Modeling, a field dominated by females is now suddenly being explored by men a lot. A decade back you couldn’t see many men choosing to be male physique models as their way of earning bread and butter, but now suddenly male models are giving tough competition to the female models. Choosing this profession requires a lot of disciplines like spending routine time in the gyms, having to follow a proper diet and whatnot. Not many think it to be a very respectable work to do especially for men, but what matters is the amount of professionalism you bring to your work.
Types Of Male Physique Models
1. Editorial Models:
Editorial models are used as covers in magazines. These kinds of models are more revealing and give a statement with their looks as well. These models are said to have a sample size i.e 32’’ waist, 15.5’’ neck, and a 42’’ jacket. But in the end, it’s all about your attitude. Their payments vary from 200 dollars to 1000 dollars per day depending on the publication with which they are working
2. Catwalk Models:
Catwalk models wear designer clothes for each season’s run in various big cities. The height of these models varies from 6 feet to 6’3’’ feet. Though the stature of a model depends on the needs of the casters or the brand. These kinds of models need to be cast about 10-15 times a day, all without getting any contract. The most important thing to be a catwalk model is knowing to walk on a runway.
3. Commercial Model:
Being a commercial model is the best way to start off your model career. Commercial modeling tends to cover a wide spectrum of non-catwalk work for almost every specific brand. This type of modeling doesn’t have many criteria, you only need to be taller than 5’10’’.
4. Plus-Size Models
Plus-size models were once considered to be an abstruse part of modeling, and are now getting into the groove of modeling again. These models don’t exactly match the dimensions of a proper model. But now, the demand for plus-size models is on the up.
5. Fitness Models:
Fitness models are generally self-employed, as they have their own diets and routines to follow rather than following what a brand wants them to follow. Not many brands want a hulk-like model for their magazines. Whereas non-modeling fitness enthusiasts build muscle for various reasons like strength, mass, and functionality, but fitness models must build it for aesthetics, which requires a specific kind of training.
6. Part Models:
Parts model is one of the most unusual things you could see in your life. They don’t get paid for their stature or personality, but instead for their parts of the body.
