Philippe Brisson

Exclusively Fashion Magazine: How did you get discovered and who discovered you?

Philippe Brisson: People used to ask me if I was a model.  So I decided to go and see the agency Folio in Montreal when they had a open call and that was the start of my modeling career.

EFM: Was modeling something that you always wanted to do?

PB: I was a snowboarder, skateboarder bmx guy and I had no idea what modeling really was until I started doing it.

EFM: How long have you been a model?

PB: I started 6 years ago.  But, I think that anyone can have a picture taken....to put life and feeling into the picture is what it's about.  One day when I will eventually be on the top of my game, I will say that I am a model, until then, I am still learning and progressing.

EFM: Tell me something that you love about modeling?

PB: It's hard to tell only one thing!  But let's say that making my family proud is a good feeling.

EFM: How has modeling changed your life?

PB: After a few years of traveling, the biggest lesson I have learned is that what's inside is much more important than what you just see on the surface.  It's important to live a good life and be happy.

EFM: What is your favorite thing about being a part of Future Models family?

PB: Tricky question!!  Lets say the green portfolio books (LOL)....they are original and nice like everyone in the agency.

EFM: Do you have any friends that are models; who are they?

PB: Everybody is a friend...until they prove you wrong.

EFM: With modeling comes jet setting around the world; what was your most favorite city, country that you have been?

PB: Hmm, I really don't remember (LOL).

EFM: Before becoming a model; was there anything else that you wanted to be?

PB: At the end of my days I want to look back on my life and be proud and glad of everything I did, without a single regret....I want to be that guy!

EFM: What advice can you give to aspiring male models?

PB: Be ready, be patient, be mentally strong, and BE NICE!!!!
