“Yes, I was extremely excited [about winning] and so happy that hundreds of people got behind me to support me through the competition. I can honestly say it has been my biggest achievement to date, to embrace the cover of VanityHype is overwhelming to say the least. A massive thank you to VanityHype for picking me to enter.
“I would like to say a big thank you to every single person that took the time to vote for me, it means so much that I have been lucky enough to have this experience when I’m just an ordinary guy. Thank you!

“Scott is such a down to earth guy and very easy-going which made the shoot even better. I didn’t enjoy it when the mua poured water all over me on the location set for the wet shots, ha ha – I was freezing! I liked it really… I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the shoot we did and think Scott is a brilliant photographer that captured some great photos.
“I’m currently in Thailand, Phuket and it is hot! The local people are so nice and welcoming. Trying out the different local cuisines is amazing, so many different tastes and spices. We hired a boat to go and see the different islands where James Bond was filmed and the movie The Beach, and they are exotic, like nothing I have ever seen before – white sand, green clear sea. I’m very lucky I can come to a place like this.”
