A horse rider since he was eight, it’s fit­ting West­field am­bas­sador Harnacke was scouted at an eques­trian event. “I went to watch some girl­friends at a show-jump­ing com­pe­ti­tion, and I was ap­proached by a Chic agent about mod­el­ling,” he re­calls. Turn to p91 to see why they were so im­pressed.

HOW DID OUR SPRING RAC­ING SHOOT IN THE STU­DIO GO?

It was a lot of fun. It was great work­ing with such an ex­pe­ri­enced and cre­ative team – they made me feel re­ally com­fort­able and re­laxed.

YOU’RE BACK IN AUS­TRALIA FOR WEST­FIELD’S ‘FRONT LINE’ CAM­PAIGN WITH OLLIE HEN­DER­SON, EMMA BAL­FOUR AND YAYA DENG. DID YOU EN­JOY WORK­ING ON IT?

Shoot­ing with the other am­bas­sadors was great – there is so much tal­ent here at home. I’d also en­cour­age ev­ery­one to jump on­line, check out the con­tent from all the am­bas­sadors and fol­low their jour­neys us­ing #jointhe­front­line.

NICE PLUG THERE. HOW DO YOU STAY IN SHAPE?

I try to keep my­self busy with things that I love and en­joy, like my horse rid­ing – and luck­ily that’s a pretty hard work­out.

GOT ANY GUILTY PLEA­SURES?

Where do I be­gin? I love ridicu­lously un­healthy desserts and I love carbs. I would take pasta over meat any day – I am part Ital­ian af­ter all. My friends call me ‘Potato’ be­cause I live on a spud diet.
