We believe a picture can be worth a thousand words and we love to promote photographers who can capture the active lifestyle for our Bodies in Motion section. We do not charge for our resource and we are not able to pay for photography (although we think it's of tremendous value). We get contacted regularly from people looking for photographers and models to shoot in the Santa Barbara and Los Angeles area. We've gotten two inquires for referrals in the past week (as this is being written) and we always point them to those that have contributed. Email us a few samples and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!
