“ Working with Niel Kirk has benn a great experience. The man has a wealth of experience to offer. The whole GQ team, especially Jason Basson were really helpful,” he said. Things might be different there but he remains optimistic and advices other in the industry in Kenya to join him.
“ Modelling in Cape Town is a whole different ball game. The competition is intense and everyone is constantly working out to maintain that international standard. I would advice anyone looking to get into the modeling world to try it out in Cape Town ,” says Ephy.
