Glamour Modeling

Glamour modeling is modeling for photos with a sensual theme. These could be simple (so called) cheesecake or beefcake photos. They can include bikini, s*xy outfits and lingerie modeling. On the cheesecake level, photos can be used for calendars, posters, and other pin-up girl products. You can't pick up a car magazine without seeing a babe by the car or truck. As one moves to greater states of undress you move to the adult entertainment industry with high-end men's magazines like Playboy and then on the other end you start to move into straight skin magazines. And let's not forget the Internet that is now loaded with all levels of photos. When considering all parts of this side of modeling it is a very big industry and top glamour models can make as much as top fashion models. There are no height or size requirements as in fashion modeling. Where some circles in fashion modeling want you to look like a beanstalk, glamour modeling wants you to have curves like JLo. Where fashion may want a 'special beauty look', glamour modeling wants traditional drop dead gorgeous; where fashion really only happens in some places like New York, Paris, or eslewhere, glamour can happen anywhere....

You need to be over 18 to do glamour modeling even what they sometimes call cheesecake. With the way the laws are today a photographer runs a real risk doing any kind of s*xy photo with someone under 18. This does, however, open up the field for women in their 20's, 30's, 40's and we have begun seeing more good looking grandmothers in their 50's showing up.

This field is easy to get started in as there a lots of photographers who would love to do test shoots and photo assignments on spec. Getting into the high paying work can take as much effort as becoming a high fashion model, so be prepared to work hard and stay committed.
