Here is a new fashion editorial I have half completed with the beautiful Brazilian bombshell Carolinne Rossi from Next Model Management in Miami Beach. As usual, Ron Gerard supplied me with a great casting for a different client where I found Carolinne. We hit it off immediately and had this project a week later. I think she pulled it off beautifully. I think I am going to call the editorial spread “SHOOTER”. The fabulous and spot-on hair and makeup was done by the amazing Sherilyn Segal. She always makes me look good. Also a very special thank you to artist Michael Perez for letting us use Gallery 212 in Miami as a deco backdrop for our story. He had a blast playing with all of my guns. His hospitality is beyond reproach! Should wrap up the shoot this coming Monday.
How Did I Forget These Images of American Apparel Silver Swimsuit! These are the icing on the cake of a beautiful shoot culmination with a very beautiful “golden hour” in Virginia Key off of Key Biscayne in Florida during late January. You be the judge if we nailed it! The fabulous makeup was done by the incomparable Sherilyn Segal and the golden tresses were tended by Vanessa Varela. Sexy, simple and beautiful!
A special thanks to the American Apparel on Lincoln road for their help in this photo shoot.
I recently completed a shoot for a new client of mine. It is a crocheted bikini and swimwear company that does very beautiful hand made swimsuits and coverups. The makeup was by my close friend Sherilyn Segal and the hair was by a newcomer on my team ,Vanessa Varela. The model was Caroline from Mega Models Miami. Thank you for all your help Travis and Javier. Our shoot was on Miami Beach in South Beach and beach work was done on Virginia Key off of Key Biscayne. We are looking for a great 2014 with this new company and creating amazing new images for them
Happy New Year to everyone. My December was crazy with multiple shoots for ABC television as well as many agency shoots. I feel blessed to have so many that trust me to take their visions to the next level.
Miami Beach, South Beach agencies are getting back after it bringing the world back to south Florida. We, collectively, brought the world to and created South Beach out of a retirement idealism and back to a vibrant energetic and yes hedonistic place, well beyond its past glory in the ’50s and ’60’s! The model agencies are attracting new and fabulous talent, both boys and girls, and the kid divisions are also poised to flourish. We are all looking forward to the economy picking up and the stagnation in advertising ending. Looking forward to a fun and fabulous resurgence on the beach.
All my best
By popular demand I am uploading my old model comp. This goes to prove that I did actually model although it wasn’t my favorite part in the fashion business.
This was my composite in Chicago and I did lots of work for Imagnin, Montgomery Wards, Sears, and Marshall Field’s to name a few.
Funny to me how lack of photography sharpness was the norm back then. Don’t get me wrong, I know them images are ancient and have faded especially since printed on cheap paper but thought it would be funny for those of you who know me but didn’t know this about my past.LOL!!!
Another example of a beautiful fashion and makeup story with the amazing Brenda Green doing hair and makeup. An amazing model from Next Models shot in my studio in Los Angeles California. I am so sorry I forgot the name of my amazing stylist(the best I ever had used). She would bring volumes of clothes, accessories, and shoes and all were amazing. Wish I could have shot them all. We did lots of great shoots together, all three of us and would make magic every time.
Leticia and I can always find a way to have a good time shooting beautiful and relevant images for our client. I am fire and she is gasoline and together we have always created a nice,warm glow; tee hee!!!
I recently got to photograph a new beauty from Michele Pommier Models. She is definately on the way back to being the top agent on the beach as long as she keeps discovering and developing talent like Kelsey. Kelsey is a breath of fresh air. Fun, full of energy, and willing to try new things; just what is needed to grow as a model.
Photographed a great new male model for Michele Pommier Models. As one can see he is a great model and has an amazing look.
Good things should be coming for Colton who is 6’2. Below you will see some evidence. Thanks to Javier Hernandez at Michele Pommier for his grooming and styling assistance.
Michele Pommier is at it again. Always the workaholic, Pommier is once again discovering and turning out models that will soon be at the top of the game. Working with her more than 25 years one can attest to Michele’s resolve in shaking things up in the modeling field.
Teaming up with many of the industries top names like Matt Dunn and his photography, she is pushing ahead of many who came after she built the empire and modeling business in south Florida more than 2 decades ago.
Pommier has always had the knack of finding unique, fabulous, and iconic faces. When she pairs that with the unique lens-work of noted fashion and celebrity photographer, Matt Dunn, something special happens. “The team is working like a well oiled machine”, Dunn remarked.” Having met Michele more than 25 years ago, she gave me my shot in the business by allowing me to photograph many of her top models, many of which went on to super-stardom”. Dunn added, “What a gift that was when Michele gave me birth in such a exclusive business”.
Located at 309 23rd street, suite 320, Miami Beach, Florida 33139, the magic continues. Along with Matt Dunn, Pommier is also partnering with Katia Sherman, president of Major Models. Sherman was her second in charge back in the greatest modeling boom in the late ‘80s and ‘90s. Together, they built Michele Pommier Models from a small agency in Coral Gables into a worldwide powerhouse agency whose billings were among the largest in the industry.

POST TAKEN FROM MICHELE POMMIER MODELS SITE:
“We are a boutique agency, representing a small group of working models & talent, which gives
us the ability to work closely with them and concentrate on their individual careers.”
In the 1970’s, Miami Beach became known as God’s Waiting Room. It’s younger sons and
daughters looked around, cringed, and booked the next flight out. They couldn’t be blamed,
really. The area had decayed badly and there was no reason to stay.
Into this morass stepped Michele Pommier, a supermodel turned entrepreneur. Pommier took one
look at all that the fleeing youngsters waved away “the sunshine, the palm trees, that ocean!”
And saw opportunity. She envisioned a future where others saw a void.
Give Pommier credit for being the first to open a modeling agency in Miami, in 1979. She
recognized South Beach as a viable photo location, extolled its virtues, and challenged others to
join her. She raised the bar of the fashion and beauty industry of this area, bringing it up to
This Westport, Connecticut native was one of the most recognized models in the ’70s. She
started out with the esteemed Ford agency in New York City. Later, having accomplished as a
model what she wanted to accomplish, she set out to be an agency owner. Pommier moved to
Coral Gables and opened an agency and prepared for the deluge she knew would follow. It did,
she stayed, and thousands have made their careers off of her 1979 vision.
