You want to be a model? We are looking for male models with character and charm. Our top priority: changeability. But what are the requirements? It is important to us that our female and male models feel comfortable in their bodies, because a healthy self-confidence is reflected in their charisma. Only those who live the job with joy and conviction can call up a corresponding performance. Self-confidence, reliability and the ability to easily slip into different roles are three important skills to assert yourself in the modeling industry. Our customers pay attention to an expressive face, convincing looks, a good posture and coordination. Our CM Models team takes care of our models with intensive management and prepares them for jobs in a goal-oriented manner.
How do I become a male model? Successful modeling as a man!
Prerequisites as Model and Male Model: Character Strength, Fitness and Courage
Self-confidence, reliability and the ability to easily slip into different roles are three important skills to assert yourself in the modeling industry. Our customers are looking for an expressive face, convincing looks, good posture and coordination. Our CM Models team takes care of our models with intensive management and prepares them for jobs in a goal-oriented manner: From fitting models for designers to fashion shows and photo shoots.
But first of all you have to actively decide for yourself to become a model. Because especially at the beginning it is a lot of work, e.g. building up your model portfolio, which also means that you have to have a lot of patience, because nobody becomes a star overnight.
International male model: Chand visiting Germany
In our new little Model Doku we accompanied Chand three days in Germany. Together with Oliver Rudolph Chand shoots for trueprodigy. The brand sells in over 35 countries! So that the looks in the new lookbook, the shop and the store elements are also right, the Chand label flew in from Stockholm. We accompanied Chand backstage, in the hotel, in the gym but also at breakfast. A little insight for New Faces!
The customer – what are the agencies and designers looking at?
It is particularly important to the designers that their collections are presented by models that give the end consumer that certain “feeling”. A targeted choice of model is therefore decisive for the statistically growing sales figures. This shows how important it is for a model to develop a certain individuality, in short: uniqueness pays off. This ability is innate, but can be additionally trained. We support our female and male models in this way, continue to pursue classic chic and underline their uniqueness.

What does a man model have to know?
A sympathetic charisma is the be-all and end-all in the model business. A nice smile is also more important for male models than the washboard stomach. Solarium tanned skin is an absolute No Go! A big advantage of male models: They can work longer in the model business than female models. On the other hand, they are paid less than women.
Check list for male models:
- Changeability: You must also be able to look younger than you actually are. In Germany, male types are more in demand, but “young boys” are particularly successful abroad, especially in France or Italy.
- Optimum starting age: between 16 and 18 years of age
- Development ability: You need to develop a sense of styling and your ability to perform properly constantly
- Under 1,80 male models have hardly a chance, because they are not versatile applicable
- Sporty physique is good
- Striking facial features
- On application photos: type of man must be recognizable, a smile is advantageous
