Aaron Marcus Can Teach Anyone
- Make additional income by working as a commercial model on a part-time basis

- Get work as an actor/commercial model – no matter where you live
- Unlike the fashion industry, there are no height, weight, or age restrictions in the commercial modeling industry
Open any non-fashion magazine, and look at the models in the ads.
Who do you see?
You will find that the majority of the models do not look like fashion models, but instead are beautiful and “real” looking people portraying moms, dads, patients, doctors, mechanics, infants, students, lawyers, bankers, and many other professions and roles in society.
Commercial models are seen on everything from packaging for hair coloring products to cell phone ads. Unlike the fashion industry, which has very strict physical demands, commercial modeling has no age, height, weight, or size restrictions; all types of people are needed. Also, commercial modeling work is available virtually everywhere, even in small cities. Throughout North America, commercial models earn between $25-$250 an hour.
Why Am I An Expert?
Well, I look like everybody’s next door neighbor, and over the past 27 years I have been cast in 1,201 projects so far. You have seen me as Dr. Barnes on “Law & Order: CI”, Dr. Stephen Leopold on NBC’s Do No Harm, “The West Wing”, “The Wire”, the Priest in Philomena, the History Teacher in the feature Almanac and even as the rock grunge guitarist for Molson Beer.
Not only have I written what many consider the “Bible” for commercial modeling, “How to Become a Successful Commercial Model”, (now in its 5th edition) I also publish the Tear Sheet acting/commercial modeling newsletter.
