5 Minutes With Jordan

3 February 2012

We caught up with model and skater boy Jordan Taylor (Elite) as he lets us into the world of all things Jordan in this 5 Minutes With interview. Be sure to check out Jordan's feature in "Closer" if you missed it last month!

Tell us what you're currently up to and any exciting projects you've got going on.
Well I should be heading off to Shanghai soon which will be amazing, really looking forward to it!

What inspires you and why?
Travelling inspires me, it's the main reason I started modeling so I could see all of the amazing places of the world.

What do you do when you're not working?
When I'm not working I mainly skate, draw fucked up stuff, and go to hardcore shows or tear around on my bike. I also research a lot of stuff, mainly the old skate scene and things of the occult.

Who would be your ultimate brand, designer or photographer to work with?
I really like the brands in Japan, especially the ones based around skateboarding, biker and lowrider styles. It's definitely interesting to shoot for!

What's the best piece of advise you have ever had?
The best piece advise I've heard is "hold it there with loads of pressure" - I landed on my face when trying to do a handrail whilst wasted...

Thanks to Jordan who is still looking as gorgeous as ever.
