GETTING TO THE GYM 6 DAYS A WEEK MIGHT SEEM A VERY HARD ROUTINE. IN FACT, IT IS. ONCE YOU DECIDED THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO TO TRAIN AND DEVELOP YOUR BODY, THERE IS NO EXCEPTION POSSIBLE. THE DECISION TO SCULPT YOUR BODY INTO PHYSICAL PERFECTION IS A SERIOUS ONE THAT TAKES DEDICATION, MOTIVATION, A SENSE OF FLEXIBILITY AND ADAPTATION, PATIENCE AND MONEY. BUT IN THE END, IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH IT.
Trevor Adams is everything you don’t expect from a model. First, it was never his conscious choice to become the much sought after model he has become over the years. Trevor started working out at the age of 17, following his motto “looking good tomorrow means taking care of yourself today”. While developing his body, he slowly got introduced to photographers through word of mouth. Trevor soon realized that if you serious about body development, a mirror really isn’t the best reference. Photos are. And so he started to model for photographers in order to keep an eye on his physical development with each shoot allowing him to see the potential flaws or areas he needed to pay extra attention to.
There are many young guys that follow a similar path Trevor has done. Working out and working hard and finding their way in front of a camera. There are also many young guys who, once they realize photos are pretty much forever and for everyone to see, back out once their portraits have been published. Which is not only extremely annoying for editors of magazines and websites, but also disrespectful for the photographers who have spent time, money and effort in making their subjects look as good as possible. Trevor Adams is not such a model. On the contrary Trevor is a shining example of what a male model should be.
Trevor Adams. Born and raised in Texas and still living there. In Houston to be precise. Which proofs already that if you want to be successful as model you do not necessarily need to move to the classic cities such as New York or Los Angeles. It isn’t the place that makes you a successful model. It’s your attitude and commitment. Trevor has now been active in modelling for over 10 years and never forgot his initial motto. Believe it or not, but Trevor is not a professional model. He still sees it as a way to improve both his physique and personality. Trevor might be very bold and forthcoming – in fact he is one of the few who has no issues what so ever to pose naked – but in fact he is a most humble guy, almost shy. Those are the characteristics that make Trevor Adams such a beloved male model for many photographers. Though not professional, he is in fact very professional.
Whenever Trevor Adams travels he will try to contact one or two photographers in the area to see if there is a photo opp. When he recently visited Miami, he contacted David Vance. David enjoys more than 30 years of photography experience in which he has worked on advertisement and editorial assignments for magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Entertainment Weekly, Interview, Rolling Stone and Italian Vogue to mention just a few. Among his long list of clients one can find huge brands such as Revlon, Coca Cola, Lions gate, Sony and Kodak. But David also made name for himself as celebrity photographer and has worked with, among others, Bea Arthur, Sophia Loren, Gloria Estefan, Lil’ Wayne, Ricky Martin, Luciano Pavarotti and Dionne Warwick. His photographs resonate with a dynamic tranquillity, a quiet passion. Sensual and strong as well as haunting and inspiring, David Vance’s work reflects a deep appreciation of classic painting and sculpture and a great love of beauty. Knowing that, do we need to explain why he loves to work with models such as Trevor Adams? No, I didn’t think so. –BM-
