The Making of a Male Super Model: Travis Smith.
This is the story of Travis Smith, who I discovered as a teenager sitting in a food court in a Hawaiii mall. Travis went from a shy, unknown teenager in Hawaii still in braces modeling casual clothes for print to becoming an international fashion sensation walking for Versace, Calvin Klein and Missoni, gracing the covers of three fashion magazines, and shooting a string of high profile editorials for most of the "bibles" of the industry: GQ, Harper's Bazaar, Esquire, V Man, Arena Homme +, Interview, Vogue Hommes, Details and L'Officiel Hommes.
He is now represented around the world by the top modeling agencies. He became a star almost overnight when he appeared in a Paris fashion publication modeling in a very striking and memorable editorial. He has never looked back.
