Discovering one’s passion is not an endeavor that bears results overnight. No one has ever been handed with a paper detailing which calling they should pursue. For others, it involves the process of trial and error, while for some, it takes immersion in a particular craft for people to realize that they have found what they love after all. Rae Serbeck, one of today’s rising models, hopped from one job to another and considered different careers before he found himself at home under the spotlight.
“For a few years, I had a very hard time finding what I was good at. I tried many different jobs, looked into schools to search for a career that I could spend my life doing — hopefully happily — but it seemed like nothing was really quite the right fit for me,” shares Rae Serbeck. His story may seem familiar to millions of people across the world, and that is because it is. Countless individuals have to contend with the painstaking journey of finding a career or hobby that best fits them.
After his best friend talked him into trying out for a runway male model opportunity, Rae Serbeck’s life direction lost vagueness and took a turn toward the modeling industry. That first-ever gig at the Utah Fashion Show run by L.A. Talent last December 2017 led to his current esteemed standing.
Over the past three years, Rae Serbeck has worked for different runway organizations, pivoting into modeling for a small agency called United Fashion Talent and then into freelance modeling. Today, leaving a crumb of exceptional work ethic behind him after each gig, he has managed to expand his network and prove that he is a must-watch star in the industry.
Rae Serbeck has modeled for casual clothing, fitness wear, shoe brands, sunglass companies, and even men’s jewelry stores. Gracing publications, he was first featured in a Utah-based magazine called Inspired Magazine last December 2019. Since then, more publications have showcased his high fashion pieces of work.
Included in his portfolio of career milestones is an acting job he did for Robbie Tripp’s music video, and the biggest, thus far, was his contribution to an international magazine. Personally approached by Mitch Royel, the owner of Elixir by Royel, Rae Serbeck made waves through this magazine not only as a model but also as a writer of a well-received 10-page article on bullying.
This year alone, Rae Serbeck has had his name printed and jotted down in 20 magazines. In the coming months, he looks forward to landing more cover pages and domestic and international features.
Widely acknowledged for his high fashion approach to modeling regular and casual streetwear and clothing, Rae Serbeck continues to impress. Setting his eyes on androgynous-centered and high fashion platforms, he is driven to further cementing his name in the industry. He vows to remain dedicated to the craft and a strict observer of professionalism on his way to take center stage. In the future, Rae Serbeck also hopes to break into the acting world and the human interest writing front and launch a clothing company that puts every dime it does not use to make clothing intended for charity donations.
