Ben Smith

Taking things back to the very beginning – how did it all start out for you?

Hey there! My name’s Ben Smith (a boring name I know), and I’m a 21-year-old student model. Born in Tokyo, Japan, and raised in a town called Maidenhead in the south of England. Tokyo, Japan? Yes, but still 100% British. I’m currently based in Manchester where I balance modeling with my university studies; a tricky one since I study mechanical engineering. I’ve spent a huge part of my life being devoted to sport: previously representing my country in the field of rowing. Since then, my hobbies have turned to food and fitness, which is what you’ll see spread across my social media.

How were you discovered/scouted? And what were your first feelings when you happened to sign your first contract?

I was approached by an agency at a young age, 16 or so, but at the time they thought I was going to be too tall. Yes, you can be too tall to be a model! I was already rising through six-foot and I didn’t look like slowing down. The agency wasn’t looking to invest their time in someone who wasn’t going to fit clothes in a few years’ time, so the idea was brushed aside. Fast track to when I moved to Manchester, at 19, I wasn’t too tall, and I’d stopped growing. The timing was right and so I found my place at my mother agency, Boss Model Management. Within a few months of starting up, my life flipped upside down. It was a bit of a whirlwind experience for me. Since starting I’ve signed with another five agencies, totaling to six worldwide, I have traveled abroad for work and collaborated with some incredibly talented individuals, many of whom I owe thanks for helping me get to where I am.
