Steve, how did you get into modelling?
I've wanted to be a model since about the age of 16. I was approached 8 months ago at the gym by a well known physique photographer, Blake Yelavich. The rest is history.
Tell us something about one of your favourite photoshoots?
My favorite photoshoot would have to be my first. I didn't know what to expect and the level of excitement/anxiety was more than thrilling. I like to be out of my comfort zone.
When it comes to fashion, what are your favourite brands or designers?
To be honest, I'm more into how things fit and not so much the brand; right now I'm really feeling Helsinki Athletica's 2019 line.
What are your key achievements when it comes to modelling?
Some of my top achievements include: ADL Magazine of course, DNA Magazine, and being featured in "Bountiful" by Blake Yelavich. I'm also proud to say that I've modeled for PUMP, Walking Jack, Viced Man, MEAT, Separatec, Turlock and Co, CellBlock13, Timateo, Helsinki Athletica, and a few other swim and underwear lines.
How do you prepare for a photoshoot?
Preparing for a photoshoot for me is more mental than physical. I do my best to stay in "photo ready" shape so other than watching my sodium, I don't do much. Headphones and whatever song I'm replaying until 5 minutes before!
If you were asked to walk down the fashion runway during London's fashion week, what would you wear and why?
If it couldn't be my favorite joggers.... it'd have to be Gucci right?
How do you keep fit ?
Two words. Consistency and Discipline. Consistency in the gym, and Discipline on the diet.
Do you have any other hobbies outside of modelling?
Boating, softball, and innovating. My three favorite things in the world!
We all have guilty pleasures what's yours?
Key lime pie and swiping on Tinder with no intention of meeting. Shh.....Don't tell anyone..
What inspires you as a model?
The next set. I'm the type of person that likes improvement. Each set inspires me to do better the next.
How would you describe your style?
Active. You'll find me in tapered shirts and skinny's or shirtless with joggers on.
