After a eight year hiatus, Abercrobie & Finch have relaunched the provocative quarterly magazine and it promises plenty of playful displays of flesh and gracing the cover is Major Model Mgmt's Justin Hopwood.

Justin Hopwood, born in from Cape Town, South Africa, is a South African model, currently living in Hamburg, Germany. An agent spotted Hopwood in 2008 and gave him his card and he then entered into the world of modeling. At the time, he never believed he has the "model look". It wasn't long after signing with Major Model Management that he landed work as a professional model gracing the cover of the recent issue of the Abercrombie & Finch Quarterly and booking the upcoming Polo Jeans campaign.

This South African import is definitely one to watch.

Jhanelle Castillo is represented by Click Models in NYC. This baby faced Spanish/ Black rising young star is making his mark working with Bruce Weber for Abercrombie. His intelligence, perfect skin and full lipped energetic appeal will take him far. He is definitely one of the most beautiful men on Click's roster and one to watch.

Aarron Byran for Surface Magazine Avant Guardian Competition (Photography: Tarrice Love)
Last year I found Gene Grady and shot him in an artistic series for my Surface Magazine Avant Guardian contest. This year I decided to enter the contest again doing a fashion/ artistic series entitiled "...IF I WAS YOUR BOY/GIRLFRIEND?" It is an intermixing of the complexities of masculine and feminine characteristics. After meeting with new model Aarron Bryan , who is fresh from California, I knew he would be perfect for this project. I texted him that Friday morning and we shot that Friday night. Everything turned out better than I expected. The only difficulty was cramming his big ass feet into those stripper heels. lol

below are outtakes from my submission. You can view the actual submission HERE

introducing RICHARD LIMA @ Major Model Mgmt.

I had an amazing opportunity to work with a model who  has worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry...Richard Lima. Richard is currently represented by Major Model Mgmt. Having a career that has spanned well past a decade Richard Lima continues to be one of the industry's most coveted faces. He's definitely proving that somethings get better with age..... he just keeps getting hotter and hotter.

School teacher turned model turned actor Jared Prudoff @ MC2 is headed to Germany to show those Europeans how we do it in America. I have hung out with Jared a few times and decided to get him in front of my lens and create some images he could use in his portfolio for his trip to Germany.
