There are many opportunities for male models within the modelling industry. The secret is knowing what type of male modelling you are suitable for.
If you're reading this and thinking 'perhaps its worth a try', start by doing some research on the different types of male modelling. The Model Factory can help you find which one is right for you and offer guidance on the steps involved from day one to your first job. Commercial modelling, fitness modelling, fashion, alternative, body parts; each has different physical requirements and portfolio requirements that decision makers look for. You have to tick all the boxes before you have a chance of getting the top paying jobs.
The stereotypical male model is much like the one photographed above. This isn't the standard for all models by any means. Every client has a different product, a different identity, and a different aim. Each one needs a different face and body.

Aspiring male models should already be comfortable with cameras, whether its on a night out or at a corporate event. If you are not, then make every possible effort to get comfortable by always looking your best and trying out a local photographer's studio for a test shoot or portfolio shots. This will give you a taste of what might be to come should you pursue a path in modelling.
