Answering a Reader Question #122
i love it im defenitly fitted to become a high fashion famous male model(: whats the age range in the male model industry??
Hey, Anonymous! The good news for you is that male models tend to have much more longevity in their careers, compared to female models. In most cases (not all), male models start around age 16-18 and can stretch their career well into their 30s and 40s or beyond. What's interesting is that most male models tend to be in demand as they get older...it's just something about the way men age that makes them more appealing as the years go by. This gives them flexibility and diversity in the types of work they can book, from print work to editorial and runway. Female models, on the other hand, are in their modeling "prime" between 14-21 (I am referring to female models in the high fashion, runway and editorial fields and am not addressing the commercial/print, lifestyle and mature modeling categories).
So as long as you take care of your complexion, body and remain healthy overall, you can stand to have a prosperous modeling career in the years to come...and in your case, I hope that is the end result for you!
