I would do some initial practice with people you know while pursuing something like Craigslist.
Looks like your advice is good advice because I've gone and joined all these modeling sites today, and each one of them requires that I have a portfolio before I get an opportunity to use their website :rolleyes: so.... its the chicken or the egg theory.

I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).
