Is there actually any photographers out there who want to shoot models with clothes on?!

If you want to get a paid job without taking your clothes off you have to be very beautiful/ unique and have an amazing body. There is a big competition out there, have you seen other models and how they look like? How much experience they have? How much do they have to offer? These are the things worth considering...

Well I have put a casting up looking for swimwear models, does that count as clothed?

Having recently placed a clothed paid casting here, I was pretty much underwhelmed by the response, mainly from models who work to adult level too. Have since cast elsewhere with 110 applicants, most of whom seem to have actually read beyond the 'paid' bit. Horses for courses then.

Dear Charley ! I you would like to be just fashion model and keep your clothes on,you must be minimum 175 cm of high ,90-60-90 or less(at least for France and Italy ) and started at age 13-14!
Any way ,you can also update your profile on MM,they have more fashion castings .

Good luck !

I do photography as well as modelling, I model nude mostly, but I only photograph clothed models! I love shooting fashion.

My favourite shoots have been totally what i would call a "collaboration" between photographer and model (whether pro or amateur, doesnt matter to me) and have started off with simple headshots/body shots with no make up, T shirt/jeans (loads of people actually like that casual look) then moving onto using make up and wearing the different fashions that you bring with you then rounding off with Fine Art nudes. It takes the whole day and both photogrpher, model, MUA and studio owner works very hard, and the results bring a smile to everyones face. the photographers i am meeting want lots of "variety on a single shoot. They dont just want a port full of fashion or a port full of nudes. And since many people dont have the budget or time off to book studios every month, it makes sense to bash out all these different things in a single day. Most of my friends on here shoot mainly clothed fashion. They are mature also. And before anyone says that they would pay us to keep our clothes on...fashion is more than just being a pretty face or a 6 ft size zero..o.k. so it IS for the catwalk, but modelling on here isnt for London Fashion Week!

I shoot quite a lot of fashion and beauty, but mostly TF! For all the reasons mentioned, it needs something extra being brought to the table, and this is tough to pull off with a small or non existent budget!

Funnily enough, I did a great shoo with Finn Aricci at Mansion Photo Studios, not a million miles from you, ans she looked stunning in evening wear, some of which I provided and some of which she brought with her.

I did a fitness/boxing shoot with Finn Aricci and she looks stunning in just her gym clothes. Actually she was wearing her own gym clothes so that would be classed as photography with clothes on.cheeky

I don't mind models who do glamour/nude shoots etc, but I prefer just to do fashion and shoots not showing everything that I have got, but photographers don't seem to want that now a days.. Is it just me who's noticing this? I've put a post out that I'm a model looking for paid work, but the fact I don't do nude, I am getting no where! is it not about facial looks any more?
Yes it is about facial looks. You will get the work if you have the look. Simples.

Yes, however it has been a little difficult. I suppose that many photographers in general are interested in nudes. Over the centuries, there has been an artistic fascination in the naked human body (just walk into an art gallery and you'll see what I mean!), so I suppose that explains why a lot of them show an interest.

Most of the photographers I've worked with/will work with do have sections of their profile dedicated to nude, but they are still happy to work with clothed models.

At worst, there are multiple modelling websites, you could try there as well?

Best of luck xxx

Not only that but nude models tend to be much more experienced so are often preferred for non-nude work as well.

Having said that there are one or two busy clothed-only models around.

It's not just experience... models who pose to higher levels are typically more confident and have less inhibitions and thus makes them easier to work with.

Nothing worse than working with a model who looks nervous, or on occasion you may shoot something which is borderline for the model's levels and this can affect the dynamic between both model and photographer. As a rule of thumb, I think it's safer to book a model for one level higher than what they're doing to save embarrassment when that situation occurs (eg. book lingerie if shooting clothed, book nude if shooting lingerie etc.)
