Photo guidelines

To have the best opportunity of being selected as a mature model for a Real Models client photoshoot, we need the best photograph of you for our gallery.

These are guidelines to give you the best chance of being selected by our clients.

Your original photo must show your head, face and shoulders clearly. To increase your chances of being considered, we recommend that the photo must also show your natural expression (smiling is good), be as uncluttered as possible and not have anyone else in it.

Original digital photos with a minimum file size is 300kb are acceptable, and must be provided as a ‘jpeg’ image file type. Photos that are cropped from original images, taken from newspaper articles, inserted on Word documents, or scanned from other images are often not acceptable.

Please look carefully through the examples below, and our tips for the best photo of yourself.
