Hi all,

I'm involved in the creation of a website designed to help men
understand how to meet and attract beautiful women.  On this website
we would like to add pictures of female models, but are not sure
exactly how to find and purchase the rights to such pictures online. 
So, the question is, how do we do such?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

quadranined-ga,


Here are two sources that should get you what you're looking for.


The first has photos available at no charge, under a Creative Commons license:



http://www.everystockphoto.com/

...everystockphoto.com is a search engine for creative commons photos


Clickon the link (left hand side of page) for "woman" and you'll get
thousands of photos:


http://www.everystockphoto.com/results.php?seed=woman


such as this one:


http://www.everystockphoto.com/photo.php?photo_id=9038


which is available for free under an Attribution License, which
essentially means you have to give credit to the photographer:


http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/


===============


Another useful site (with, in my opinion, a larger number of
professional-quality photos to choose from) is:


http://www.istockphoto.com/index.php
...iStockphotoŽ is the world's preeminent collection of
member-generated royalty-free images, at the world's best prices.


The photos are only a few bucks a pop, depending on how large of a
file you want.  For web site use, the small and medium files are
generally sufficient.  Search on [ woman ] to see what's available
here.


These two sites should do the trick, but if you need anything else,
just let me know by posting a Request for Clarification.


Cheers, and good luck with your new site.

Can't you just meet and attract a beautiful woman and take her
picture? Releases can be found online at photography wensites.


Or run this by an attorney for use in your state or country:

In exchange for consideration received, I expressly give permission to
__________ to use my photographic image in all forms for advertising,
trade, and any other lawful purposes in any medium.

Markvmd,

I like your sense of humor.  Thanks for the suggestions.  I will comb
through some photography sites and see what I can find.
