New faces rock, the series episode 28: Chris Cabel!
03 out, 2011
Chris is a cool guy from New Jersey. I met him last september in New York at Colby models. A special thanks to my buddy Ryan Colby, director of Colby models who arranged this interview. Chris and Ryan, you guys rock!! And happy birthday Chris, I wish you all the best. Greets from your brazilian buddy!
Whats up, my name is Chris Cabel from Parsippany NJ. I have a pretty eclectic personality and I like to try different things and meet new people whenever possible. I’m a big music fan, and like to go to shows to discover new bands.
I also write reviews and editorials for a music site. I love to play basketball, tennis, and snowboard as well.
How did all begin
The decision was actually in a couple steps. Initially a casting agency approached me in New York and when I went and talked with them it seemed like something I would be interested in. So I did some research and contacted my agency, and the rest is history. I’ve been doing this for about 3 months now, and have had the pleasure of doing a shoot for Portafolio, The Fashionisto, and Client, among numerous tests.
My first test was a good experience, and even though I was a little unsure of certain aspects we got some great pictures and it just added to my dedication. The ability to go to new places and work with people I admire has been awesome. I also found out recently that I will be going to Europe with a placement this fall so I am really looking forward to that and a greater deal of travel in the future.
Working with photographers: naked sometime?
I like a lot of cummunication and collaboration when working with a photographer. I think if you know what each other are going for, that´s when the best end product is delivered. On my end, I think the biggest thing is not being afraid of taking a bad picture, that way everything is more natural and relaxed.
As far as being naked in front of the camera, I dont think it’s a big deal as long as it is artistic as opposed to full frontal heres my dick, enjoy haha. Thus far I haven’t had anything out of the norm happen, but I’m sure it will, I’m still a rookie at this point.
Modeling world: women still rule!
I think that male models have more exposure than they used to but it’s still women who rule the game. Female models still get more attentiont all comes down to the fact that basically everyone would rather look at a woman over a man in photos, they’re just prettier haha.
My favorite models right now are Tony Ward and Daisy Lowe. I think they both bring a certain attitude that makes the pictures cool regardless of the styling, mood, etc.
For the most part I keep it simple with tees and jeans, but I am up on all of the higher fashion and will get completely decked out from time to time.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
Hmm, as long as I wasn’t getting mobbed or molested I think I would just do a make shift meet and greet for a bit then head out. It would be awesome to get that kind of recognition if it was positive. If things were out of hand though, all out sprint haha.
Dating X Love
I like to keep things casual, but I definitely think I’m a romantic at heart. Just need to find the right person at the right time.
I’m a huge Boston Celtics and NY Giants fan and I try to go to games whenever I can. You wont see me shirtless and painted, but I definitely follow both teams religiously. As far as playing sports, basketball and tennis are always good and snowboarding is a blast.
Atracting someone´s attention
I think the best way is to make someone laugh.
Having fun, enjoying life
I like to be surrounded by good friends/people in general. As long as that´s the location isnt the biggest factor. But any outdoor/rooftop party is always nice.
The craziest (nastiest?) thing he´s ever done in a summer time season
About a year ago my friends and I threw a huge party and set up a mud wrestling ring. It was insane, and definitely a good time. Even when the cops came to break it up they were so impressed they just watched. The house the next day was a wreck but totally worth it.
Fav body part and why
I´m a sucker for nice eyes, I think it´s because they can really draw you in and express emotion.
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooool sexy moments (lol!)
Boxer briefs on the reg, and then briefs when the ocassion is right. Always black or some kind of design.
In his IPOD
I’m a huge fan of Coheed and Cambria, The Wonder Years, Glassjaw, and Thursday. Also mewithoutyou, William Elliot Whitmore, and Kid Cudi at the moment.
I really love thai food. Chicken with spicy glass noodles is my jam.
A guilty pleasure
I have an unhealthy obsession with diet soda.
If you weren´t a model you´d be…
Either trapeze artists or president, it´s kind of a toss up haha. In all seriousness I would probably be a marketing coordinator or consultant.
I have a shoot coming up with Ad Le Studios and Josh Mcney I’m really pumped about.

An unforgettable moment
My first kiss haha. It was with this girl in first grade and I will never forget it because at first I thought I was the man and then I kind of bugged out because I had no idea what just happened.
