I guess the strangest thing about me that people wouldn't know is I've been huge dungeons and dragons and roleplayer for years. Growing up with fantasy books and movies it's been my biggest love since I was a child.
Brandon, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Starting as a model I was glass collecting one night at a bar and as I was leaning over a table I heard someone compliment my back.. it was strange but I turned and talked to the person who made the comment and he turned out to be a photographer.. one thing led to another and next thing I know I'm doing a shoot, and it's really become my passion.
Who is your inspiration in life Brandon? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is people like Tom Waits, and Neil gained... people who can turn anything into something and make it beautiful and thought provocative
We all make mistakes Brandon; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I've been very fortunate as a model and haven't embarrassed myself too much. I hope. I wish I was more confident sometimes and put ideas across to people
Brandon, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
Just be clear and honest as much as possible and ask what they want and where and when they need it.
Please tell us, Brandon, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Just keeping that calender neat and tidy, making sure I keep myself on target and not double booked.
Brandon, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way to work successfully.
I don't have an example of this sadly when working I understand the photographer has a clear idea in their head and I work hard to make that happen
Brandon, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Probably the first time I was asked to do something for a magazine. it felt like real progression
Brandon, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The work I see as all creative as is the nature of the business, but me pushing my limits and seeing how they turn out made it exciting
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
It's hard but confident is key, and also keep an open mind.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, of course, any and all. I want to do as much as possible.
