Adam Fletcher: A Captured Point In Time

When researching London's Adam Fletcher there were a couple of themes that remained consistent. Almost every site that profiled the 25 year old talked about his intelligence and what a great guy he was. What also struck me was Adam's willingness to speak his mind and break convention. Adam isn't a fan of rules and some of his quotes are as fun and thought provoking as one of Adams' inspirations, writer Hunter S. Thompson.

'People get wrapped up in the routine of life and they forget that we’re on a spinning planet in the middle of space. There is more to life than structure. I just like to float about'
Adam Fletcher

You can tell from Adam's images that he obviously takes health and fitness seriously. Adam also has a strong desire to be an inspiration to others. For that reason I truly love and respect the quote above. So many in the world of fitness push structure and routine in almost a fear based way. Although obviously Adam knows their importance, I love how he is also realistic about it and how perfection is not the ultimate goal, that there are other things equally important.

'I have already converted a goth alcoholic into my strict diet, in fact he begged me to let him do it.'

Adam has a way of easing people in, inspiring in a non intimidating way. Most importantly, Adam also shows you that you can continue to live your life and not have to give up everything you love.

'Remember you can have one blow out day a week, hold everything your waiting for this day. Gives you something to look forwards to!'

Adam's positive attitude helped earlier this month when he was due to head to The States for work. Adam had been working hard the previous two months getting ready for the shoots. On the way to the airport he lost his passport. Disappointment and frustration were present, but short lived as Adam went on to find a way make the best of the situation and use the time productively at home.

'Modeling is a very adventures, world of judgment and opinions, nobody but the model really knows the full tale of the capture., The only thing that really tells the tale for me and thinking about the training that went into the shot. Did I eat one too many flapjacks, could my shape have been better. All I know is that from each shot there is a captured point in time that brings back a memory.Life is a memory; without memory's we have no life. So keep making memories....'
