We present a radiative-convective equilibrium model for young giant exoplanets. Model predictions are compared with the existing photometric measurements of the planet β Pictoris b in the J, H, Ks, L', NB 4.05, M' bands. This model will be used to interpret future photometric and spectroscopic observations of exoplanets with SPHERE, mounted at the VLT with a first light expected mid-2014.
