Glamour models do not need to be tall or thin, instead it helps to be shapely and curvaceous. Some companies still use glamour and fashion models for promoting their company through calendars and marketing campaigns.
Magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse are world-famous and many glamour models who have appeared in such magazines have become famous celebrities in their own right. Glamour Modelling is one of the only kinds of modelling that is not used to promote a product or service.
The main aim of glamour modelling is to advertise the model herself and sell the images of her. This is an area of the industry which is generally easier to break into, most commonly as a lingerie model, swimwear model.
Glamour photography is a genre of photography in which the subjects, usually female, are portrayed in erotic or exciting ways ranging from fully clothed to nude but in ways that either may conceal or may otherwise not especially draw attention to the subjects’ body shapes.
Glamour photography is generally a composed image of a subject in a still position. The subjects of “glamour” photography for professional use are often professional models, and the photographs are normally intended for commercial use, including mass-produced calendars, pinups and men’s magazines such as Maxim; but amateur subjects are also sometimes used, and sometimes the photographs are intended for private and personal use only. Photographers use a combination of cosmetics, lighting and airbrushing techniques to produce an appealing image of the subject.
