How was it working with the awesome Simon Barnes?
Working with Simon Barnes was absolutely incredible. He is at the pinnacle of the industry. He has helped me more than I could ever repay him over the past months and is always there when I need direction or advice. I have now shot with him several times and will continue to do so as our shoots are constantly evolving and he is helping me develop at a pace that can’t be rivaled. He has been supportive of any concerns and obstacles that I have come across and I now value him both as a professional and a friend.
What inspired you to do a photo shoot and try fitness modeling?
Well I originally started out in fashion/commercial modelling when I was 18 but my passion for the gym soon outgrew this and so I took some time off to build my physique and when I felt ready I started looking into the world of fitness modelling.
What key steps are you taking now to become a male fitness model?
I have now relocated to London to be at the heart of things, I have found this crucial for networking within the industry and getting a foot in the door. I also was recently picked up by BSN Nutrition UK and represented them at Body Power Expo recently. This again opened more doors and increased my presence within the industry
Name one fitness model you look up to? And one photographer you want to work with?
I have admiration for a lot of people within the industry my inspiration is mainly drawn from a close friend of mine, Vince Azzopardi, who blurs the lines between fashion and fitness. I also have massive appreciation for a lot of the new faces on the scene who are already making a massive impact such as James Ellis, Simon George and Joe Palmer whose drive and dedication is inspirational. There are two photographers who I really hope to shoot with in the near future they are Thomas Synammon and Thomas Watkin
