This is a friend of mine who'd like to get into male modeling
Yes the photo is TERRIBLE! no need to tell me, but if he worked with good photographers do you think he has a shot (not a super star or anything)

What are his stat's

Agencies are looking for 6'0" 145lbs, 30" waist, toned physique, editorial facial features (high cheekbones, sharp jaw line) and a strong fashion repertoire...

lacking any of the aforementioned will seriously limit a male's ability to get signed...

not wanting to do fashion?  no problem fitness is a viable alternative... just add 30lbs of hard toned muscle to the above equation...

all the best on his journey...

So you posted a terrible, not full body photo of a person asking if he's got a shot.


Um.... maybe?

Can't say from this photo and lack of stats, but the first thing to tell him is no more crappie tats across the top of his chest for any mainstream llamaing.

I don't know all his stats, but I can ask him to make an MM account.

And on top of 'looks' modelling ability also plays a big part. Personally, I'd rather shoot someone who isn't quite as good looking as the next person, but gives me a lot to work with in terms of posing and committing to the shoot.

For example, Coco Rocha is amazingly gorgeous but what makes her even more awesome by all accounts is her ability to pose.

Really Katzen? Are you serious? You aren't doing this guy any favors by only posting one image of him, with no stats, no anything, other than 1/5 of an image....and then asking if he has potential....think about what you are doing before you post an unanswerable question like that. He deserves more and the MM readers deserve more.
