Model Files: Duncan Pyke

101

It’s late on a Thursday night, and while gathering inspiration and creating moodboards for my upcoming shoots I look to the modeling agencies for new faces to complete my concept. British model Duncan Pyke is one of the latest male models to catch my eye. Signed to Premier Models in London, his rugged but classic face is much loved all over the web it seems.  He reminds me a bit of Jack Kilmer with a mix of Edward Norton. Not a bad mix I’d say.

Stay Broke Shoot Film : Opening Ceremony Men’s Fall 2015

opening-ceremony-mens03Ok, so this is a bit of a departure form your regularly scheduled programming, but I just had to comment about the menswear collection from Opening Ceremony for Fall 2015. Over the past two years I’ve re-discovered my love for film photography. This includes creating an online community for it.

The designers of OC are great friends with photographer/director Spike Jonze and have since created a capsule in their line featuring some of his projects, outtakes, and contact sheets on their clothing. Noteable would be photos of Immediately this drew my eye. Hello, that contact sheet 3/4 length jacket! Another prominent design is the manipulation of the vintage Kodak logo. From an artistic standpoint and the blending of two mediums, color me impressed. Looks like I’ll be trying to get my hands on more menswear the next Fall season.

Style Crush: Matthew Gray Gubler

tumblr_static_style-hot-tea-tuesday-matthew-gray-gubler2

Aside from the usual grungy dudes that occupy space my subconscious, I do live for an awkward nerdy type guy. Case and point: Matthew Gray Gubler of the tv show Criminal Minds.  His first love is film making and since has directed seven episodes of Criminal Minds. Upon deeper exploration I discovered that he was also a model with DNA and has done some print modeling and runway work, and is a pretty incredible artist.  Looking at his online personality, he seems to be the goofiest and probably one of the few actors who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

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.
