I honestly can't remember what ticked my switch to get it started. All I remember doing was taking bathroom selfies and sending applications to all the top agencies around the world. Regret it now, but I wouldn't be where I am without doing it haha.

My favourite would have to be heading over to la and shooting with Damon baker. I always loved his work and it was a dream to shoot with him. I remember I'd always try and work out how he edited his photos and experiment with them because I loved the shots so much. Then turn around 1 year and I have shots taken and edited by him in LA. It was just a crazy dream

 

Aw I thought u where Gona say this interview hahaha... 😂 Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Cats or dogs?

Would you have Any advice to any guys who want to get into the industry ?

Modelling is the only industry I know of where the ball isn't in your court. You can't work your ass off to put yourself in a huge campaign. At the end of the day you need to work on yourself but understand that brands will have the final say in your career. That being said no stopping you stepping a foot in the door so I'd suggest getting some photos taken and forwarding them to agencies around you.
