Become a Male Model

How to become a Male Model

Having the perfect male model ‘look’ is not enough when it comes to breaking in to the industry. You need to be confident and capable in front of the camera, be relaxed working with strangers and have a great personality. Keep in mind that if a client likes working with you, you could be guaranteeing yourself work from them for years to come.

There are more and more opportunities springing up in the male modelling industry and as such, a great way to take your first steps is by pinpointing what type of modelling you are suited to. From commercial and editorial, to health and fitness, sports and underwear, plus all the sub categories within each of those areas.

As a male model, you must take good care of yourself; look after your health, your skin, your hair and your body. Eat well, take up a gym membership, drink plenty of water and get used to spending a little more time on your overall health and well being. Plus look after and practice that smile!

The founder of The Model Experience, Matt Bates, is himself, an international male model and as such, knows exactly what the industry experts are looking for in up and coming talent. By booking a 1-2-1 portfolio shoot with Matt, you will not only be fulfilling the important job of creating your portfolio or keeping your current one up to date, you will also be given invaluable advice from his 2+ decades in the industry. After your shoot, you will be brimming with the exact confidence and skills required to start pursuing your career as a male model and it will be the ideal time to start contacting local agencies for representation. Although The Model Experience is not an agency, Matt offers his 1-2-1 clients the free added service of sending portfolio to some of the best UK modelling agencies with whom he has close professional contacts. These agencies receive hundreds of portfolio’s a week, but if they receive one from Matt you can guarantee that your images will be seen by them.

Alternatively, you can simply book on to a Model Masterclass to test the waters and see if male modelling is something you would like to pursue before booking your portfolio shoot.

Before making any decisions regarding booking your masterclass or shoot, why not take a look at the hundreds reviews and video testimonials The Model Experience has received over the years.


Keep in mind that although there are many glamorous elements to modelling, plus of course the potential for financial gain, it is hard work and a full-time job and therefore only right for those who are truly dedicated to their career
