Arnold Classic Expo

The Arnold Classic Expo costs a mere $10 to get in. It's a huge, it's the biggest fitness Expo and the nation. Second, even to the Olympia, which is in Vegas. The Arnold Classic Expo is in Columbus Ohio, usually early March, late February, every year. Usually everybody who's anybody in the industry is there. Luckily, I live here, so I go every year. But it is worth coming into town for. Almost every major photographer is there. Every major supplement company is there, if you are trying to look for sponsorship. if you're looking for magazines, they're all there.

So that's a great way to self promote yourself. And I've had wonderful success with that type of venue, to put myself out there.

The way I really got started was I was in good condition and I realized the Arnold Classic was coming up.

A motivated person that I was to do something in the industry, I got three pictures, ran them off at Kinko's. Put a bio on and I went to every magazine at the Expo and asked for the editor. If I couldn't get the editor, the senior editor. Then I got whomever else I can get, and I made sure they had my stuff.

Within 60 days, I got a call from Physical Magazine.

I thought it was awesome. They said will pay for your travel, will get you there. It was catered. We'll shoot the cover of the magazine I was overly excited, obviously.

If you have a large amount of muscularity and want to become a male fitness model or obtain a sponsor from a weightlifting supplement company, we encourage you to attend the next Arnold Classic Expo for the purposes of promoting yourself and making contacts in the industry, just like Cory did it. However, first we encourage you to create a Campus Men profile as soon as you can. Creating a Campus Men Profile starts you on the road of promoting yourself, and building a group of people who follow tips you add using the site's "Self-Publishing Tool". The influential people who you will later seek to choose you as their next fit this model or for the next sponsorship contract will see the fanbase you've built by creating a Campus Men Profile. You can show influential people the tips you add to our site using the Campus Men's incredibly easy Self-Publishing Tool.

  • Shoot Prep

    After working with thousands of new models and college students, we know the concerns, issues and questions many new models have before their first photo shoot. It is normal for even the most macho guy to be nervous prior to his first shoot. We compiled all this training info into “ShootPrep” – our dedicated site for training models with whom we work.

    Our photographer uses to train new models before their photo sessions.
