Daniel Collins is a Liberian fashion model based in the United States of America. “I don’t have a typical fairytale story about being discovered by a model scout on the streets of New York” he says over the phone from NY. “Modelling didn’t find me, I found it“. Dan’s passion for modelling began when he posted one of his photos on the social media platform “Facebook” and after receiving loads of comments and hits about looking like a model, he decided to try out professional modelling. Since getting into the industry, he has worked with a host of industry professionals, photographers like Carr and Dash photography and Vince Chase, has modelled for fashion shows and charity events like The Cheetah Outreach’s Hampton’s Fundraiser fashion show, The Mama Africa Program fashion show, Sarfo Of Styles, Virtuous Queen Fashions, Lavie Clothing inc, Jason Troisi and William Witherspoon Collections. One of Daniel’s most recent work as a model was featuring in a music video titled ‘Your Girl‘ by Liberian model, singer, actress and entrepreneur, Love Weah.
With plans to do more modelling in 2013, Daniel is just hitting his stride “I love modelling and the best advice I can give anyone is to be humble, hardworking, and passionate,” he says. “Chase your dreams, and always remember to give back to those who need it the most”.
