Men's runway is so boring. I would put a little more "stank" juice in it.
Go to Atlanta and you will definitely see what I'm talking about.

I need a MALE pro to teach me, but I guess you can't find one on YouTube.

Author upsuits13 ( ago)
But why male models?

Author Eric Benz ( ago)
Not even...... Posture like string thru spine and skull, natural , fluid.
In character per show or with attitude. Also walking like your d*** is down
to your knees and work it. Naughty.

Author Terry Tibbs ( ago)
You sound like a female matthew mcconaughey

You know that infuriating event when your step-brother (who's been a loser
forever, incidentally) gets a jaw-dropping girl to fall in love with him in
like 3 weeks?! Yep, that just happened. I am aware I ought to be happy but
I would prefer if it was me. He said he applied the the Cupid Love System
(Search for it in Google). I wanna hide out inside of a cave right now...

VERY HELPFUL. Thank you!

Author Jay Alia ( ago)
I've walked in shows, she's an idiot. Basically, lemme break it down for
the guys. WALK LIKE YOU NORMALLY WOULD. Arms naturally swinging a lil bit
to avoid looking stiff, shoulders relaxed but not slouching, chin parallel
with the floor, feet moving side by side (duh) and take fair strides. It's
not hard at all...She's a scam artist, I can smell it from here.

Author Dion Gamble ( ago)
Thank you for this!

Of course men over lap theyre legs, you just gotta know how to handle it to
make it look masculine.

Author shane robinson ( ago)

Author m smith ( ago)
john robert powers is the biggest joke. having done runway modeling the
first rule is keep arms still withput looking forced, ypu never swing arms.

Author Nitesh Mohite ( ago)

@joel91790 no worries joel... i'm gonna repsond to you in your message
box... i'll write in greater length there

Author Joel Jr ( ago)
@XxSpartaxX umm sorry to come in the conversation XxSPARTAxX but if you
don't mind me asking how exactly do you even find a agent?? i mean like say
if i were to get some head shots done and i want a career in this field,
how do i even begin? just sending out the head shots?? 

Author Bizu ( ago)
@SETHWANTSAHUG that's awesome bro... but the point is... never spend ANY
money trying to find an agent... look in my videos and watch for BRIANS
DEMO REEL.. you'll see i was on 15 episodes of Days of Our Lives...a few
commercials is nothing to what i did in ten years of Hollywood...i know the
industry and anyone and Hollywood would tell you to never spend money at
JRP...they are for the most part gold a guy who's been in
the biz all his life.. :)

Author Seth Sanders ( ago)
@XxSpartaxX I dunno man. I've been in several commercials and I owe it ALL
to JRP...

Author Bizu ( ago)
@SETHWANTSAHUG (part2) that's why these parasite company's like JRP sprung
up.. I remember when they first came into business back in the 80's and
everyone knew they were a big money stealing hoax... again, i'm not bashing
you...i just hate JRP because they stole 5 grand from you and you'll never
work!!! Trust me, Go-sees always turn their nose up to JRP models...ALWAYS!
Get yourself a good agent and they'll do the work for you bro :) good luck.

Author Bizu ( ago)
@SETHWANTSAHUG Hey bro... thanks for the comment...there is no right or
wrong here so i'm not chastising you at all...the only thing that matters
is what you said "You couldn't be happier" right? :) With that said, allow
me to kindly a professional model who's done runway in Rome,
Tokyo, NY, LA, London, and the motherlode Paris...I did it the way it
should be done, get headshots, find an agent and they send you out on
go-sees...NOTHING should cost you $5000 EVERRRRR

Author Seth Sanders ( ago)
@V3GAdigi1 I was in JRP.... It cost me five thousand dollars... We only had
three... JRP put me through on their scholarship to pay over half the
balance. And I have never been happier. I now have a plan to fall back on
when I get out of the military. I can be a male model and have experience
modeling on my resume. Yes. It costs money. But I THINK, its definitely
worth it. TO ME...

Author Dablkwid0w2008 ( ago)
yall should call it the lion walk man men have it easy

Author Brian G ( ago)
first off... this is JOHN ROBERT POWERS!!!! DO NOT GO SIGN WITH THEM!!!
nothing...I did Milan runways for Versace and the guys typically never move
their arms like she is doing...yes keep your legs side by side and arms
straight up and down and locked at the sides.. it's more MOD that way :)

@deanriam HAHA dude exactly my thoughts! 

Author ☽ аиаѕтаsіо ☾ ( ago)
She's not a man, but she IS a model trainer. She DOES teach male models how
to walk.

Author HARDEY LEONE ( ago)
Men walk how they walk to be honest. We never try to train them too much.

Author Jax Teller ( ago)

Author West McMehan ( ago)
What the hell, Don't listen to her, watch some male runway shows, she has
no idea how male models really walk.

Author Jeshua Viveiros (BoifromIpanema) ( ago)
@sparkstarr12 hahahahahahahah SARCASM MUCH? heh i love it!

Author Jeshua Viveiros (BoifromIpanema) ( ago)
i don't know how i stumbled onto this, but if i did this on the catwalk, i
would never book another job ever! hahah IF YOU ARE AN ASPIRING MODEL, DONT
FOLLOW THIS! hahah casting directors will laugh at you.

Author sparkstarr12 ( ago)
that's a great advice! At first i didn't notice the difference between mens
and womens leg positioning, now i finally get it with your help! Next, can
you please elaborate on which hand i should use to scratch my balls?

Author Amit Yadav ( ago)

Author Meg Usta ( ago)
I know, I know. ^_^ And the thing is, women inevitably roll their hips to
walk, so they really should have gotten a man to do this one.

Author 345vertify1 ( ago)

Author RonaldBarone ( ago)
Great... now I want to know what to do when I am walking at WALMART DOING
star now :-)

Author Amit Yadav ( ago)
wtf? she is exaggerating. A man should be demonstrating this.....what's
wrong with expert village, they've been using too many bozos lately!!!

Author J Hoogwoud ( ago)
WHAT IS SHE DOING? please...

Author Rick Lay ( ago)
girls walk in one rail boys in two rails and as they walk when they step
and stomp just a litle bit both female and male and males dont walk moving

Author Art1cM0k3yz ( ago)
heh...yall moany

Author jmanzano17 ( ago)
this is so funny!

Author peacha2011 ( ago)
I wondering how can I start a career in modeling.. Im a 6'2 african
american male and very interested in doing this.... Any pointers?

Author Kraytoz ( ago)
I have to agree with nlarson03, this lady knows a crap about male runway

Author Nathan Larson ( ago)
I'm a male model in New York, and I've walked on runways during NY fashion
week. This is nothing like what a male runway walk looks like. I would
never book a job walking like that! If you want to see a real male runway
walk just watch runway shows for a top fashion designer. This lady is stiff
and awkward.

Author ellivro99 ( ago)
when she walks..she moves her hips too much!!

Author flyinvisible ( ago)
why does anyone really care to comment this much on something. I think it's

Author flyinvisible ( ago)
Yes it's my life and since you can't figure out sarcasm from a letter i'll
point it out to you. It was sarcasm. I'm just saying john robert powers is
overpriced for what they teach. Heck K D studios is better for the price
and they are still pricey.

Author Faiz Fenty ( ago)
She did it quite wrong lol. She was too stiff.

Author flyinvisible ( ago)
Have you seen that new guy on who wants to be a supermodel. jOnathan.
Really good walker, better than tyson or anyone i've seen. His James Bond
walk was the BEST!!!!!! I hope he does well in the real modeling

Author vision6961 ( ago)
This STUFF is GREAT!!!!!!!! for all up and comming PUA's because it place
such a strong emphasis on body language.

Author Israel Jimenez ( ago)
Right...yet a man can teach a female how to walk....

Author Daryious ( ago)
Actually, watching Tyson Beckford walk is like watching the same commercial
walk of every other male model. There is no "hyper masculine swagger" yet
to hit the runway.

Author flyinvisible ( ago)
um....... hello TYSON...... exciting walk is him

Author flyinvisible ( ago)
no not really...... they just take a lot of peoples money. and Teach you
stuff you could pick up on your own.

Author flyinvisible ( ago)
john robert powers is good but they mostly try and get money out of you. I
did this when I was little. If you can walk good and give different walks
then you can make it.

Author Tetley007 ( ago)
her "correct" walk is hunched over like chaka

Author NextSuperstar88 ( ago)
geez...i'm bored

Author VRRV ( ago)
daft punk needs to remix this crap

Author alvanson ( ago)
that's bullshit advice from all hag that don't know shit. When you walk the
calk you have to strut your shit in fact if you see some of the models from
Paul Smith or Burberry they totally strut like there's no tomorrow...HAVE
TO STRUT...otherwise you look weak. Its all confidence...

Author Daryious ( ago)
Nope, not yet, anyway. Because male modeling isn't what most of the
industry is based upon, there have been no "exciting" male runway walks.

Author Pro1331 ( ago)
So basically, just walk normally and you suddenly have a "stylish walk".
...well, well. Does she take up so much time to say this just to sound more
serious ?

Author vistaprime ( ago)
is there an equivalent in the male modelling world of a male walker who has
a distinctive walk like say Naomi Campbell.

Author vistaprime ( ago)
this sucks. They need a man to demonstrate. I mean if male model walked
like that on a runaway, he would would be from any more shows.

Author Daryious ( ago)
Actually, all the castings that I have booked have preferred that I overlap
my feet while I walk. It may be a move well-defined by women, but so are a
lot of other things that have been incorporated into the high fashion male

Author Nick Chan (1890 years ago)
hehe, at the try-outs every other guy did the wrong walks that she showed.
I managed to quickly watch this vid before I went out the door for the
casting. THnx

Author dandypajamas ( ago)
This is PERFECT! Thanks for posting, I'm going to put it into practice for
all my runway castings :)
