Modeling — which started by extension of his work to develop his acting portfolio in his youth — has grown into a key pillar of Justin’s resume. Justin’s key start in the modeling world came in his youth through his dance company where his look gained the attention of a number of agency’s including World of Kids, The Green Agency, and The Diamond Agency whom he worked with to secure a number of modeling opportunities. His professional modeling training came along the way as he learned the techniques that turned 2-hour photo shoots into 20-minute photo shoots, in the process making him a go-to choice for many modeling projects. Justin draws his work ethic for and understanding of modeling from some of the most famous and hardest-working male models in history, including Mark Vanderloo, Marcus Schenkenberg, Tyson Beckford, and Hoyt Richards. He considers their styles and what they were able to accomplish in front of the camera to be a blueprint for how to maximize his own success.
Justin’s modeling history spans the gamut of the modeling world: He’s served as the main face of full clothing lines including Rush Couture and for specific brands at major companies like JC Penny’s. He has been the feature of a number of in-store advertisements at Kohl’s, K-Mart, Macy’s, Target and Sears, where his professionalism and efficiency made him a popular choice for repeat work. His image has been published in an array of major US magazines over the years including People, Glamour, and Good Housekeeping. His ethnic background even opened up the international audience for him by way of Univision and Telemundo’s ‘Un Nuevo Dia’ Morning Show. He’s even done a few internet ads and been placed on billboards around New York to round out his portfolio.
If singing, dancing and fitness make him a “triple threat”, then modeling makes him a “quadruple threat”!
