Today we're talking to Sam M, one of our Commercial male & fitness models.
Sam is always in great shape and keeps himself busy with lots of modelling work, and we spoke to him about how he became a model and what makes him tick.
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I was originally training to be an Accountant. After doing a series of office jobs, I decided this type of work wasn't for me so I decided to try modelling just for fun back in 2007. With a pretty dull first set of images and limited knowledge of the industry, I didn't really see my career going anywhere at all.
In 2012, things started to change when I really started to look in more depth at my portfolio and how I could improve. This led to me being booked more often and subsequently I started to model full-time.
I have a Track & Field background (400m, 400m hurdle, Long Jump and Javelin) so I do some sports modelling as well. I wouldn't really say have a typical 'model' personality. I can be quiet at first but lovely when you get to know me.
One yet unfulfilled ambition is to sing or to be part of a band. Lets see what 2016 and the future holds!
What inspired you to become a model?
I wasn't accepted to work for a high-profile US brand for unknown reasons even to this day - that made me so determined to do it and prove them wrong. It's also rewarding and a flexible way to earn a living.
Is a jaffa cake a biscuit or a cake?
As Marjorie Dawes would say...'Caaaaaake, I just love a bit of Caaaaake'!!!
Which celebrity do you wish you were best friends with?
Dame Kelly Holmes or Jessica Ennis MBE - normal girls who have proved what hard work and self belief can do for you.
What are you currently reading
I am not really a big reader but if I am honest, some of my old Uni Maths notes. I was thinking of doing some teaching in my spare time. It's rewarding to pass something on to other people particularly with something like Mathematics
Who is your favourite designer & why?
Gucci - I love their style, colours and the feel of the product when wearing it.
What did you have for breakfast?
A banana and some cereal. Sometimes I will have a glass of lemon water slightly heated.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?
London is a good place to live but also Dubai. I was lucky enough to have gone in 2014 and it took me a few weeks to get back to reality.
What’s your guilty treat?
A bacon and cheese burger at Byron's.
Every now and then you've gotta have a treat.
Who would play you in a film of your life?
Not sure about that, is there anyone that crazy? Joking!
Maybe I would have to play myself. I haven't changed a great deal over the years.
