How Did I Forget These Images of American Apparel Silver Swimsuit

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.

New Client and New Model from Mega Models Miami

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

MDP_2233RTCHFMichele 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
international standards.

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.

Natalia for Michele Pommier Models

This is a new girl from Los Angeles/Hollywood that came in for Swim Week here in Miami Beach.
I got a chance to shoot her over the weekend and we went on to make some iconic images for
not only the agency but also will be published in Esquire Russia.
