We’re gearing up for a big trip to New York City so that Milo can participate in the International Models and Talent Association (IMTA) competition in July. That has meant extra acting classes and the need to update the shots in his portfolio. Last Saturday, the agency brought a great photographer in from Michigan to do a photo shoot. You’ve already seen the chilling picture I posted about doing Milo’s ironing so you can imagine the preparation needed. It was the first time I got to attend a shoot as Milo did his last shoot with his mom. We had a great day. It was fascinating to see how Milo’s agent put clothes together to create a look and then worked with the hair and makeup stylist to create a whole image. There were quite a few models around also getting looks put together and the whole atmosphere was pretty festive. I’m continually impressed with what the agency pulls off but there were some great moments that stood out that day. One of the models was doing a construction worker look with cut off jeans and a sleeveless jean jacket and doesn’t Geoff pull out a pair of 5″ stiletto heeled work boots. Awesome. I wish I took a picture of those boots. I certainly enjoyed the discussion about which pair of boots looked best with another model’s little black dress. It’s pretty cool how a pair of boots changes the whole impact of a look. Grommets, no grommets, shiny or dull, cork heel or platform. It’s more work than it seems.
Milo got to shoot classic head shots in a solid blue top, green pants combo. There was a slick looking look with a purple dress shirt and a green tie. Then he moved into some artistic looks. The 1920’s newsboy tough and the jaded punk looks I got some pictures of.
Without further ado… here are some shots I took with my phone while on location.
