Some Male Models, especially new comers to the modeling scene, are too quick to write off catalog work in my opinion. Catalog gigs can be a great way for male models to gain experience and build their portfolios. It’s not the most glamorous, and it’s not going to land you any six figure contracts, but your chances of landing a paid gig(s) with a national brand are much higher then you might think. Brands need models of all shapes, sizes, skin tones and styles. It’s good experience and good exposure for models who are just getting started.
