Glamour modeling in a nutshell, is modeling that is very sexual in nature or theme. While fashion modeling is about showcasing the clothes and commercial/print modeling is about showcasing a product, company or idea, glamour modeling is all about showcasing the model herself.
There is usually partial or full nudity. Playboy is one of the most famous publications that specialize in glamour photography but men's magazines are also noted for showcasing glamour models (Maxim, Smooth, KING, FHM).
Here are a few of the most noted glamour models:
Dita Von Teese
Carmen Electra (although she doesn't do it much anymore)
The definition and nature of glamour modeling has changed over the years, mainly because of morality issues within the public. Hugh Hefner is noted as being very influential in bringing glamour models into the public eye, most notably with the appearance of a nude Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Playboy.
Since then, glamour modeling in print has been somewhat toned down, and even men's magazines such as Maxim, FHM and KING are considered home to many glamour models.
There are always photographers who are looking for models to work with in this part of the industry and the pay can be extremely good. Of course, because there is a chance of nudity, this is something you must be prepared for. If you're shy, timid or not comfortable enough about your body, I suggest not going down this route.
