New faces rock, the series. Episode 24: Hunter Clowdus!
29 jul, 2011
Well, thank you so much for having me! I’m 19 and extremely athletic! I am from Chattanooga, Tennessee and have lived here my entire life. It has everything I want and need, plus the best friends I could ever ask for, and the most amazing family in the world!
How did all begin
Funny story actually, I had no interest whatsoever in modeling. Jokingly I allowed a friend of mine to make a page for me and the rest is history! I have always played sports and been in shape but never did I think it would lead to the things it has. I feel so blessed! The best thing about modeling is the traveling!
I have been able to see so many cool things and meet some of the nicest people in the industry. You know I think models tend to get stereotyped into being stuck up, arrogant, cocky, etc, but surprisingly thats not the case! Everyone I have met is very down to earth and humble.
Working with photographers: getting a quick pump in to get the blood flowing!
I like connecting with them on a personal level and knowing specifically what we are trying to get out of the shoot. I look at modeling as a “team sport” if you will. I alone can not achieve the best pictures if the photographer and I are not on the same page. However if we are, magic! haha joking but the pictures are ten times better and at the end of the day I can be proud of the work. Before I shoot with my shirt off I always like to get a quick pump in to get the blood flowing. It clears my mind but also makes my muscles appear fuller.
I may knock out 50 push ups or so and some jumping jacks. I really enjoy elastic exercise bands to pump up fast. My second shoot I was working with a model in which you are familiar with, Tommy Cupples, and he had a band with him. I start curling it and all of a sudden I heard a loud snap! I had ripped his band in half! I felt so bad and embarrassed because it had slapped me in the face but he told me not to worry about it haha
The catwalks´ experiences
Being new to the modeling world I unfortunately have not gotten the opportunity to work with any major designers yet but I would love to eventually work with Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and other designers that exemplify sexy class.
Definitely! haha I actually get asked often what I am wearing and I always try to stay on top of the latest style and in some cases use things that work for me and create my own. Because I work out so much, I wear mostly soft, plain t-shirts with a nice pair of jeans and high tops. I keep my colors somewhat simple because I want the focus to be on me and not so much my clothes. Shoes however I will stretch the limit on haha I never buy them in stores, I will only order them. I like brands such as Supra, Creative Recreation, Nike 6.0, and of course Jordans if I’m just chillin.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
haha ah great question! Well first I would like to say I am very humble and know that GOD has given me the ability to do what I do. With that being said, I love attention! I would stay as long as it took to make my fans happy because at the end of the day they are what makes this job fun. I would sign as many autographs and take as many pictures as they wanted because again I think it is so important to make them happy. They are the best so you have to treat them like they deserve!
Hunter on Human Rights
I try to stay up on current events and the news so I know what is going on and although I do have views on these topics I tend to not voice my opinion because I don’t have enough knowledge to hold a competitive argument or debate them. I will leave that to the politicians and they can leave me to model
Show biz, Fame, Success….
I think it is exactly what it says. It´s a show, but it is also a business. If something is asked of myself I always do my best and deliver to the best of my ability. I believe fame is being well known. Success is much more complicated. I think if you ask five people you will get six different answers! Everyone has their own opinion but in my mind I believe it is happiness and being content in the situation you are in because all the money in the world means nothing if you are not happy.
Love X Dating
Very athletic (baseball,football, tennis, boxing, mma, wrestling)
Atracting someone´s attention
The classic “what’s up?” head nod usually does the trick ha
I absolutely love the movies! It´s a time for me to relax and watch others work on the big screen. I will go downtown and get some food or just go shopping with friends and sometimes I just wanna hang with my family who are my rock.
Craziest thing in a summer season
Hmm, probably drank raw eggs every morning after a five mile run, not very tasty haha
Fav body part
Although I love my arms and chest I have to go with my abs. I have worked very hard for them and as any model can tell you the dieting is the biggest pain ever!
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooooool sexy moments (LOL)
For sure my soft comfortable Tommy Hilfiger boxers
Lil Wayne of course! I think he is lyrically on another level and some of the things he comes up with are crazy!
DESSERT! ah I love sweets!
An Unforgettable moment
One unforgettable moment is impossible, its more of an unforgettable experience
I am expecting to really progress as I enter my second year in the industry. I have made some connections that I am sure will pay off. I have been doing some acting and going to a few casting calls so as soon as I get into to something I will be sure to let you know. As far as modeling I am planning on going to Miami, New York, and England in the next several months. The people I meet and the places I see are incredible so nailing down.
When you´ll come to my world?
I would love to come soak up some brazilian sun! I heard it is beautiful there. My motto is “The World is Yours” said by Tony Montana in the famous movie Scarface. With hard work and a bit of luck anything and everything is attainable you just have to go for it! Thank you so much for having me and I look forward to our next interview! Quick shout out to God and my loving and amazing family! You guys mean the world to me
