What are some differentiating factors for male and female models when it comes to deciding who a photographer shoots?
In other words, what are the main differences in male and female modeling?
Additionally, what are some good tips you can give to an unexperienced aspiring male model (me) on stepping foot into the industry?
I am highly motivated, but I am also brand new so I haven't yet got the feel for what type of modeling I would do best at. Where do you guys think you could possibly see me modeling? smile

I would possibly think about posting in the "Newbie" forum too, they're good with the beginner tips over there. You could also post in "Critique" if you want specific comments on your look, but brace yourself lol.

It is as easy as one, two, three . . . .

1 - Practice various facial expressions.

2 - Look at portfolios of other male models.

3 - Find a GOOD photographer to work with (he or she will help guide you).

But just one worthless opinion.   smile

Different facial expressions... yes. Too many male models cultivate a sucked in cheeks. I have a devil of a time getting moodels to crack a genuine smile.

My advice is work with a variety of photographers TF if possible pay one if necessary.
Good luck.

Thank you both for your advice. I will make sure to perfect my facial expressions and get a feel for what type of modeling I fit best for!
