Glamour Modelling is one of the only kinds of modelling that is not used to promote a product or service. The main aim of glamour modelling is to advertise the model herself and sell the images of her. This is an area of the industry which is generally easier to break into, most commonly as a lingerie model, swimwear model, or a Page 3 model.
Glamour models do not need to be tall or thin; instead it helps to be shapely and curvaceous. Some companies still use glamour and fashion models for promoting their company through calendars and marketing campaigns. Magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse are world-famous and many glamour models who have appeared in such magazines have become famous celebrities in their own right.
However, most glamour models end up on the internet modelling on websites, live webcam or streaming videos as there is a huge demand for glamour models in this segment. Hourly rates for glamour modelling are often higher than other types of modelling.
The field of glamour modelling is more accessible than others, and there are many photographers who do test shoots for glamour models. However, beware of seedy photographers and agents in this field. Make sure you check them out first before you sign on to do anything.
Always be comfortable and in control, and if you are unsure, take someone along with you. Getting into the high-paying glamour modelling work can take as much effort as becoming a high fashion model.
In the UK, you have to be over the age of 18 to pursue glamour modelling by yourself.
