malefeet saidAfter reading this statement: "The average working male model makes around $30,000 to $40,000 a year. If a male model has an agent, the average salary is around $63,000. However, a male runway model can earn up to $8,000-$15,000 per day."
I'm wondering why it's not more of a full-time profession for most guys...
Because models are a dime a dozen.
Lots of guys want to do it, but few will make it a career.
#1 reason I've noticed for aspiring models to drop out: Self-esteem.
The agents, clients, photographers, etc. are not going to baby you along with compliments to make you feel good. They have a job to do. If your look fits the job, great...you got it. If not, it doesn't matter how good your friends say you look. It doesn't matter how many times you've been hotlisted. If your look ain't right for the client, then gtfo.
