Model of the Week: Adam Butcher


Adam Butcher

Elmer Olsen Model Management



Place of Origin:
Oakville, ON

Ethnic Origin:
1/2 Irish 1/2 German


How discovered:
I walked into Elmer Olsen during their open call hours. They told me that I had great potential and that they would love to work with me, but that I needed to work on a few things. At that point I felt extremely focused and kept in touch with my progress. 5 weeks later I was in for digitals that ended up getting me the Prada show!

Favorite things:
Nature, storms, expansive thinking/ideas, incomprehensible optimism, losing yourself in the moment, laughing until you cry.

Favorite music, band:
Van Morrison, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, James Taylor

Favorite movie, tv show:
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louis, Forrest Gump, Life of Pi, School of Rock.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Miuccia Prada/CK Euphoria/Nivea

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I’d be making music with friends.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Awkward pauses. It’s not that I’m aloof, I’m simply at peace with the stillness.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My first modelling gig was in Milan for Prada. My agency called me and said “pack your bags, you’re flying to Milan tomorrow!” I absolutely loved every minute of it! I had a big smile on my face the whole time except for when I was on the runway. Hopefully this is just the beginning.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing about Oakville, Ontario is the big and beautiful Oak trees. Now that I don’t live in Oakville, the best thing about spending time there is being amongst friends and family.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I’d really love to model for Topman. I love their style and I think it suits me well. I’d be honoured to work with them. I’m all about gaining experience so the more designers and photographers I get the opportunity to work with, the better!

Place you would love to visit:
I’d love to visit Paris, France. It seems like a very beautiful place to soak in the scenery, excite the senses with exquisite cuisine and enjoy a certain “joie de vivre” that much of Western society seems to have forgotten.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Challenging myself to run faster and longer. Also, challenging myself to be bold and try new things. Overcoming fear and obstacles.

  • crushing on Adam

    Wow, he is such a charming man. He is smart and I just want to get to know him better, seems like he has a lot to say. I also like how he isn’t very typical looking, his bone structure is amazing…… I totally have a crush on him.

  • Michael

    He is amazing!! Perfect nose and he is so handsome! Incredible

  • Scott

    I like this guy! He has as good look and hes 25 and just starting! His best features are his cheek bones, chin, and eye shape! He actually has a Prada look. Similar feel to Harry Goodwin. It’ll be cool to see how his career progresses.

  • S.

    Oh my. Lovely. Just lovely. I usually prefer slimer and more androgynous kids, but this is a handsome man all the way through. I enjoyed his answers too. Hope him all the best for him.

  • A.

    Very interesting face and I totally loved his answers. He seems to have a very interesting personality which obviously is a plus. And working with Prada is major, so hopefully many doors will open to him in the future.

  • Amy

    Adam is my number one favourite.

  • He has that “classic” face that gets all the money.

  • Zoe

    I’m from Oakville as well, sure wish I had seen him around town… What phenomenal bone structure, and he sounds like an intriguing individual. Well done Canada!

  • Ovi
