 I see lots of models put on their profiles that they do this, but what does it mean to you?

I read it as meaning they offer an alternative to the tall / slim / beautiful / unmodified people that most of society would describe as being model material.

They are not commercial material; may you read into that what you wish.

At its best:

Normally though its some random girl who has tattoos, piercings or an unusual hairstyle and doesn't strike you as someone suited to art nude, glamour, fashion or beauty


If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

they think they are different, but generally they aren't.

Just put 'one' as my main image.....alt models can often make for interesting shoots and they are (in my experience) interesting and pleasant company...but often with a traumatic past.

A couple of years back I photographed an alt model that would have been drop dead gorgeous...had it not been for the tattoos, piercings, and self inflicted scars...but despite that...still a pleasure to photograph and chat to and sad as well....

Alternative is a state of mind nothing to do with how you dress what music u listen to or how many tattoos you do or don't have... Alternative minded models are usually nicer people and up for anything abit out of the ordinary yes we do tend to shave our hair have dreadlocks or piercings it's who we are not something u can just decide to do. That's like a bleach blonde haired fake boobed glamour model with a vagina piercing saying oh I'd love to do a alt shoot but what do I need to dress like? Lol no what I'm trying to say.

are you saying that:

bleach blonde people
fake boobed people (of which most ive met are alt)
and
glamor models...


... are stupid bimbos?

because as falling into 2 out of 3 of them thats quite offensive and im very much alt in my mind set and life thank you

too be fair most of the worst alt shots ive seen are of 'alt' people (usually a size 20 goth girl in a grave yard with fishnets, fairie wings and black lipstick posing with a guitar she clearly cant play) and yet ive seen many that fit you above description that are amazing alt models
