I've been wanting to use my 8x10 more lately, and now that I just bought a Hasselblad, I REALLY can't stand to not be actively shooting portraits and the like. However, I've been really hesitant to use sites such as Model Mayhem, as, from a first glance, seems to be mostly populated by a bunch or narcissistic women who love getting shot up full of massive amounts of digital files...

I've tried working with friends and the 8x10, and not only did they have trouble feeling awkward in front of such a beast, but they weren't used to the time consuming nature of LF.

I love shooting portraiture, and god knows I have managed to acquire a decent amount of gear for it , but I'm not sure how to go about finding someone to just do simple portrait / location portrait stuff with!

Help! Advice, ideas, suggestions!?
