Nici, 20 years old, has been collaborating with me since last year. I discovered him in a Zara shop in Munich while he was shopping with a friend and the day after our encounter I received an email from him telling me he was interested in becoming a model. He is known for his elegance by the way he speaks and more so by the way he walks. He simply has that in him, the bearing like that of an aristocrat. He studies Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University. He is 1.88 tall.Gabriel, 18 years old, is everybody’s darling probably because he truly is an extrovert type. There isn’t any dull moment with him. I discovered him in the metro station last year while he was looking in front of a mirror of an automatic photo booth with his girlfriend. He sings and plays guitar and he is proud having a musical band of his own which he named “The Charles”. He is 1.86 tall. Nick, 19 years old, wants to be a kindergarten teacher and I am sure he will be a good one because of his warm personality. I discovered him in downtown Munich while he was window-shopping with a friend. He was quick in sending me an email that he was interested in modeling. It only took him just six hours to decide. He is 1.86 tall. Marc, 19 years old, was discovered in a clothing shop where he works in Munich. I can still remember his reaction when I approached him if he would be interested, a reaction of excitement and at the same time disbelief. I call him the “Ray-ban Man” because when he wears his Ray-ban sunglasses, it gives me the impression that the brand was created exactly for him. Later I will post one photo of him with his sunglasses. He is 1.90 tall. Tobias will soon be 18 years old. I approached him in the metro station and his reaction was with total excitement because it happened on a very stressful day for him. He was the quickest in sending me an email and if I can remember, it took him four hours to decide. Once I posted his photo on Instagram, and immediately there were two comments on him, that they want to be his fans! Maybe to put up a fan club for him would not be bad. Tobias is 1.86 tall. Raphael, 20 years old, was also approached at the Munich Central Station. He is half german, half belgian. He loves boxing as sports and if I am not mistaken, he also practices judo. But despite his interest in these sports, he remains a very soft-spoken person. He is 1.90 tall.
Yes, Manuel’s got what it takes to be a model. In reality, he is not the type who is conscious of his charm. He did not even know he had a perfect face for modeling till I told him about it. He is fun to work with, very down-to-earth, has no airs, and yet is very focused on his modeling career. He may be slow in answering my emails, which I always remind him jokingly, but during shooting, he is highly professional. The moment he faces the camera, he is all concentrated and knows what is expected of him. And the result of every photo session we do together comes always perfect.
Manuel, 19 years old, is a professional surfer and has already joined an international surfing competition. After I have asked him in early spring this year if he would be interested in modeling, it took him weeks to decide before he finally sent me an email to give it a try. He was praised by one casting director from London saying that he has all the qualities of a model, having the perfect face, eyes and mouth. He is chosen by Merryquant (MQ) Model Agency to attend castings in Paris for the upcoming fashion week this June. Manuel is 1.84 tall.
… and is now ready to join castings in Paris for the upcoming Men’s Fashion Week. Soon he will be sent to other castings in Milan, New York and London hoping that he will get recognized in Paris. The success of a model depends not only on his/her charm and personality but also on hard work. If one thinks modeling is pure glamour, well it is not. Glamour comes only after one has shown the willingness to succeed. Nici has signed a contract with MQ Model Agency and will now be officially represented. He is from Munich, Germany, is 20 years old, has brown eyes and brown hair and he measures 1,89 tall. He studies mechanical engineering at the Technical University in Munich.
and soon will be recognized as an international Model Agency.
Agnes B is one show I cannot manage to sneak into. So what do I do, I photograph the models who are having their short break outside the show. It is perhaps even more interesting because they are less pretentious, or so to speak, more natural. But who is Agnes B? She is a french designer whose career started back in the late 1960′s. To know more of her, check out this link: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2006/feb/19/shopping.fashion And not to forget the bystanders, the invited and the uninvited, trying to pass through security. These are the shots I love taking!
I did not know anything about John Lawrence Sullivan, the brand, till I came to his show just to realize that not only the collection was shockingly impressive, the man who designs the clothes is none other than Arashi Yanagawa, an ex-professional boxer. From boxing to fashion designing and with that touch of superb elegance in his clothes, how did it happen? Shocking, isn’t it? I mean positively shocking, of course. I hope this won’t be the first and the last that I am going to see his future collection because his clothes are definitely those that I want to fill the gaps in my wardrobe. I SIMPLY LOVE THEM! To capture each look, visit: http://www.fashionising.com/runway/b–john-lawrence-sullivan-mens-aw-14-mens-69175.html How the colours go well with the fabrics is incredibly perfect, and again and again, this is a collection that can flatter you from head to foot.
