To me, glamour modeling is about seducing the camera. A good glamour model commands attention or a jaw drop with her goddess like qualities and confidence. Being a glamour model you are more of a classy tease. Put a model in Wal-Mart undies, spread her legs and have her suck on a lollipop, that turns trashy real quick. But if you put a model in Agent Provocateur or Victoria’s Secret with amazing hair & make-up and a fancy hotel suite, and she knows how to pose sensually, then it’s classy.

In a recent article, leading US glamour photographer Nino Batista (photo) looks at the perceptions of the field and its distinctions from fashion. “Fashion sells a product, glamour sells the model.”
