I received a request today from the owner of Molinari Talent that moving forward only have their models work with Erika Lopatinsky. Erika has freed up her schedule to accommodate this. Models from Molinari Talent include:
Any photo dates that have beet set for the future with Molinari Talent models and other stylists will need to be rescheduled asap with Erika.
Florys Johnson contacted me today and has offered to do the hair and make-up for all of the models. She owns her own salon on Palm Ave [Salon Hrs 8 am - 8 pm], can be very flexible with her time, and is very experienced with creating high fashion hair and make-up looks.
She has agreed to also do her OWN HAIR & MAKE-UP when using her for the shoot, so you will not need to contact a separate stylist when working with her. She has shot with photographers all over the world, and is happy to provide tips to the student she works with. You will learn allot from shooting with her ;) She is flexible with her schedule.
Renee is a professional model that has taken a hiatus from the business for the past 4 years to open up her own mens boutique. She is looking to break back into the business, and looks great in lifestyle, high fashion and artsy. She can be very flexible with her schedule.
I have a fantastic surprise!!! I was able to pull some strings, and a dear friend has agreed to model for free. She appreciates that the students are creating their portfolio's and is happy to work with them, and provide advice. She is a plus side model signed to Wilhelmina's New York, Miami and LA divisions, and has been working as a paid model for 10 years, since she was 16! I will post her info in a bit.
NOT A PROFESSIONAL MODEL. Height 5'6". Great look though for both lifestyle and fashion. Instructed her to bring magazine tear sheets for any student she shoots with. I am waiting for her to call me to include her telephone nos in the blog.
Alicia is not a professional model, but is looking to break into the business. She has a very flexible schedule. Alicia has a great physique with slight muscle definition, and therefore fits better in the high fashion category. She is probably about 5'7'' tall.
PROFESSIONAL MODEL. Cierra is the model on the far left of the image, in front of the horse. This editorial spread was shot for the current issue of Scene Magazine. Her look tends to do better as a high fashion model. Schedule: works nights at Caragiulos, but can be flexible.
Dallas books both high fashion and lifestyle work. This is a busy time of year for her, but she has the following dates available - Nov 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th. She has agreed to work for images for her portfolio.
Presented by the Ringling College of Art & Designs photography department, a joint runway and photography show to be held at Ringling College on Tuesday December 1, 2009. Come to this blog for updates and more information as it becomes available. Hope to see you there!
