There is a lot of talent around the world, and as I travel regularly throughout the Americas, I am always looking for models who embody the best of what each destination has to offer. That’s why modelJOCK.com has created a new title, “Mr. ModelJOCK,” to recognize some of the best talent on an international level.
The first winner of this title is Edgar Castillo, who you will be seeing in the coming weeks and months on both modelJOCK.com and the companion site, portfolioLATINO.com, in both photos and videos. This Panamanian fitness model and performer represents the best of what it means to be a modelJOCK. Read on to find out what it takes to win this kind of recognition.
• A well-maintained body. Edgar stays in shape through a well-planned fitness regimen that also includes healthy eating.
• Personality and presence. Being a model is more than just having a great body. Edgar has excellent presence not only as a model, but also as an actor and host in front of TV and video cameras (you’ll get to see samples of his on-air personality in the weeks ahead).
• Creativity and professionalism. To be a truly successful modelJOCK, you need creativity and imagination. Edgar displays the ability to develop his own concepts and poses, and is open-minded about doing what it takes to create the best possible shots. He also exhibits great professionalism; working in a professional and responsible manner on each assignment and shoot.
• Diversity in experience, talent, and background. Not only is Edgar experienced and talented in modeling, acting and fitness. He also has a background that fully represents the richness and diversity of Panama and the Americas as a whole. His unique look is the result of his family’s heritage, which includes both European, indigenous Panamanian and Japanese roots.
If Panama is, as they sometimes say, the place where all the Americas come together, then Edgar is perhaps one of the best examples of how the world can come together, with impressive results. Let’s congratulate Edgar for his title, achievements and excellent work. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of him soon in many more places.
