Male Modeling Agencies
How to Get Scouted® by a Male Model Agency
When we think of male models we often think about handsome men modeling Armani suits in the top magazines such as GQ, Esquire, Details and Men’s Vogue. However, there are many types of male models in addition to editorial (high fashion) models. Male models can work as runway models, fit and showroom models, commercial models, fitness models, and specialty models such as hand, feet and parts models.

Generally, high fashion or editorial male models who are 5′ 10″ and up and wear a 38 – 40 jacket. There are however, exceptions to every rule<, such as 5′ 7″ Aaron Frew who was signed to top editorial modeling agency d’Management in Milan, Italy, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t meet these height or size guidelines.
Commercial male models come in all heights, shapes and sizes so there are tremendous opportunities for male models in the commercial market. Commercial models are seen everywhere in print and television ads for cereals and food products, soaps and bath products, furniture and car ads, and the like. The list is endless. Anything that isn’t high fashion a commercial model can do.
