Model Files : Ringo Lukas

Screen Shot 2014-12-10 at 2.55.56 PMBeyond the runways of Paris and Milan lies the alternate lives of models. German model and musician Ringo Lukas is one of the latest male models that I’ve become intrigued with. From his simple and linear ink, chiseled cheekbones each shoot he does is giving me such inspiration. He’s modeled for Saint Laurent and Lanvin in the past seasons. Represented in Cologne by Tomorrow Is Another Day, I would love the chance to shoot with him one day. For now, let’s take a deeper look into his monochromatic style and impressive editorial resume.

Menswear Monday : Evan Peters

evan-peters-on-quicksilvers-look-in-x-men-days-of-future-pastYes, it’s Tate. If you watch American Horror Story then you will totally get this post. Over the past four seasons actor Evan Peters has played a multitude of characters all from the anthology series by Ryan Murphy. He’s been a depressed grunge teenager, a suspected serial killer, a frat boy Frankenstein and now in the current Freak Show season, he’s just Jimmy Darling.

One of the reasons I like Evan Peters so much is his impressive dossier of characters in such a short period of time. Completely adapting to the environment and decade almost seems like such an ease.  He’s engaged to Emma Roberts, a fellow cast mate. Also, he doesn’t do many shoots but the ones I’ve seen are pretty badass.

Model File : Oskari Nyyssölä

4In my usual browse for male model muses (and from suggestions on the Facebook page) I found Finnish model Oskari Nyyssölä. He’s signed with Nisch Management in Sweden and is slowly making the rounds of editorials and publications. While he is a trained ballet dancer, there is something quite rugged and mysterious behind him. I hope we’ll be seeing more of him soon.

Meet Skateboarder Ben Nordberg

tumblr_mxs5pf0QWn1s62g0ko1_1280

It seems that the skateboarder-model hybrid is reaching its pinnacle in the world of fashion these days. Much like the musician-model or actor-model days of the 80s and 90s. Since living in California I’ve been more influenced by skateboarders as models. Not models in the traditional sense of an editorial way but more of a muse and inspirational figure that inspires photographers.

Ben Nordberg is a British born skateboarder for Flip Skateboards. He grew up in Bath, England and started skating at age eleven. Now he’s based in Los Angeles, one of the skating meccas and doing some shoots along the way. Not only do I love his ‘off duty’ style, but his editorial work is pretty dope too.

Meet the Model: Kai Hillebrand

Katie-McCurdy_Kai_01

German born model Kai Hillebrand is just one of new faces that is hitting the ground this year in the fashion industry. In a recent interview for Bite Magazine he mentions his love of skating since he was 13 and his need for just bacon, eggs, cheese, and coffee for breakfast. Oh, and not to forget the cigarette. Lensed by Katie McCurdy these simple and easy portraits give a quick window into one of my season favorites on the mens side.

Model Files: Sylvester Ulv Henriksen

tumblr_lsw7prEjIR1qazzlco1_500

One of my most recent discoveries is 20 year old Danish model, Sylvester Ulv Henriksen. He’s represented all over Europe but his mother agency is Unique Models in Denmark. A true chameleon in every sense of the word, he was discovered online by a scout when he was 15. Since then he’s modeled in Balenciaga campaigns and appeared in editorials photographed by some of the top industry leaders in the fashion world. This only further cements my desire to do more traveling and shooting in Scandinavia.

Fashion Grunge Editorial #24: The Lost World

TitlePage_TLW

 

As some of you may know I’m obsessed with abandoned places. If I could take an entire year off of my life and travel and explore now deserted places I would. Maybe that’s a thought. We traveled out to the desert of California to an old abandoned waterpark and shot this editorial. We’ve got a video coming soon as well.

It was pretty eerie being in a place that used to be filled with so much light that is now left with graffiti and fragments. Maybe you can see into this “lost world” to see what was there and imagine your own story.
