models are pretty open to shooting with newbies. It's a feeding frenzy though at one of these workshops
http://www.socalpromodels.com <--Alan has 'booths' set up in his studio where you can go around a shoot different models in different themed booths
These are workshops that are structured and where you can actually learn something, in addition to meeting models:
http://www.supershoots.com <--JT has very upscale models, a stylist and an MUA, plenty of one on one time
http://www.spectrum-studios.com <--Glenn actually teaches at all his workshops. His style is teach a technique then a few minutes to give it a try. Repeat. Good sessions and good models.
http://www.rolandogomez.com <--Rolando's session begins with his vision and style and then a one on one session with the model
http://www.focusworkshops.com/ <--Rick and Jim run a very decent workshop with lots of mentoring and one on one time in great locations
Word of mouth is another way to get models. For example, my muse will, on a rare occasion, do artistic nudes sessions for the rate you listed, but I wouldn't count on it. I would highly recommend her to a newbie as she knows how to pose and has a wide range of looks. Plus she does her own make up professionally, hair and has an extensive wardrobe (although if you're doing nudes, this doesn't matter so much!) She visits about every month - http://www.onemodelplace.com/SabrinaStarr
Well, this thread confirmed my other observation on internet forums generally, an including this one. When someone ask question, in most cases, beside some people who gives direct answers on asked question, lots (majority) of people will "steal" thread, in a way that they will write they want, even if that writting is not answer on question. Well, let say that justification is that people "don't correctly understand asked question because of language differencies, as we come from different parts of the planet"
I am not complining, only writting my thoughts...
