Photographer to Models Tips: What Makes or Breaks a Model’s Success? PART 2: Physical Attraction

Disclaimer: I'm NOT a professional; these are my opinions and my opinions only and based on my own experiences in model photography. I am NOT a professional writer, these written format pieces are meant for purely and primarily shared knowledge from my experiences as a model photographer. It is not my intent to have a perfectly written article, if you don't like my writing please report this article to the nearest college to make corrects (or yourselves) and send those corrections at and I'll make those changes if they do not interfere with the content. My focus is to give the content as soon as possible by any means instead of not giving the content at all (tips). Again I am not a great writer but I get my points across. The following tips are NOT meant for everyone for every situation, take the tips that you know that would work for YOU and anyway you choose. This is only a guide of tips, not strict rules that every or all persons should follow, these tips are meant for serious, business aware and pro-efficient people.

Photographer to Models Tips: What Makes or Breaks a Model’s Success? PART 2: Physical Attraction

The importance of a model’s physical attraction all depends on the market you are in, the size of that market, and how much competition you have within that market. As well it would depend on your own goals or/and types of modeling for your modeling career, such as if you want to be a runway model which requires specific height and weight at all times when doing runway. As I have mentioned in the “Portfolio Building” article that talks more about types of modeling.

Once you have figured out a specific set market, study that market and shape yourself to what is on high demand and of course doing something you love to do in modeling as I mentioned in my other article.

You don’t need to be very tall, skinny, or young, but those top 3 qualities help to be in the prime markets that are on high demand. However there are many niche markets that are as well on high demand that are always looking for other types of models. The modeling world does not discriminate size, color, race, religion, weight, height, or age. And that may sound shockingly untrue or hard to believe and I understand it is hard to believe but since the prime markets take up most of the work in the modeling world it only looks like that those types of models are the only people that can be models… NOT TRUE! You can be ANY age, size, color, race, religion, weight, and height in order to become a model, especially in the freelance modeling world.
