Matthew (at Consort News): How did you feel when you did your first ever fashion show or photo shoot?

Kevin: My first photo shoot was back in 2008 with Robert Benson.. I had no idea what I was doing or how to model/pose but it turned out to be a great experience. I was really big into break dancing at the time and what was a photo shoot actually felt like a half hour break dancing session. It’s still one of my favorite photo shoots to date.

Matthew: What has been your favorite shoot / campaign / project – to date?

Kevin: That’s a really hard question.. But I would say it’d have to be a project I did with Melchor Ruiz.. working with him was like “Posing Boot camp”. In ridiculously tough positions for what seemed like forever. I learned a lot of about the aesthetic value of lines and body positioning and still use his tips today.

Matthew: The weirdest experience/ thing you have experienced while working in the modeling industry?

Kevin: Wouldn’t call it too “weird” but I remember NYE 2012 in Honolulu, Hawaii, I was walking for Reyn Spooner in a fashion show and I saw this girl in the crowd crying.. literally crying with her hands reached out to me. I didn’t know how to take that. This show was pretty laid back so I reached down, kissed her on the cheek, and she went nuts. I found out my girlfriend at the time was right next to her screaming to get my attention..

Matthew: Your favorite item of clothing and why?

Kevin: I like shades, watches, underwear and shoes. They tend to be the focal point of my outfits. It just sort of happened that way I guess.. haha.

Matthew: If you weren’t modeling what would you see yourself doing?

Kevin: Honestly? Traveling more.. Living on the go and never settling down in one place. Living on a sailboat would be pretty cool, I think.

Matthew: What or where would be your dream Photo shoot?

Kevin: I’d say Hong Kong. A fitness shoot on the busy streets. Me using the city as a gym with chaos going on in the background.
