Maxwell Is Still Being Awesome

Our boy Max is on his way up to NYC for FW 2012 castings!!  We are wishing him good luck and many shows!!

On a side note…. of all the photographers that have shot Max, we love it that his NY agency, Major Model Management decided to use a self portrait that Max shot for an art project on the cover of his show card.  And its even cooler that the back of the card is shot by the  amazing Mikael Jansson for  Interview Magazine.  Thats good company to be keeping!

Freshly Scouted – Kathryn B

Say hello to new face Kathryn B of Green Bay WI.   Director of New Faces for MW, Brandis Ohlsson, decided to hold an open call for children last month to keep our kids board fresh.  Sometimes we will partner with a children’s related business to spread the word of the open call. This time  the call was hosted by Aymee Balison owner of  Sweetpeas in Green Bay.  While Brandis was meeting children she noticed a tall, gorgeous girl, who turned out to be Aymee’s daughter , Kathryn.  At 14 and 5’11” and with that angelic face we signed her to an exclusive contract and are in the process of development.  What you see below is her first test ever…( amazing) …. shot by Chicago photographer Meredith Morton  with hair and makeup by Kerre Berry.  Love this girl!

Brian R Walks at Paris FW

Congratulations are in order for one of our favorite fashion boys, Brian R.   Brian, who was discovered by and developed by our friend George Kartis, is having one hell of a fashion week this season.  Brian has walked for Hermes, Cerutti and Dries Van Noten, to name a few.  We LOVE it when the Virginia kids represent in Europe.  Great job, Brian!  Shots from the shows below.

Well Hello, Bill !

A big welcome to Bill T.,  a new addition to the Midwest office this week.  I tend to post the fashion kids on this blog,  but I think you’ll agree Bill is very easy on the eyes, swoon-worthy, in fact.   This is the type of model who can work for so many different types of clients…from apparel, to insurance, to pharma and on and on.  Super excited to get to work for Bill and make things happen for him!  Adorable.

The ladies in Milwaukee office  are killing it!

Scouted… just not on TV

As promised, a post about some of the girls involved in Scouted that were not used in an episode this season.  Some of these girls were freshly scouted, some I had met a few months prior, but all are lovely and were gracious enough to let E! film them, their families and their journey into modeling.

First is Noelle.  She is an all american beauty with a dynamite smile and equally dynamite body.  The networked loved the fact that she is a small town girl (her family is from a town near Lynchburg) and that she thought of Richmond as “the city”.  Her mom and dad are terrific people and I thank them for allowing me to work with Noelle.  We are still working on getting her tested, and developing her look, so check back with the MW website to see her grow.  Shot below by Todd Wright.

Next is Emily.  Emily had a great story in that one of my fashion guys, Max, goes to school with her and scouted her for me. He showed me some polaroids of her and we brought her in.  A 5’11” equestrian with a great personality, we loved her immediately .  Luis Aragon tested her for us (see below) and she looks amazing, even in a first test.

Caroline  is another beautiful blonde.  With mile high legs she is clearly a runway girl.  The entire family has been friends of MW for a long time and we have watched Caroline grow into an gorgeous young woman.  Legs for days… crazy. This photo from a recent shoot in Miami. Although Caroline was not used in the show, you did see her on the promos looking adorable.

Bronwyn is another girl they spent time with in Richmond.  Tall, with  a Cheryl Teigs type of beauty, we expect her to be a great commercial girl and her bubbly personality is just a bonus. Shot by Todd Wright

What most of you dont know is that we were also planning on having some of our men on Scouted.  We had just scouted Alex when the  producers came to town, and they LOVED Alex, (who would’nt… see the shot below , done just this week by Tim Coburn) but in the end, the agency E! went with , One Model Management, does not have a men’s board, so they cut all the boys at the last minute.

It’s amazing to how much footage was taken and how much time went into this show, and how little actually ends up on air.  We love the way the show turned out, but I wanted to give some props to these great girls and boys too. Looking forward to next season!

Scouted Finale – Well, that was fun!

Last night was the final episode of Scouted on E!  The season ended with both girls getting signed ( did you agree with Scott’s decision?) …an all around feel-good ending.

For those of you who have asked for updates, here’s the scoop on the girls we brought up for the show.  Amy & Kim Mervine, the twins from Virginia, are still modeling and building their portfolios. They have both booked work together and separately, and are becoming client favorites. After their episode, an agent from a top agency in NY called MW and asked to rep the girls in NY.  They are scheduled to be in NY last week of January.  As soon as the ink is dry on the contract, I’ll post who we signed them with.  Both girls will be working in NY, then looking at travel abroad for the summer.

Hallie H.  is a busy, busy girl. After her episode aired we were  swamped with calls from fashion photographers wanting to shoot her and she is taking advantage of the interest and building her book.  She will be meeting with agencies in NY in March and we are very confident she will sign with a top agency. After that the sky’s the limit for that girl . I am so proud of Hallie, finishing the commitment she made to her school and her parents before moving on to modeling. She is not only an amazing beauty, but has a wonderful character.   Stay tuned to see updates on her often, including some pretty spectacular shoots we have planned for her.

What some of you may not realize is that while E! was here filming me scout Richmond, they filmed the storys of many other girls.  I don’t know why some were featured on the show and some were not, that’ the network’s decision, but I do know that these other girls spent a good deal of time and energy being filmed for the show, and I’d like to introduce them too.

I will be doing a post on about 6 of those models tomorrow so you can meet them too!   Until then… !

New Face from Milwaukee – Jordan

Say hello to Jordan, freshly scouted by Brandis in our Midwest office.  Love her “sexy tomboy” vibe… and we all know how I feel about freckles!

This 5’10” beauty will be working on developing her look and her book with eyes on NY in the next few months.  Great work, Brandis!
