Hosted Group Shoot

Sun 03 Nov 2019 - 11:31 PM

This weekend was our monthly group shoot hosted by Katie Green! The chosen themes were 'Winter'and 'Around the world' which was very fun. I went along to the Saturday 2nd November afternoon shoot with Shannan, Jersey, Lilly and Charlotte. Everyone made such a Great effort for both themes. Everyone enjoyed themselves and had lots of fun. I found it really helpful having Katie Green there with us helping to encourage us and she understood my concerns i had too. I really enjoyed this shoot, i enjoyed it the most out of all the shoots i have had so far. I am really looking forward to my next shoot and the future, to see what it brings. I just want to say well done to everyone for the great effort put in over this weekend.

Beauty or Beast

Fri 11 Oct 2019 - 8:28 PM

On Sunday the 6th of october our monthly group shoot theme was beauty or beast. I was really excited about this shoot as my mum and i came up with the idea of doing both, beauty and beast. My makeup was quite creative as was some of the other models and they all looked great. I used some props with my shoot, which made the shots look really good. Everyone had fun with this one and i really enjoyed it and would love to do another similar shoot in the future. Here are a couple of my shots to show my beauty and beast side.

Beauty or Beast!

Wed 09 Oct 2019 - 7:03 PM

Last Weekend we hosted another monthly group shoot! Our theme was Beauty or Beast. This was a really challenging theme and I think that everyone stepped up to the job! Everyone knew what they were gong for, whether it was beauty, beast or even both! Some models decided beast wasn't for them so they stuck to beauty and we had some really good shots! Others thought they would realise their inner beast over the weekend and they came out with really creative shots! Some I would even be scared of too! We had a variety of characters appear over the weekend..snakes, lions, wolves and even mummies! It was really cool. What I really enjoyed about the shoot was how creative you could get and how free you are. With the monthly themes they really show how original models are. You can really get into it!

September Catwalk!

Mon 23 Sep 2019 - 6:51 PM

Hey everyone, so yesterday we had our last catwalk for this year coached by Katie Green and it was definitely one of the best yet. Charlotte Brown, one of our elite models, decided on the themes for the outfits this time and there were some amazing ideas such as denim, oriental, day and the races and big and baggy, which all worked really well. We had quite a few newer models on yesterday’s session such as Tegan Wyatt, Millie Shedrick, Lily Roberts, Tegan Brooks and Aimee Chaplin but they all took on board Katie’s direction and advice and should be very proud of themselves because they did so well. Of course well done to all the other models as well who always impress every time and work on what they could do better according to the online feedback they get from Katie. I will be looking forward to seeing familiar and new faces at the catwalk next year, but until then we can continue working on our creativity for October’s group shoot with the Beauty or Beast theme, and soon it will be time for the Christmas Party! Let’s see if anyone can beat the catwalk queen Erin Neild and win the award this year! x

September Group Shoot

Wed 11 Sep 2019 - 4:54 PM

The last weekend was our monthly group shoot and I can honestly say everyone was amazing! We had some great shots! It was a lovely couple of days in the studio. The theme we all collectively chose was ‘wear whatever you were given’. For some models this was a challenge and for others not so much! Every model had to make sure they could fit into their outfit - either with safety pins or something that could hold the outfit if it was too big or too small. The main reason we chose this theme is because at a casting you may have to do this so it was really good practice. Some of our models really thought about who they were giving their outfit to and some even thought about makeup!! All models had to make sure they had the right shoes and right underwear for anything predictable!

Updates!

Thu 29 Aug 2019 - 4:04 PM

Hey everyone! As summer is nearly over it is only right to look back and see how involved all the models got with their amazing location shots. This year was one of our best as all models explored their surroundings to try and look for a location that would give them the best possible shots. It gets harder every year to choose a location that nobody has done before but that makes it more exciting to have a look around. This year our models have been to forests, beaches, army camps, abandoned trains, towns and more to create a variety of styles within their shots. Coming up in September we also have our next catwalk training session hosted by Katie Green! This one will be hosted by one of our best girls Charlotte Brown and we are hoping to have all our models participate to make this one the best yet. No matter if you are brand new to our agency or have been here for 7 years Katie always goes back to basics to allow all models to have an equal chance to show off their skills on the Catwalk. We are hoping some of our newest models will be brave and attend this session as we have also had some amazing modelling workshops recently coached by Erin Neild and Callie Watts, showing them the core skills they need to know. To conclude I would like the say a huge well done to all the models that always put so much effort into their modelling to gain the most experience and to give themselves the best shot of a future in this career, and also a massive congratulations to all the models on their A level and GCSE results this year! You all did amazing and should be so proud of yourselves.
