|Questions About Glamour Modelling
You do not have to be tall to do this type of modelling. You should never go into this area of modelling unless it is your decision alone, never be influenced, persuaded, flattered or pushed into glamour Modelling - even if you are in love! Glamour modelling is no easier than any other area of modelling. You should be strong willed, clear about your intentions and have the strength of mind to say `NO' when you want to. As a glamour model you may get an awful lot of flack. You need to be sure of the areas of glamour work you wish to do. These can include swimwear, lingerie, topless and nude. We believe that you should have a good agent to look after you and you should not try to go it alone in the glamour industry. This is because the glamour industry unfortunately does attract the sleazy and exploitative type of person.
Glamour Modelling and Adult Entertainment
Could you be a successful glamour model?
There's lots of money to be earned in the adult entertainment industry, if you're not shy!
And the usual restrictions such as height don't apply, so it's a lot easier to get into than other forms of modelling.
Let's start with a few definitions and explanations:
Glamour usually describes photos that include elements of nudity or eroticism. So, be prepared to appear topless or to pose in erotic positions in underwear or lingerie.
Examples of glamour photography can be found in FHM and Maxim.
(If you aren't particularly outgoing and comfortable about being seen partly or fully naked, either in print or in the studio, you will not succeed in any of these areas.)
Nude modelling is much like glamour but can involve full nudity and more sexually explicit poses. The images in Playboy, Penthouse and Perfect 10 could be described as nude modelling or 'Soft Porn' images.
Adult entertainment describes the production of sexually explicit images and videos that involve both full nudity and in some cases the performance (or simulation) of sexual acts both alone and with other girls and boys.
The choice of work is entirely yours.
More money is offered for the 'higher' levels of work, but nobody would ever ask you to do work you didn't want to do.
There are over 600 monthly adult related magazines and over 750,000 monthly subscription adult web sites in the USA alone. They vary from playboy-like imagery to really explicit material.
To keep their subscribers happy, each one has to publish photos of new girls every month. They can't repeat old images too often and don't like to duplicate images from other magazines and web sites if they can avoid it.
At a conservative estimate, there is a demand for around 500,000 new young models every year to meet this apparently insatiable demand.
In particular, there is a huge demand for (and shortage of) pretty young models with natural looking breasts who are prepared to work in the adult entertainment industry.
How do I know if I'm suitable?
Let an agent decide that.
The usual restrictions such as height do not apply.
All shapes and sizes are working in the industry.
Don't just assume that you're not suitable before you've even applied!
Let us assess your photos, and if we think you're suitable we'll tell you!
What photos should I send?
We'll need to see a close-up photo of your face, and a full length swimwear or underwear picture.
Also, if you're interested in topless or nude work, then send photos topless image. There's no need to send a nude photo.
If you want to try and copy poses and clothing from Playboy that's fine, but not essential.
Most models use a digital camera with a tripod and a timer and then download the images to their PCs to send by email.
We'll also need a covering letter or email message with your full measurements and postal address and a bit about your hobbies and interests. You should also let us know what kinds of images and poses you are happy to create. Then send your images as jpeg attachments us via our contact page.
[Photos are the copyright of the photographer, which in most cases is the model or a friend or a member of the family. We honour copyright and will not reproduce an image without the written permission of the copyright holder.]
I have a very small size bust - Should I apply?
Yes. Definitely. Remember what we said : All shapes and sizes.
What will happen to my photos if I enquire?
Your photos will be treated as extremely private - We take this very seriously.
They'll be seen by no more than 2 professionals at Oskas in connection with the assessment.
If you don't want to take your application any further, the photos will be deleted immediately.
If you do want to take your application further, you will be asked before they are submitted to any other professional in the industry.
I'm worried my boyfriend will find out?
If you don't think someone you're close to will like it, either don't do it for now, or try to discuss it with them.
