Natalie, Doyel and Salem for the Kely Spring Summer ’14 Collection

We’ve got a bit of a Kely Support Group theme going on this week (and there’s one more post tomorrow, to introduce Henry, who was part of their Fashion Show last weekend).

Today, we’d like to share with you the fantastic photos taken by Matryoshka for Kely’s look book featuring the wonderful designs from the students who were part of the “Seeing the Possibilities” program. The models are Natalie, Salem and Doyel (and we’ll be introducing Doyel very soon). But first, here are the credits:

Salem in the US for American Eagle

Today began with some messages from Salem, who landed in the US over the weekend to take part in a shoot with American Eagle for their 2014 Back to School campaign in Pittsburgh, American Eagle’s corporate home. This is a fantastic opportunity for Salem, who’ll be working with a great team – and it’s certainly worth mentioning that he’s the first ever model from outside the US to take part in one of American Eagle’s US campaigns!

There’s lots of confidentiality around the shoot, so we won’t be able to show you any behind the scenes images, but here’s a couple of snaps from outside the shoot, showing Salem hanging out with some of the other male models. And just underneath, we have some shots taken by Wallace Leung for Salem’s portfolio ahead of his trip.

This week at 360 Degree Models

In the last few days, we’ve introduced you to Gaspar, Adji, Stefan and Louis – and there are more fantastic new and experienced models on the way in the next week or so. As you’ll have seen, we represent models of all cultural backgrounds – in fact, the cultural diversity on our model board is something we’re quite proud of.

A number of our models are shooting this week: Sydney is already doing a great job of keeping our newest client well ahead of its shooting schedule (well done, Sydney!), Ben and one of our newest Asian male models, Will (we’ll introduce him to you very soon), are getting ready for a shoot styled by the amazing Kenneth Wong (one of Hong kong’s top fashion stylists); Elektra, Salem, Kaitlin and another new Asian model, Joyce, will also be in front of the cameras in the next few days; and Louis is up for a movie role. We’re also wishing Sophie well for a lookbook casting today.

Our website adjustments have all been completed, and we’re in the process of uploading images to the individual model pages – they’ll be appearing gradually over the next week, so please be patient. You’ll be able to see the portfolios of all of our models very soon.

Finally, open casting this month is on Saturday February 15 and Saturday February 22 from 2pm – 5pm, so please get in touch if you think you have modeling potential. We already have a long list of people to see, so let us know through info@360degreemodels.com if you’re planning to come in, and we’ll let you know the best time.

And to finish off, here’s a picture of Sydney - and make sure you take a look at her introduction post, if you haven’t seen it yet.

Tips for packing your wardrobe for a photo shoot

Joyce and Will, two of our new and as yet unseen models, are heading off to test shoots this week, and Ben, Kaitlin, Elektra, Salem and Sydney will also be spending time in front of the camera. That means it’s a good time to share some advice on packing wardrobe for a shoot.

While paid shoots will generally have wardrobe to spare, models will usually need to pack their own wardrobe for test shoots. And sometimes, even on paid shoots, models will be asked to bring “supplemental items” (as was the case with Tyler last week). Whatever it is that you need to bring along, the bottom line is this – if you want to make sure you look your best, packing properly is essential.

The most important thing to remember is to never toss all of your clothes, shoes and accessories into a backpack (male models are usually more prone to this than female models). Doing this is likely to mean wrinkled clothes and difficulty in finding what you need. And there’s no guarantee that there’ll be a steamer available to get rid of the wrinkles.

So, here are some items that are worth investing in:

1. A Hanging Garment Bag – you can keep your clothes on a hanger, which decreases the chances of them getting wrinkled. Make sure to write your name on your garment bags as well so that it is easily recognizable.

2. Tote Bag - These come in a variety of sizes and are ideal for transporting small wardrobe options that you don’t mind getting wrinkled, like swimsuits. They’re also great for housing your accessories/jewelry and change of underwear.

3. Small Rolling Suitcase – great for transporting shoes! A rolling suitcase that is small enough to hold several pairs of shoes is great when heading to and from locations – and it avoids putting your shoes into contact with your clothing, which could result in stains.

4. Regular Luggage Suitcase – better than a backpack, but not by much: you still need to fold your clothes, which means getting wrinkles. But if this is all you have available in the meantime, it will help keep your clothes in one place and stop them from getting dirty or mixed up with other people’s things.

Introducing Salem

After a couple of days of introducing our female models. I’d like to introduce you to one of our new guys, Salem.

Salem is almost a new face – and by “almost” I mean that he was the lucky winner last year of the Project Live Your Life contest, sponsored by American Eagle, which will see him jetting off to New York sometime in the next couple of months to shoot for the American Eagle Outfitters Back To School Campaign 2014. Salem has provided us with a selection of his images, and we’ll be putting him in front of the camera again very soon to help him build up his portfolio before his New York trip.
