Don't I have a treat for you, if you love a bearded man, tattoos and model good looks, well look no further. I got up close and personal with model Lewis - who is all three! (I know, you're welcome ;) I was so glad that Lewis was such a good sport and wanted to do the interview, as I knew he would just be perfect for my next post! Also as it is his first interview (Yes, I love a good exclusive!) so I was honoured to get the ball rolling, as I know this guy is going to go far!
Name: LewisAge: 30
Hello Lewis, how are you today?I'm great!
What does a normal day for you consist of?Coffee before anything! Then a usual catch up with social media & emails etc. My days are not always the same it’s either quiet or manic and all last minute but I like spontaneity so that OK with me!
How did you become a model? Did you always want to be one, if not what did you want to be and why?I commented on a picture of photographer Darren Black's picture on instagram and he said come down to the studio one day and let’s do something so it all went from there really. No real plan to get into this work/lifestyle but it’s always intrigued me so here I am!
I've never known what I wanted to do still don't! Mainly just be successful at something and happy with what I’m doing.
What type of modelling do you do?Mostly fashion, clothing labels and have done a few magazine editorials.
Who have you modelled for?Lots of brands and photographers! Check my instagram out where everyone is credited @lewisthegreat
I love your sleeves, when did you decided you wanted to get tattoos?I was about 17 and discovered tattoos and fell in love with Japanese Art/Culture so plan on covering my body in time.
What is your most meaningful and important tattoo? And would you get anymore in the near future?My most recent one actually. It's a Buddha Head which represents peace & going through change trying to better yourself. Was done at Lowerider Tattoo located in Bethnal Green, great bunch of artists very talented.
Your look is really on trend right now, especially your beard (which I also love)! Have you always had one or did you grow it out when you started modelling?I always had facial hair as clean shaven doesn't suit me ha! I have just grown it and seems to have Inhanced my look so I’ll keep it for now.
When it comes to your beard, do you use any particular product or do you have a routine to help you maintain your beard?Well it’s just hair so shampoo & conditioner plus I use oils on it to keep it smelling sexy, oils from www.apothecary87.co.uk great product!
How would you describe your style? (Fashion-wise)I have a mixed style some days I dress 'street' some days I dress Smart all depends on mood (and weather).
Do you think your style has improved since you started modelling?Yes of course I’m more aware of brands now and having worked with stylists you see outfits come together so that gives me inspiration.
What’s your favourite look for the summer?Denim Shorts, a Vest & Shades what else!
What is your favourite piece of clothing?A T-Shirt it’s a staple part of an outfit, well a casual one anyway.
What do you spend your time doing, when you’re not modelling? (Hobbies)Plan my next tattoo or just chill listening to music or watching movies my favourite things to do.
What type of music are you loving right now?An artist by the name of Sohn. Or anything from the Majestic Casual YouTube channel!
What three items can you not live without?I don’t have three, my iphone does it all haha!
If you could be one person for the day who would it be and why?Probably Kurt Cobain just to experience his crazy influential mind.
Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years’ time? Possibly being well renowned male model?I can’t see that far in to the future I take each day as it comes but I’m not sure modelling will be for that long so at least I can say I have done it and it’s been fun so far!
I hope you enjoyed this post with the talented Lewis!
Until next time
