Matthieu Charneau is a French model, born in Paris in November 1988. He has now an international audience and was shot by some of the most famous photographer including the legendary Rick Day.
Who is Matthieu? He is a quiet guy from Chateauroux, a small town in Central France. And as we say in France this place is “provincial” far from the busy and exciting and fashionable life of Paris the capital city.
After passing a A level in Science then studying for a degree in food-processing industry, but he was not really satisfied with a possible scientific career, so he decided to run for a more artistic future, so Matthieu Charneau studied to become an hairdresser.
In September 2010 he run the Mister Gay 2010 competition organized by the gay French magazine TETU, and easily won the title of Mister Gay 2010! The pictures for the magazine shot by Pascal PPRL, a French photographer made Matthieu famous and was the start of his career in the modeling.
As mentioned, Matthieu had the chance to work with Rick Day (see the interview of Matthieu about his shooting with Rick Day at the end of this other post by clicking HERE). He also featured a special issue of MUTO by Exterface.
