Hey,
I have been on this site a while but not used it in a couple years. Thinking about trying again. Can any one give me any tips on how to improve my profile or get noticed without spending lots of money on getting a pro portfolio done?
Thanks.

Send the gorgeous Joe Hicks a PM...he sounds a nice guy...so maybe he could offer a few tips and guidelines for you on the fine art of male modelling.

I think you have a good, marketable look...you just need some good photographers to shoot with...you could try placing a casting on this site for starters.

You can spell too...which is great plus...blush

As Suzi says, put up a casting.
Also have a look to see if there's any other male models in the area, and see who they've had good images from.
Have a look at the events page and see if there is a network meet in your area.
You should be able to get work from there.

As far as I know there's not as many male models on here as female so that could help you start id start by posting castings and asking local photographers who's portfolio you like for tf / collaborations shoots to build your portfolio up x

Hey there,

Have a browse at the other male model profiles and have a look at who they have shot with. Take a look at their pics as well. It will give you some ideas that you can bring to your future shoots. It's also a good way to look at the angles and lighting as well. Practice your poses in front of a mirror. That way you will learn which side works for you. It's all about expression and poise. Hope this helps in some small way and good luck. You need a thick skin and be determined in this business but most of all have fun..

Helen.
