Barbizon Instructor, Paul Mowery, and graduate, Claude Jordan, got to join in the fun recently at a local shoot for Simonton Windows. Paul and Claude did a very lucrative print ad that will be used for Simonton's in-store brochures.
It is always nice when the client is so pleased with the models/talents work, that they take the time to call the Agency to say “great job”. In fact, the client was so happy with Claude and Paul that they are looking for other projects in which to utilize these two very talented men. That is the highest compliment that a model/talent can receive: a client wanting to use them for another job based on their previous booking!
Job well done!

From The ABC Network To NBC... Barbizon Of Akron Graduate, Shaila Vaidya Is Appearing On Hit Shows: "Desperate Housewives" & "Parenthood"!
Shaila Vaidya who is originally from Wooster, Ohio started her career many years ago here in Akron, Ohio with Barbizon of Akron and Pro-Model & Talent. Shaila currently considers the West Coast home and has been one super busy young lady out in Hollywood!
This past week Shaila wrapped up filming an episode of “Desperate Housewives”; you will be able to see her on the “Let Me Entertain You” episode! Here is what Shaila had to say about working on the famous show: “Working on the set of ‘Desperate Housewives’ was a really cool experience. It was so exciting to get on a show that’s pretty hard to get on and does not have a lot of smaller roles, and I loved working with all of the actors!” Shaila also loved the fact that she had her own trailer for the day! (Check out some of the candid shots from the set.)
Now if that is not exciting enough, Shaila has also shot a national commercial for McDonalds that is airing in different parts of the country.
Last but not least, Shaila booked an episode of the popular NBC show “Parenthood”, with Monica Potter, Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard, and Peter Krause. Shaila said the whole cast and crew were fantastic to work with.
While Shaila stays super busy with the acting she also manages to find time for charitable causes. This fall Shaila and her husband helped organize and participated in the event “Rock for Autism” in Idaho. They had a huge turn out for this very worthwhile cause.
It is always great to see Pro-Model & Talent people giving back to the community! For those of you that want to keep up with all the fun things Shaila is doing you can check out her official Facebook fan page!!

Rock-Paper-Scissors...Barbizon of Akron/Pro-Model & Talent Alumnus Was The Loser Of The Game, But Scores Big With A National Commercial!
In addition to seeing Brian in commercials for Target, UPS, Ikea, Chevy, Hummer and other, you can now see him in the comical Cisco commercial playing "rock-paper-scissors" with a fellow employee prior to a business meeting. Brain is easy to spot in the commercial (shown below) as he was cast as the unfortunate loser of the game - the punishment... not to ruin it, but Brian ends up with a Mohawn at the end of the commercial! And yes, they did shave his head for the commercial!
Brian's personality really comes out in this commercial, and he is thrilled that the commercial is airing Nationwide for all of his friends and family to see.
Another great job and another national commercial to add to his already impressive roster.

This last trip to LA, Matt shot a commercial for Disney XD that can be seen on YouTube and on the Disney XD channel. Then he was off to the fabulous beaches of California to shoot some hoops for a WSS Shoe Warehouse commercial that you can see by logging onto shopwss.com and clicking the YouTube link.
While Matt tends to stay very busy while in LA, he still finds time to play between projects. Before heading back to Ohio, Matt was able to squeeze in some surfing lessons! This definitely was not a trip of all work and no play, but he sure did stay busy!
