THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY SOME GUYS DECIDE TO GIVE MODELING A TRY. SOME DO IT FOR THE KICK, THE CHANCE TO STRIP DOWN AND SHOW THEIR BODS TO THE REST OF TH WORLD. SOME DO IT FOR HOPES OF FAME AND FORTUNE. AND THERE ARE OTHERS WHO SIMPLY DO IT BECAUSE THEY CAN AND BECAUSE IT IS A CHANCE TO MOVE ON IN THE WORLD THAT HAS NOT GIVEN THEM THE OPPORTUNITIES TO DO IT OTHERWISE.
Jay Kelly Kilpatrick was born in Southern California hich for many probably sounds like a dream. Who doesn't want to be born in America's Golden State. Isn't this where dreams are made and fame can be found? Not for everyone though. Kelly grew up poor and not in the best of neighborhoods. His family decided to move away from California and settle in Colorado when Kelly was 10 years old, and maybe that was the first step for Kelly to get away from the kind of life fate had handed him.
Kelly Kilpatrick graduated at 17 from High School and about the same time a friend's mother suggested to him his should try modeling. Kelly gave it some thought and, liking the idea, picked up some small modeling gigs to gain experience. His friend's mother proofed to have been right. Kelly was a natural when it came to striking a ose and it wasn't for long before Kelly started to get professional jops and was building his portfolio. He did it for a few years before decideding to start stuying at the Art Institue for Game Art and Design. Kelly's original passions are drawing and creating all kinds of artistic works, so this decision made all the sense in the world.
Now, 7 years later, Kelly Kilpatrick once again lives in California, where he calls Fontana his hometown. Represented by Crew Models International, he has found his way to many natioanl and international online media, both as underwear and artistic model. You probably thought already Jay Kelly looks familiar, and you are right. 2 Years ago he featured in The Rain Room, a BeautifulMag article based on the photography by Robert A. Rice. His publications have helped Kelly to realize he really has potential for professional modeling, and helped him to make plans and set goals. Fashion photogrpahy among them, in which he made a great start collaborating with Lucas Ferrier.
Lucas Ferrier, photographer working from new York City and Milan, is someone who takes his work very seriously. His models need to look like model. Fit bodies, clear skin, and be as passionate about what they do as Lucas is himself. Having modeled for 20 years himself, Lucas knows as no other what it takes to get the best out of portraiture. Being a photographer for 10 years now, he knows how to take care of his models and create editorials and folios that are stunning.
