Female Fashion Models are usually between 5’8’’ and 6’1’’ and males are usually 5’10’’ to 6’2’’. These models can be seen in clothing catalogs. These models do not need to be as thin as a fashion model as they are meant to be more relatable to those looking through the catalogue. They do need to be fit and toned, however.

Promotional Models can also be used at trade shows and conventions. When working a trade show or convention the model may be asked to learn some talking points for the company or brand that they are representing.
CATALOG MODEL: A Catalog Model is very similar to a “Fashion Catalog Model” except they do not need to meet the same strict requirements when it comes to physical fitness and height.

PINUP MODEL: Pinup Models get their name from the 1940’s models whose pictures were meant to be “pinned up” on the wall. Their photos are widely produced. These models will find work in magazines, newspapers, and Internet. They typically are still dressed in the 1940’s clothing style. There are no specific height or weight requirements for these positions.
ALT MODEL, or ALTERNATIVE MODEL: Alternative Models are those who are outside of the typically “model standards”. Many of these artists have tattoos, non-mainstream hairstyles, and varying heights and weights. These models do not necessarily conform to mainstream ideals of beauty. They often represent subcultures such as “Goth”, for example.

These models are responsible for finding their own work and do not have to pay any kind of commission when they do so.
