Barbizon of Akron Graduate Kaitie Price Wows Our Clients Over At Dots!

Barbizon of Akron graduate and now listed model with Pro-Model & Talent Management, Kaitie Price, completely wowed the clients over at DOTS recently after booking with them for the first time!

Personaility is everything in this industry and Kaitie sure has a lot of it! So much so that the client reported back that Kaitie had great energy at the shoot and took some really amazing pictures for their spring line. Kaitie made such an impression that the clients wanted to book her again right away for even more shots for their spring line.

Receiving a callback for additional shots right away is a clear sign that the talent knew what they were doing and needed little to no direction in giving the client exactly what they were looking for. Kaitie undoubtably learned how to work infront of the camera through her stellar training she received at Barbizon of Akron.

The client also reported back that they will be reaching out to Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. again in the near future not only to book Kaitie again, but also for some additional faces!

Barbizon of Akron Graduates Step in Front of the Camera for General Electric

Barbizon of Akron graduates, and now listed models with Pro-Model & Talent Management, Derrek Shephard, Jodie Coffey and Dan Turner did a shoot for General Electric.

The images gathered at the shoot are to be used in General Electric's advertising brochures and on their website. Jodie reported back that the shoot was a lot of fun. They had several wardrobe changes which made for a fun, yet challenging, day in front of the camera.

The knowledge these models gained at Babrizon of Akron allows them to give the photographer exactly what they are looking for with little to no direction.

This industry is so much fun, when you know what your doing in front of the camera, and that's why the training is so essential.

Most importantly, let's not forget the paychecks these three earned from doing such an exciting shoot, but that's just a day in the life for these models!

Barbizon of Akron Graduate Lands the Cover of Modern Salon

Barbizon of Akron graduate, Andrea Debevc, has been working like crazy in New York City. You can see her in various print ads for well-known designers and all over the runways for Fashion Week. This month she is gracing the cover of Modern Salon magazine!

Andrea was chosen from a group of an astonishing 80 models for the shoot, and in addition, scored the cover! The stylist, Michelle Charles Duncan, said of her selection that “so many gorgeous models showed up for the casting, but Andrea caught my eye. I loved her bone structure.”

The cover pictured above, features Andrea with a short and funky blonde look inspired by London’s street-punk style. Clients of all kinds love working with our models because they are cooperative and easy to work with for example, the stylist said of working with Andrea “[she] let me tweak her cut in to something a bit more angular and edgy.”

All of us at Pro-Model & Talent couldn’t be happier for Andrea as she is once again shining in the spotlight in New York City!

Barbizon of Akron Graduates Prepare For Upcoming Bridal Shows

January always brings with it a new year, but more importantly: Bridal Show Season! This time of year brings about the local runway shows for bridal shops in the area to showcase their gowns and suits for the upcoming wedding season.

Runway is an extremely exciting part of the industry that all of our models want to participate in so that they can show off their impeccable runway skills. Bridal runway is an exquisitely unique part of the local fashion industry, as it is open to all sizes and ages of talent.

Whether they are showcasing garments for the Bride, Mother-of-the-Bride, Maid of Honor, Flower Girl, or the Groom; our models always have the proper poise, posture and accuracy on the runway that our clients have come to expect from the models listed with Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt.

Their skills and technical knowledge on the runway are due, in large part, to the training they received at Barbizon of Akron before listing with Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt.
This year our models will walk the runway in gowns for Matina’s Bridal in Beachwood, Ohio and tuxes from Rondinelli’s Tuxedo in Boardman, Ohio. Some of the faces you will see at the show are called back time and time again due their remarkable stage presence like Annalisa Buehler, Rachel Tirpak and Gary Pezzuolo. If you are continually requested back by a client, you know your doing something right.

We can’t wait to see how the shows turn out this year and are confident our models will shine on the runways!
