Spend a day on here, go through the Recent Images and when you see a picture of the style you like, look who took it. If it is a model, you can usually see who took it, either by a link on the picture or seeing who she has recently worked with. By looking at the photographer's portfolio, you can usually see if they have been published.
Once you have found a few photographers producing what you like, contact them, asking or even begging for a shoot, you can offer TF or syndication, but be sure if you do syndication, that you have a signed agreement saying you will be paid if any of the pictures sell. Most photographers find it hard turning down a pretty face and a nice body.
You might get a knock-back or two, but that's life, just move on to the next one.

Also, do a photographer search, the paid members will come up first and generally speaking, the ones most suited to what you are looking for will be paid members.

It is also the case that those who have had their images published, already have contact with someone who gets them published, be that an agent or someone working at the publication. There are lots of photographers on here producing pictures far better than you might see in the rags, but they either don't bother or can't get to someone that matters.

And before you do - make sure you read their profile so you know the way they work.  Makinhg clear that you have done this is a good idea - as is referring to the images you like so they don't think you have just spammed the whole world!
Amateur - happy to do TF with models with potential and enthusiasm. Website: www.mphodson.co.uk

Excellent point, there is nothing worse than getting a message you know has been copied and pasted to every Tom, Dick and Harry.

Pay a damn good photographer to give you a handful of stunning images.
This in turn will attract the better photographers.

I just had a look at your shots, and they all have that "Sunday Sport" look.

Perhaps a change of image?
