‘The Face’ host opened up in an exclusive open letter — see what he had to say about his career!
I have always been interested in photography, but growing up it never dawned on me that it could be a career. In high school, I used to take photos of my friends and school sporting events. In fact, it was my biology teacher who taught me to print black and white prints when I was 14 years old. At the very same high school called Bryanston, I studied the sciences, as well as fashion design, tailoring and weaving! That lead to my mum entering me into a televised model search competition in England called The Clothes Show. I was lucky enough to get selected for the show, but didn’t win. I made it to the final four and secured a contract with Select models in London.
