My "older" models are beautiful sexy women who have wonderful personalities.. They always deliver quality special images for me and my clients love them! My 'oldest' model is sixty one, I just love her work.

It took me until my early 30's to finally delve into my creative side and I haven't looked back. smile

I will soon be 50, and quite proud of that fact.  Are some poses a little harder?  Yes...LOL.  But I love it.

I'm 36 & just started building my portfolio at 35. My age made me NOT want to try modeling but I look in magazines & on commercials & see that there is plenty of work for over 30 models. Hopefully I can get some of it lol

My wife will be 40 in six months. Though she doesn't model often. Which is good because while she is my muse, she's the biggest flake you could ever imagine. Getting her in front of my camera is like pulling teeth. Heh.

I am 49 so I am an older model.  I have seen some very inspiring older models here on MM that I have a list of them to keep me motivated.

I have a shoot coming up in less than two weeks with a MM model in her 40's.  I had a casting call for "Elegance at a Scenic Waterfall" which will be a paid shoot.  I had many interested the vast majority of which were in their late teens or early-mid 20's and all were quite beautiful.  The older model is no less beautiful IMO but she got the assignment and I am looking forward to working with her.  I chose her not only for her look but also for her experience and my communications with her let me know that not only was she greatly interested in the assignment but that she possessed a professional attitude towards her work.  So, my advice to the younger models interested in a casting call is to be more communicative rather than just saying, "I'm interested."  The ability to communicate is what really got this model the job as beauty and looks were equal across the board.

Not nearly enough older models in my area. I appreciate the maturity and lack of drama they bring to a shoot.

If "30" is the standard for an old model, I guess I'm almost there

I'm a 40+ model who's just getting back into the game. I'm updating my book and doing TF shoots at the moment.

Anyone in my area want to shoot?

I remember reading a forum post a while back from a photographer who lamented while most models on MM are still 18-23, we photographers just keep getting older. lol

I know of a few models on here who are over 60, and I've shot with several who are over 30; three or four who are 40+.

I think some photographers like working with mature models because they are mature. There are stories of young flakey models who aren't professional etc.

For me i prefer to work with models like myself (ummm I'm also learning photographer ),
Older (35+), normal sized (ie size 10-16). Partly I think it's easier to make the connection with who you are working with.

Age is just a number..............  It is a pity search-options are mostly about age.  I think it should be a lot more about looks/types/genres/style/experience etc. etc.
