The shocking transformation of this insecure man who became a model

This British man managed to overcome his self-consciousness, his complexes and is now a model that everyone is going crazy about.

After spending a good part of his life being unhappy with how he looked, one day, Gwilym Pugh decided to take matters into his own hands and radically change his life.

A former insurance salesman who felt uncomfortable in his own skin, this thirty-year-old from Wales decided to give up everything to achieve his dreams. After quitting his boring job that he wasn’t happy with, Gwilym then dedicated five years of his life to completely changing himself which ended up opening many doors for him and helped him find success.

Lonnnnnng #TBT to nearly 3 years ago today when I spent some time in the studio with the man behind the book “Back to Amy”, capturing Amy Winehouse before she was famous, @charlesmoriarty. I remember rain was absolutely pissing down outside and I couldn’t find the studio so I turned up looking like a disheveled drowned rat. Charles has a talent in capturing people in their most natural and organic state so this actually worked out pretty well! . . . . . #throwbackthursday #throwback #portraitphotography #blackandwhite #moodyportraits #gingerbeard #studiophotography #charlesmoriarty #amywinehouse #beardstyle #menwithink #guyswithink #tattooedmen #sleevetattoo #beardandtattoos #chestpiecetattoo #diesel

At that time, I was pretty overweight, working 12 hours a day, plagued with injuries which meant I couldn’t train at all. The business was doing okay, but I decided I needed to get my life in order and wanted to get healthy again.

Revealed the 33-year-old who is now very in demand in the world of fashion.

After signing his first contract for the Red Hot 100 calendar, it didn’t take Gwilym Pugh very long to be picked up by the prestigious London agency AMCK Models. He has since worked for Diesel, Vans, GQ magazine and even David Beckham who chose this beautiful man who looks like a Viking to represent his cosmetics brand House99.

The model also has an Instagram account which nowadays has more than 300,000 followers who use it as inspiration on how to succeed in their own goals.
