Question about learning the figure...

Hi, over this summer I plan to learn the figure as best I can.

I know like going to the beach or train stations are good places to observe people standing still. But figures in general are still in short supply unless I hire model. So in the interim of these studies from life, would it be ok to draw from photos? I am just starting out, I know optimally from life is best, but would drawing from photos do more harm than good? or would they do just a little to help me? or is just as good as the real thing?

And also does anyone have any ideas about finding human figures to sketch?

thank you, and I look foward to learning from this forum in the upcoming months
