My name is Dillon Thomas, I am 19 years old. I am seeking to collaborate with other artists and Photographers. I am open to TFP or work for experience opportunity.
I am slim, athletic build. I work out daily as I am employed as a gymnastic coach and prior to that a gymnast for most of my life, I also danced competitively and at age 14 I began dancing, Lite Feet, a NYC born battle dance. I volunteered for our community gang prevention program and we got many of our community "at risk" youth to participate in Lite Feet dance. Transitioning from athlete to dancer and now to model has been a natural progression for me. Before I turn 20 I have been a state champion athlete, a competitive dancer, a coach employed for almost 4 years and a community organizer, I believe my job, my volunteer work and my focus on the arts demonstrate I am responsible and determined. Gymnastics allowed me to push myself and become determined and driven. From dance I gained grace, balance and rhythm. I bring all these experiences and skills as I take this next step and begin the journey of becoming the photographers muse. And just as the transition from athlete to dancer I am exploring movement as artistic expression and am confident that this is the right path for me to explore. I realize I am young but I am hungry, I am teachable and I am open to creative collaborations and stretching the limits.
I have a profound passion for performing and I have been humbled, the young kids I coach or mentored to dance have changed me, I thought I was there to inspire them but it was I who was inpired. They are my legacy.
I have worked with several photographers and ideally want to work with an array of photographers for mutual portfolio build. My goal on MM is to share the work I have done and ideally to meet and collaborate with photographers and other models.
