Braeden Wright is one of the genuinely good guys in male modeling. Always shining bright with his personality and smile, Braeden is as passionate about life and art as he is compassionate about people, pain, and suffering. On his social media, you get to see a life full of loyalty to his family and friends mixed with postings that showcase his musical talents and modeling work, and then Braeden might also toss in comments about today’s political happenings.
From Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, Braeden graduated with a degree in political science from the University of Alberta. The almost 6’3” tall brown-eyed talent was scouted by Mode Models in Alberta. His first big gig, he says, was walking for the Calvin Klein Spring/Summer Exclusive in Milan in the summer of 2014. He finds there is a creative thread between fashion and the arts – music, poetry, photography, and film.
Braeden has also walked for Versace, Polo/Ralph Lauren, Nick Graham, and Asaf Ganot. He has appeared in countless publications, working with numerous photographers, including Bruce Weber for VMAN. The handsome Canadian appeared recently in the Tom Ford online campaign. He has representation in North America and Europe, and is currently based in LA. In addition to Mode Models, Braeden is with Soul Artist Management in NYC, Wilhelmina in LA, MiLK Management in London, Front Management in Miami, and Elite in Toronto.
His advice to other rising models, “There is a power in authenticity. Know exactly where you fit in, who you are and who you need to be. Be the best version of yourself possible.”
Braeden is also a recording artist. “WHAT ONCE WAS GOLD (a Demo Sessions Extended Play)” will be released independently by Braeden this Spring. You will love his soulful vocal chops! It will be available on various streaming outlets. The multi-talented musician can also play guitar and drums and program synthesizer sounds. Be sure to check out Braeden on Youtube (link below).
Recently, Braeden (and his amazing abs) posed for photographer David Wagner in Los Angeles. Here is the shoot, including a few exclusives for PnV:
