Male model am­bi­tions

Townsville Bulletin - - Savvy -

MOVE over glam­our girls of Townsville, our gor­geous guys are now vy­ing for your beauty ti­tles.

A new gen­er­a­tion of males, not shy of slink­ing down the run­ways or us­ing their best brood­ing looks in front of the cam­era, have ar­rived.

North Queens­land’s mod­el­ling scene is no doubt pre­dom­i­nantly fe­male, with most males un­will­ing to strut their stuff for fear of break­ing the bro-code.

But 18-year-old Ash­ley Briggs re­fuses to con­form and in­stead chose to per­form – by shoot­ing his port­fo­lio re­cently with Colour­box Photographics.

‘‘ I don’t get any rib­bing from my mates and I haven’t copped any­thing yet, but I did used to be a hair­dresser so that’s prob­a­bly why,’’ he said.

The City Beach sales as­sis­tant now plans to pur­sue some part-time pos­ing, af­ter see­ing what a lu­cra­tive ven­ture it has been for his fe­male coun­ter­parts.

‘‘ There are a lot of pretty girls out there do­ing it and guys don’t get much of a look in so I thought if there is an op­por­tu­nity there I should take ad­van­tage of it,’’ Ash­ley said.

‘‘ I am re­ally happy with my first shoot – I didn’t feel stressed, there was no drama – it just came nat­u­rally.’’

The Ing­ham boy now plans on look­ing for an agent, go­ing to cast­ings and maybe even vy­ing for some lo­cal mod­el­ling crowns by en­ter­ing Townsville’s Fash­ion Bash or the Cos­mopoli­tan Model Search.
