We recently caught up with Tommie Cross to congratulate and interview him on his campaign with Samsung Galaxy S5!! We are so lucky to be able to represent such a down to earth, humble, and hardworking individual!
1. What was it like working for Samsung?
Samsung was an amazing client to work for. Great energy all around on set and super fun. Plus, I got to shoot with the awesome photographer Chris Craymer again... which is always fun!
2. How has New York changed you as a model?
New York hasn't really changed ME, I would say. I have become more aware of what jobs I am right for and which shoots I have the best chances of booking.
3. How has Page Parkes helped you along your journey?
Oh my, Page has been AMAZING with helping me and having my back these past 3 years. If I ever need anything, they do their best to make it happen. Page is ALWAYS behind me 100% percent in my decision making and has never doubted me. I'm so glad to have them in my corner and as my ,other agency. Love them to the moon and back!
4. Can you give any tips to models wanting to move or work in NYC?
For anyone wanting to move to the Big Apple to work, I would say, save, save, save! And get a side job right away! New York is one of the most expensive cities to live in and it's a daily grind. I would advise working at Hollister or Aeropostale on the side. They are very understanding of the model schedule. Also, dont let the fast pace of New York change you as a person. It's always good to remain humble and remember where you came from. Best of luck to those starting their journeys!!!
Thanks so much Tommie! We appreciate you taking the time to give us a glimpse of your life and a few wise words. Keep up the great work!!
