    I would guess that your big broad build will work against you if you want to be a model mate.

    Do you have a good looking symetrical face?

    Ideal build for a model is tall and slim. For a Men's Health or underwear model you take the tall slim model and add some weight training.

    First thing I'd do if I were you is lose a good 7 or 8% bodyfat and then re-assess. One thing that all models have in common is that they are lean.

    Anyone could get the type of body easy enough with some real dedication, the most important question is.... Are you pretty?

    Well front page would take a while. IME the people come to you but you do need to come up with a proper porfolio and things like that if you're going to send them the pics.
    You have to have the look they want and all that.

    You can probably google 'how to become a model' and get information tbh. Worth a try lol.

    Yeah it is photos.

    They normally do headshots body shots, swim stuff, shorts, tops etc etc. And suits it all depends really.

    I think Nicky on Muscletalk used to do something to do with models, not sure if that's still around as I was on a hiatus for a while...

    Well it's the different shots that you need to sort out, comp cards and your vital stats on the back and stuff. I'm guessing it would be the same for a guy lol...

    They don't like missing information or having things done differently to standard procedures type thing lol.

    There are a lot of scams out there though so take it ease.

    Where should you start for fixing your body type thing?

    Well depends on the look you think you'd be wanted for. There's all kinds of models wanted you know. Well..front page is pretty specific tbh but that might take a while to get to.....

    Well...sort out your diet and training firstly...

    At the same time look into the market and get a bit more clued up on what will be expected of you and stuff. You can get certain photographers to sort of use you for a practice shoot. Might be difficult to find, don't know how it is in your area. Basically exchange services..he takes your pics (you probably won't get the originals) and both of you get to 'have' them in your portfolio. Thing is..if they're amateurs...like you..quality might not be so good..so meh. Up to you. See what you can find and see how you do in front of the camera and stuff.

    Where mate?

    I've never seen a very big built model to be honest.

    But.... By model I mean underwear models, swimwear models, fashion models, men's health type magazine models, that kind of thing.

    You also get bodybuilding models like that guy Sagli Kalev who BritBB has posted a lot of pics of. But in all honesty there are not very many of those guys around as there's not much call for them compared to fashion/ magazine/ billboard type models.

    Watch Fashion TV for some ideas of what models look like, it's on Sky. They sometimes have specials on male models who do nude shoots etc for women's calendars and so on. These guys are a lot more muscular than catwalk models but they are still tall, light built guys, who work out a lot. I am straight by the way, I just find these things interesting lol.

    Or maybe ShK can chime in, I think he wants to be a model too.
