Javier Gomez has his eye on fashion.
The former cover model spent time in front of the camera striking a pose, but now, he's behind the lens as one of the world's most sought after fine art photographers.
“I love movement. I love colors as well," Gomez says. "It depends. You never know where you will get inspired. New York has a different vibe, a different energy."
The New York-based photographer has published two books featuring his best works. One is called "Visual Vibrations". The other is called "Dimensions".
He's a darling of the fashion industry. Fashion insiders keep an eye on his work when they look for inspiration.
"I've been approached by designers that want to use my patterns on their fabrics, which is interesting," Gomez says.
He's most proud of a piece of work that President Bill Clinton now owns.
You can see Javier's work just about anywhere, even in high-end interior design offices.
"We love having Javier’s art in our space because it really punctuates our furnishings, and it just seems like a natural fit," says Robert Passal, an interior designer.
With an eye for design, color and style, Javier Gomez is trendsetting both on and off the runway.
