Man Fashion: Are you Interested In Modeling?

4:06 pm Contributed by JW

Just came across an interesting article about modeling over-50 category. Have you ever think about modeling when you are at the age of 50? The article proved it right that after you retired, you will probably get bored easily. So why not start to look for supplement income and maybe with a little fun too? You don’t need to be supermodel material to make money at modeling.

Have you even see those supermodel appeared in the arthritis medicine advertisement? Very unlikely. Most mature men and women don’t even consider starting a modeling career at this age. Many assume they missed the boat while they raised families and pursued other careers. The over-50 category has less competition than other areas of modeling, and the opportunities will continue to grow.

Models over 50 can be seen in TV commercials, print ads, catalogs, hair shows, stock photography and runway shows as well as appearing as Spokes models.

Some requirements for male Fashion models are 5' 11" - 6' 2" and wear a size 40 Regular to 42 Long suit. Men should be toned and well proportioned. Overly muscular builds do not properly fit the clothing. Clear skin and good teeth are required. There is a wide variety of acceptable looks. A man's fashion modeling career often lasts longer than a woman’s.

If you are interested in modeling, why not start to submit a note to the agencies state your interest. Your note should furnish as much information as possible such as contain your name, city and state of residence, cell phone number, height, clothing size and shoe size. I think is also ideal to include one close up photo of your face (smiling) and one full body shot showing your shape (in a swimsuit, leotard or well fitting clothing). Here are some of the well known modeling agencies: Wilhelmina, Ford, Gilla Roos and Cunningham Escott Slevin & Doherty

Be proud of your maturity. Don’t try to look too young, and never feel like you need to dress like a teenager. Mature models can do the same type of modeling as their younger counterparts.
