It is always great to be apart of a model's success (especially a African American model). Andre Douglas started as a college basketball player in Laurenceville, Georgia who maxed out his credit cards to come to New York and shoot with me. He crashed on my couch in the Bronx with a broken foot and immediately signed with a top agency. His classic All-American looks landed major campaigns with Abercrombie and Finch, Levis, D-Squared and Tommy Hilfiger. He has stomped the runways with major American and European designers all over the world.
Andre hit me up to be apart of a project i'm working and create images that would help transition him into a "grown man" image. this wet concept is an easy go to when the temperatures are reaching the 100 degree marks. Pouring water on someone's head while maintaining a straight face isn't as easy as you'd think it would be but Andre handled the situation like a master pro. It was an awesome experience working with Andre and we have more hot images to show y'all soon.
