They seem to be doing great and earning good money doing what they love. Perhaps you can do the same. But how did these people get into the male modeling industry in the first place? Here are some useful tips from Latitude Talent Studios.
Tip 1: Work on your looks and physical attributes. The first thing you should be looking at, is to work on your physical qualities. There are many different types of male models and if you look a little deeper, you will discover that there are hand models, leg models, and even finger models. The type of model you want to become should depend on what you already have. For instance, if you have great overall looks, you can focus on building up your physique so that you look more photogenic in front of cameras.
Tip 2: Build a strong portfolio. The first assignments will be the most difficult to come by. Be patient. Take some sample shots of yourself on your own at a good photo studio. Remember to include a variety of shots to show your dexterity. When you show them to agencies, they will have an easier time assigning work to you. That helps to increase the chances of building up your port folio. In the beginning, try not to be choosy. Of course, you must be mindful of any assignments that may affect your image adversely. Pick assignments that will allow you to showcase your strengths. Your main aim here is to build up a strong port folio. The good money will come later.
Tip 3: Work with reputable agencies. Once you have gotten some valuable modeling experience to back you up, you should have the confidence to try and get the bigger assignments. Before doing so, take some time to look at some of the top male models in the industry. What are some attributes that they possess? Do you think you possess similar attributes? In other words, you are trying to determine if you have what it takes to take on top modeling assignments.
These assignments are usually in the hands of a few reputable modeling agencies. Your goal is to build up a relationship with them. Do your best whenever you have new assignments. Impress the clients as much as you can by being at the top of your game. When agencies notice that you are good with clients and can perform well, they will trust you with bigger and better projects. Remember that trust is of utmost importance. So always behave in a professional manner when dealing with agencies and clients.
The male modeling industry is a competitive industry. But for the right candidate, it can also provide loads of fun as well as a lucrative income. Once you get your foot in the door, consistent effort, hard work and patience will take you all the way to the top.

Are you looking to become a model in New York City and looking for a place to live? Do you want to know where models live in NYC?
Housing alone is New York City is hard to find for anyone, let alone models. Here are a few tips for male and female models looking for housing in NYC!
Tip 1 – The NYC Model Apartment
Typically, larger modeling agencies house new face models, especially those traveling from overseas, in model apartments.
A model apartment is just a normal apartment, typically two or three bedrooms where models live while attending castings and go-see’s.
While they are not for extended living, a normal apartment can have up to six people, or even more living in a small space.
Models can expect to pay around $1,000 or even more per month for these “model apartments”. While some agencies may front this cost at the beginning of your career, like any other industry, this investment is your responsibility and is not something that is covered for free!
Tip 2 – Look outside of Manhattan for affordable deals
New York City is one of the most expensive places in the world to live. For most models, a typically one bedroom apartment (which is around $3,000 per month in Manhattan) is over their budget. Brooklyn, Queens and even New Jersey have more affordable deals for models and can be a great alternative when looking to relocate to New York.
