.Football Career.

Stephen James Hendry (born 4 December 1990), known professionally as Stephen James, is a British model. He is a former professional footballer and won international youth caps for Scotland.

A midfielder, Hendry was a member of the youth team at Brentford before his release in 2008. He went into the youth system at non-league club AFC Wimbledon, before making professional appearances with Cypriot First Division side Nea Salamis Famagusta. On 18 July 2010, Superleague Greece side Asteras Tripolis named Hendry in their 28 player squad to travel Australia for pre-season preparations, but he failed to win a contract.

International duties in October 2007, Hendry was called up to the Scotland U18 squad for a four-way international tournament in France. He made his international debut when he came on for Michael Graham after 65 minutes of the second match of the competition versus the hosts. He started in the final match against the United States, lasting 71 minutes of the 1–1 draw before being replaced by Craig Connell. He finished his international career with two caps.


.Modelling Takeover.

In September 2012, James was scouted in Barcelona by an Elite Model Management agent and has now become a full-time model. His work includes Calvin Klein, Takeshy Kurosawa, Philipp Plein, Diesel, XTI, GQ Germany, GQ Spain, Adon Magazine, ASOS, Men’s Health Magazine, El Pais Semanal and Windsor Smith plus much more but if we keep going, the list will be longer than the blog.

His agencies include Elite Model Management (Paris, Barcelona, Copenhagen), Unsigned Group (London), I Love Models (Milan) and Wilhelmina Models (New York, Los Angeles). James’ modelling career has been highly successful since late 2012, mostly in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan. He is best known for being the model to go to if you are looking for a certain look with his muscular physique, tattooed to the fullest gives him an edge on your regular model.
