This edition of Model Talk finds the easygoing Jonathan Ackley in PUMP! underwear, a brand which he wastes no time singing the praises of, specifically for the enhancing lift that their briefs provide just where he needs it. Jonathan is 24 years old and he hails from Austin, Texas where, in addition to his modeling pursuits, he also tends bar at Highland Lounge.
Notably, Jonathan recently released a single, “The Beast is Out,” and the title of that song seems harmonious with the empowering message he has for young or aspiring models. It’s important, Jonathan says, to remember that as the model, you are in control. Though photographers may request you to do things that you’re uncomfortable with, it’s important to keep in mind that you can say no.
Jonathan sticks to a self-described vigorous workout routine, especially before shoots, when if he doesn’t work out he doesn’t feel his best. This is somewhat at odds with the fact that his fridge may have a few too many less-than-healthy foods. In general, though, he tries to balance the good with the bad, citing one of his favorite meals: a spinach a salad with baked chicken, tomatoes, avocado, and Kalamata olives (his favorite).
Real people who are comfortable in their own skin are Jonathan’s favorite kind of people to meet. They’re not afraid to be unique, to be themselves, to be different. They may even have the opportunity to hear him belt out his favorite karaoke jams, which you can learn about by watching the video below.
