To StarCentral’s Sexiest Man of the Month for March 2010, Landon Falgoust, staying grounded in the modeling industry is about believing that it’s “…more about the person inside…having the looks is only a plus.” And he certainly has the looks. He was signed on with CITY model management in San Francisco not long after moving to California from New Orleans. One of his new friends was signed with the agency and had asked him is he was interested. After thinking “…what will it hurt…”, Landon found himself hired as a model.
“I would never have thought of being a model…” But Landon was fascinated with the industry and found that he liked being in front of the camera. Being himself and getting the “…most natural shots…” are always a goal of his when he’s working, though he admits to some impatience getting the photos back! “…But in the end, it’s all worth it.” He has had a lot of interesting experiences since beginning work as a model. One of the most interesting was being approached by a photographer and asked if he would consider doing porn! Tongue-in-cheek, Landon “…kindly had to decline that offer…” But so far, the good outweighs the odd, and bad, experiences. Meeting his agents, Mimi and Sal (“…just wonderful people…) is one of the best. The chance to work with his brother, Kaylan is another. Landon was able to get Kaylan signed with CITY models as well. Talk about a family being lucky in the gene pool!
Outside of modeling, the 23 year old also tackles the wheelings and dealings of the real estate industry. It is where he envisions himself after his time in front of the camera. He enjoys playing sports, “…basketball, soccer, some football in mud/rain…”, typically anything that takes him outdoors. He boasts of a “…hell of a handstand. I can also do handstand pushups…” and from the look of those biceps, one is inclined to believe him! But his most surprising talent is in the kitchen. Growing up in New Orleans, Landon boasts that he can “…cook just about anything and make it phenomenal.” It’s a talent that comes in handy as he loves being healthy and it doesn’t hurt when trying to impress a lady!
With the support of his family, Landon sees himself in the modeling industry for a long while yet and not at all minding the journey. As his portfolio speaks of an ease with himself and the camera, it won’t be a stretch to believe that this is one model who can expect success.
