Internet Hollywood: When you decided modeling was going to be the thing you wanted to do how did everyone you know feel about it?

Grant: Thank you! Bernie is one of my choice photographers, Hes a total sweetheart. I started working with Bernie when I met him at a Group Shoot, and from there on out, we kind of clicked and I love watching his work get more and more Radical as he goes along. Hes like a Family member too me as well. We disagree sometimes. Believe me I am a huge BRAT! haha. But His work is amazing; I am not just saying that either. He is fun and charming to work with. I suggest you take the time to work with him. But be a little understanding hes a Dad of 3! He is a fantastic person.
