please to donate photos that need restored?

I am starting up a restoration business site. By that so far I mean its basically a portfolio I havent really gotten my name out there too much not sure how. Luckilly this wasnt a project I intended on retiring on.
Long story short I would like to see if anyone wanted to donate any of THEIR pictures that needs restoration for me to be able to use as before and afters on the site.
I have been playing around with some old challeneges with some good results but either have no responses or cant find the owner of the picture and I dont feel right about using their picture as a BEFORE without their permission.

So again, just wantin to see if anyone wanted to donate some pictures they own and give me permission to use it for a before and after for my for profit site. Whatever credits you want mentioned are obviously fine. I hesitate to give the site (maybe another reason i get no business) but its so basic im not a huge fan of criticism with it lol, I know it needs work. But here it is anyway

Thanks again retouchers

Re: please to donate photos that need restored?

You are doing this all wrong. Have a contest in your community for photos that need to be restored. Require that people submit their images along with all of their contact info. Choose three impressive images the first month, then one a month after that (and do them for free). Set your rates high, then offer a 25% discount to anyone that applies. Now, you'll have a database of people who need work done, you've given them a discount, and you have your samples.

I swear I should teach a photography business class...: )

PS. Don't use words like "zit" on your website, use blemish. Also, your cloning work should not have repeating patterns on it.

Did you mean the challenge section. I would love to but I rather get permission from the users who uploaded them some are unreachable or unresponsive.
