Purestorm is another good source of models I have used from time to time for portfolio building. If you are just starting out I would advise working with an experienced model to help you rather than someone who has never modelled before.
Making money from any form of photography is very difficult these days and difficult to break into. It is often more about marketing than anything else.
As others have said - get a portfolio together and then get your images out there. If your portfolio is good you can try approaching model agencies to see about testing new models. Alternatively start getting together some tear sheets by working on advertising through contacts you already have - eg family businesses. People who comission photographers like to see that you are already doing the job so they have confidence you won't let them down. It's a little bit catch-22.
