Our Model Watch feature today presents our latest discovery, the fabulous Steve Raider.
Steve is a multi-talented 26 years man of Greek-Canadian origin and with a body to shame the gods.
He seems to have quite an artistic flair too and is an accomplished comic illustrator, his work appearing in several publications and winning him a featured spot in the annual Art Basel show in Miami Beach last December. You can see some of his work on Facebook – just follow the link in the credits.
No surprise here, Mr Raider is a keen sportsman. He has practised Taekwondo for the last 14 years and recently won the National Championship in Greece. He also devotes time to kick boxing, street fighting and spartan training. Which explains that powerful, sculpted body, the dynamic energy he emanates and his, yes, engagements as a fitness model.
But Steve is not just a brutal powerhouse. Chatting on-line he told me he is fascinated by cats. And there is no doubt a lot more about him we would be interested to find out!
Here are a few photographs from a recent collaboration with photographer Vagelis Valeodis and Greek underwear brand Modus Vivendi. Observe and admire!
