THE TIME THAT WE WOULD STEP INTO THE FOOTSTEPS OF OUR FATHERS AND GRANDFATHERS IS LONG FINISHED. TODAY WE HAVE THE FREEDOM TO DO WHAT WE WANT. TO CHOOSE THE PATH OF OUR LIFE AND FILL IT IN ANYWAY WE LIKE. IT ISN'T ALWAYS THE EASIEST WAY TO PLAN YOU LIFE AND LIVE SUCCESSFULLY. BUT WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY.
JR Wallace is only 22 years old but looks like he can carry the world on is shoulders. No surprise here if I tell you JR works as a fitness model. This hasn't always been so however. Before fitness there was modelling. JR started modelling at the sweet age of 17. He got contracted by an agency based in The Woodlands, Texas, called First Models Houston. He kicked of well, doing some commercial and fashion modelling and even landed some print ads and TV commercials. But after a while the gigs slowed down and modelling came to a slow stop. JR slowly saw his modelling dream dying.
Though already very conscious that modelling requires a good physical condition, JR Wallace has picked up on fitness around the same time he started working in front of the camera. When modelling seems to be a dead end track, he became more focussed on working out and even started to do some fitness competitions. Not very successful though. His first try left him dead last. But JR is not the kind of man to give up easily. He has a competitive spirit and that is exactly what it takes if you want to succeed. No matter what you choose to do. He went back to the gym and worked harder. His second competition laded him a 12th place. Not at all bad, but still not enough for JR. He worked even harder and finally got 3rd place nationally qualified in his third competition.
Satisfied with his accomplishments in both competitions and fitness results, JR Wallace once again started to dream of his first passion: modelling. He stopped passing up opportunities for fitness competitions and decided to focus a 100% on his modelling career. And where there is a will there is a way. Since he made his bold decision, things have taken off and he has been places he'd never been, doing things he never thought he would do, meeting people he never dreamed of meeting. One of them is Bart Ruzik.
Originally from Brooklyn New York, Bart Ruzik is now described as a freelance photographer located in the New York City/Northern NJ area. Bart has been published in several magazines and works with a variety of model agencies. He enjoys traveling, so if you are a model and interested in working with Bart, there is always the possibility to meet him close to your hometown. He also loves working on projects unique to him such a his website which is due to go life soon. Living in New York it is almost inevitable to build a portfolio with nice chiselled men. After all, New York is full of them. Not all able to model though, but Bart seems to have the knick of it to filter the best ones out. The proof can be seen on his Facebook page, and, as mentioned before, son on his website. JR Wallace is a beautiful addition to Bart's gallery. –BM-
