,The height factor is not just an issue with female models but male models as well. Unfortunately, there are even less “exceptions to the rule” when it comes to male models than female models. There are definitely the Kate Mosses of the world but as far as I know there aren’t any male models out there are are short but still super successful or fall into the supermodel realm.
In general, people think of men as being handsome, ruggard, sexy, and…tall! Height for men is super important, especially for photoshoots. I mean, if you’re posing next to a female that is 5’10” without heels and is wearing 4 inch heels and you’re next to her, you should be able to stand your ground, height-wise.
In general, the majority (not all) of agencies that sign on fashion/runway male models set a height range of between 5’10”-6’2″. The more picky ones set the minimum height at 5’11”. And yes, as with female models, there is such a thing as being “too tall.” Male models can usually get away with 6’3″ but any taller than that, and most agencies will more than likely pass on you.
