You can check out some recent stuff on our Facebook fan page:
We're based in Brandon but are over in Lakeland a few times week.
Even if I'm not a good fit, I can recommend several other good photographers who are based in the Lakeland area.
I would also encourage you to check out the Lakeland Shooters photography club. We have regular meets and are often in need of models - sometimes there are themed shoots that need models in costume, sometimes they're glam/fashion, sometimes simple street clothes. It's fun, low pressure, and you get some experience in front of the camera.
There's a meet on Sunday but I'll be at MegaCon instead.
