*FHM requires being seen at a casting, or doing a FHM Test as part of one of our CAT-Shoots before consideration for a shoot. If you don’t want to wait until we can fit you into a shoot to get qualified for FHM, we can meet you and take Polaroids whenever it’s convenient. That way you can be cleared for pre-paid travel to FHM resort shoots and other major FHM shoots and events.
