5 Minutes with New Balance Ambassador, Spencer Elmer

Seen the latest drop from New Balance? The 997H just landed and one guy that’s been reppin’ them is Spencer Elmer (@elmofilms).

Spencer joined JD and New Balance for the ultimate campaign shoot, and we managed to steal 5 mins of his time for the low down on his career as an influencer!

How did you get into what you do?  

I started gaming online and uploading skateboarding videos when I was around 12 years old. I grew onto vlogging and have evolved through sharing my lifestyle whilst trying to be super transparent with my audience.

What has been the biggest high of your career so far?

My career never really had a point or event that boosted my channel as it’s been a very gradual growth. However, the loyalty has increased throughout the years. Being in Vogue and working on designing has made me transition more onto the style fashion content.

What makes you unique and independent?

I like to have a different connection with my audience, remaining 100% transparent with my emotions and events. When I dropped out of college to continue my journey, I made myself super vulnerable to a large audience which helped build a trust and loyalty with my viewers, as they’ve watched my journey alongside myself.

What advice would you give to others?

Stay true to you and don’t be scared to expose how you feel. I feel like it’s super important to not paint a perfect perception of yourself online, as younger viewers are quick to compare themselves and won’t be able to relate on an honest level.

How have the people around you helped you get to where you are today?  

I feel super lucky to be surrounded by such creative people in different career paths. The people around me have inspired and enhanced my journey whilst pushing me to try new things and branch out.
