Mitch Baker: “I got scouted in southgate mall in Edmonton, So I thought I would try my luck at something completely unpredictable”
03 Oct, 2011
Well, I am a canadian from Edmonton Alberta (home of the largest mall).
Growing, I spent the majority of my summers either out at the lake (water skiing, fishing, swimming) or going down to Kalispell Montana where my grandpa/grandma, uncle/aunt raced quarter horses. My personal interests are spending time with great friends/family. I like to be active yoga, swimming, the gym,reading a good book/ watching a great movie and good music.

Scouted in a mall
I got scouted in southgate mall in Edmonton, So I thought I would try my luck at something completely unpredictable.
Best thing for me is the people I have met, all different, all incredible, and being able to see places and culture backgrounds. I´d d never otherwise get to really experience.
My first test shooting was with a great friend of mine Miss Tina Chang. We are both from Edmonton and that´s where we first met! The shoot was hilarious, we still laugh at the images today. Very proud of Tina and what she’s accomplished, she now works in Dubai.
Working with photographers: excitement!
The excitement some photographers get during a shoot, and getting do something ridiculous. My preparation before a shoot is a good sleep and coffee and breakfast in the morning, always puts me off to a great start. Not going to lie, I got yelled at for eating catering when I was supposed to be in rehearsal…oops my bad.
Modeling world: women still rule
All things are much more exposed now I think, so maybe in that aspect we are gaining ground, but I still think female models rule the roos for now
I don’t really have favorite models, just people who I respect …Taylor Fuchs, he’s down to earth, doesn’t take things to seriously. Also Christy turlington.
The catwalks and backstages
Well, wearing heels at Rad Hourani is always interesting lol…surprisingly though they tell me I don’t walk half bad in them, probably because I manage not to fall on my a**, great show though fun people….and very very very organised.
I wouldn’t say I´m a fashionista lol. I like to keep things simple and clean, T shirt and dark jeans and a pair of Nike shoes.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
I would probably get really embarrassed or deny it lol….laugh at myself and not take it to seriously.
Show biz, fame, success, most important things for his life
Fame and success is feeling lie your accomplishing something (a goal, that seems unattainable but working at it till you feel somethings been achieved).
Most important things for his life
To some day be able to repay those who have helped me along the way
feeling admiration from friends and family (because everyone needs some sort of love and support…cheesy I know (but true) a feeling of accomplishment
Eat the tastiest food around…because my mood can change soooo much when a great meal is served, I can go from being Groucho Marx to feeling like a little kid in a candy store…and this is all in a matter of seconds
And see as many places in this world as possible
Dating X Love
The golden rule
Atracting someone´s attention
A blow horn
Having fun, enjoying life and the nastiest thing he´s ever done in a summer time season
I like to go to the beach…id say go skinny dipping but I don’t really think that’s all that nasty.
Fav body part and why
Ear lobe …because it feels like a gummy bear
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooool sexy moments (lol!)
In his IPOD

In his IPOD
I hate picking favorites
If you weren´t a model, u´d be…
A politician…lol no never could do that, maybe a yoga instructor.
Currently in London and loving every min.
