J. Donte' has been modeling for the majority of his life. He has been privileged to work with several photographers and fashion establishments worldwide. I have choreographed and coordinated several runway and hair show productions.
Aside from just print work and runway experience, J. Donte' wears many hats: creative director, runway coach, event planner, show coordinator and many others!
Looking for any avenue of exposure.
“I am very knowledgeable about my craft and confident in my skills. I prefer runway work. However, I am aware of my possibilities due to my height. I am also a stylist and looking for work(more experience) in that endeavor.}
Ask J Donte' what he wants people to see when they see him walking down the runway, the top model answers, “My poetry in motion. I want them to see all of the fashion influences from Tyson Beckford, Eva Pigford to Tyra Banks. I WANT THEM TO REALLY SEE THE TALENT. I know that people love me as I am. Now I want them to understand me as a model. And that they will. Fashionably challenging and honest, J Donte' is more than a model, he strives to be a positive role model. He is everything you'd expect and more than you could have hoped for. He is a performer and a creative force to be reckoned with. His vibe is more mature, more graceful, and more passionate. This is a man who is clearly staking his claim in the fashion industry and, in the process, redefining expectations of who he is. A 30 year old Greenville,North Carolina native, J. Donte' has been active in the fashion world doing runway, print, web, pageantry, commercial, product, and promotional modeling.
His style is similar to a melting pot-its a conglomeration of everything. “It basically depends on the day. One day,I may look urban,the next, I may have a haute couture effect,then a Gothic look…It really just depends!!”

****Modeling is not a hobby for me...It's my passion, my job, my life!****
"Anyone can take a picture but it takes a True Model to perfect the emotions, feelings, and intensity that their image speaks out to you, to your soul!"
"My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny. "
"Whatever it is that you do, do it so that no man living, no man dead, and no man yet to be born can do it better."
