When we think of modeling, most of us probably have a particular image in mind. Perhaps that image involves gawking crowds around a runway with models strutting with vigor in some “new look” for the season. Or maybe the bikini clad woman of Sport Illustrated and other notable publications pop into your head. Whatever the case may be, it may surprise you to find out just how many different types of modeling actually exist.
Here’s and extensive but certainly not complete list:
This niche is all about the clothing being worn and usually features tall, slender models.
A few of the many Sub-genres include –
Editorial, Runway and Showroom
It’s pretty much just what it sounds like. Models in this niche show off specific body parts like hands, feet, legs…
Some sub-genres include -
Product, Lifestyle and Corporate
This genre is all about showcasing fit and athletic models often in sporty clothing.
One of my favorites, it deals with models sporting body modifications like tattoos and piercings along with a punk or goth pics style.
This style focuses on sexual or sensual themes. This can range from mild to quite intense in terms of how graphic the content might become.
It’s finally here!!!
As you may know by now, in my photography work I love the chance to work with alternative models. While that genre of modeling does cover a lot of area, I’m specifically referring to those who feature tattoos and piercings, vibrant colored hair and perhaps something of a goth, emo or punk style.
That being the case, a site I work with called Twisted Angels just published it’s 2013 wall calendar. I’m so excited by the results considering it’s the first time the site’s calendar has featured more than 13 photos. The count is actually 25, the cover, one main shot for each month and one small one too.
Anyway, if you’re so inclined to check out a preview, you can do so below.
Please keep in mind that some of these photos would fall into the NSFW category and you may not want them to be readily accessible by children. Nudity can be and often is artistic and beautiful but is also often hard to explain to your boss of an inquisitive young child.

As you might know my now…
my of my photography work focuses on what you might call “goth pics.” Now while that can be a bit of an oversimplified take on the subject matter, it does hold some credibility.
When working with models, I tend to seek out those with various body modifications or just an alternative style like those who might consider themselves punk, emo or yes, even goth.
I think part of my reason for doing so it the unique factor models working in this genre seem to posses. So, I decided to include a few images that I have captured over tha last few years for your viewing pleasure.
