Make Fitness Modeling Audition Photos Simple

How to create simple, snapshot-style photos for male modeling auditions

Guys do not need to submit professional male modeling photos to audition for fitness modeling.

Well-lit digital snapshots your roommate or friend shoots for you after lifting weights is fine for for most needs.

Most guys lose sight of what casting directors and decision makers want: to see what a potential male fitness model who lives thousands of miles away really looks like.

Here is the point: they do not care about what your fireplace, or sofa, or bedroom posters look like. They want to clearly see your body. Some guys make a big production of audition photos, taking time to create "nice photos" with a good settings. Well, the more of your living rom you include, the less of your body is viewable to the person who makes decisions.

Here are some tips for creating audition photos:

We do not care where the photos are taken. Outdoors or indoors is fine. The background is unimportant! The more you include of the room, the less we see of your body.

The person shooting the photos should stand close enough to you so not much background is visible in the picture. We want to see you -- not your living room!

Turn on every light in the room. The more light the better. Shadows and darkness is bad.
