Natalie Keyser for Amazing Magazine

While searching for pictures of another model (I'll share those with you later), I found this editorial of our model Natalie Keyser, and it was the best surprise! This editorial called "Traffic Control" is from Amazing Magazine, and it lives up to the magazine title. Natalie is no longer modeling, but we are thrilled that she has decided to stay in the Pulse Management family as a scout. So future models, consider yourself warned, Natalie is on the lookout for you. If she is as good of a scout as she is as a model, we are going to have some new supermodels on our hands in no time!

Thanksgiving Hawaiian Style

Stacey Eastman and Jodie Gordon

Not only was this the Eastman family's first Thanksgiving since their move to Hawaii, they were lucky to have some amazing visitors join them. Jodie Gordon and Travis Kipp from Fusion Model Management. Having business partners that feel like family is definitely something to be thankful for, and this trip is going to have to be a Thanksgiving tradition!

Hannah and Liz in London

When this photo popped up on our instagram feed earlier this week, it was like Christmas came early. To see two beautiful models, both discovered and launched by us, together at a shoot and looking so happy, is beyond rewarding. Liz Kennedy and Hannah Holman, both booked a shoot for Warehouse while they have been working in London with The Hive Model Management. Hannah has experienced major success within the industry, and Liz is one of our newer models who already has some major editorials and a French Magazine cover under her belt. Its pretty amazing to see two girls we scouted, one in Minnesota and one in Utah, working together in London. We love it!

Sophia Skloss for Marie Claire Italia

In our opinion a good model doesn't need a lot of hair/makeup tricks to look amazing. Case in point is our model, Sophia Skloss, in this photo from the December 2015 Marie Claire Italia. She looks fresh faced and beautiful. Max Cardelli photographed the editorial and it was styled by Laura Segaunti. The combination of the subtle hair and makeup, along with the beautiful Cèline frock, makes for a stunning photo of Sophia. Not to mention the fact that it is running in one of the most recognized names in the fashion magazine arena, Marie Claire. Keep up the good work Sophia, we are so proud of you!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Liz Kennedy for Vogue Japan

Happy Monday everyone! We have already posted the photos of Liz Kennedy's editorial in Vogue Japan, but now we have the entire magazine page layout to share with you. Anytime one of our models is in Vogue it is cause to celebrate, and seeing the magazine pages makes this editorial for Liz seem even more exciting.

Olivia Hamilton for 1 Granary

During her time in London, our model Olivia Hamilton, was photographed for 1 Granary Magazine's October Issue. 1 Granary is the magazine made by students of Central Saint Martins, which is one of the most esteemed design universities in the world, whose fashion program alumni are some of the top designers in the fashion industry. The photos accompanied this article about Charlotte Hockin, and her philosophies behind her designs. These photos are different than any others that I have seen of Olivia, and I always like seeing a little diversity.

More Pics from Georgia Weeks in Nylon

You all may remember this post we did about Georgia Weeks picking up the issue of Nylon Magazine that this editorial ran in. Now we have all of the photos of Georgia from the magazine to share with you, and we have a feeling you will like them as much as we do! Georgia, this editorial turned out even better than our expectations, and they were pretty high. We are looking forward to seeing what you do next.

Why Finding the Right Photographer Matters

The above video is an experiment done by Canon, to see how differently one subject can be photographed by six different photographers. Each photographer was given a unique backstory about the subject, and its amazing how much each photograph turned out. 

We are always amazed how each model of ours can look so differently, depending on the shoot she's in and the photographer. We also stress to our new potential models the importance of testing with currently published and proven photographers. A model's portfolio can make or break her, and sometimes no matter how incredible the model, if her book is subpar it can make it nearly impossible to find her work.

At Pulse Management we take pride in the development of the models we represent. Through our Dolls Model Management shoots, we only use photographers that we know will deliver us the kinds of photographs needed to launch a model's career. We are lucky to know and work with some of the most talented photographers in the business.

Liz Kennedy for Sunday Times Style

We are loving the pictures from Liz Kennedy's editorial in Sunday Times Style.  Julia Kennedy photographed these pictures, it was styled by Flossie Saunders, Peter Lux styled the models' hair, and the makeup was done by Elias Hove. This crew created something beautiful with this shoot, and we can't get over Liz as a curly-haired blond.  Or I guess the new term is bronde. Its a look we haven't yet seen on Liz, and we have to say, she totally pulls it off. We have yet to see photos of Liz's time in London this summer that we haven't loved, and we have a feeling that's not going to change.

Major Moment Monday: Sophie Skloss for Burberry

The other day I was doing a little online browsing and who did I see on the front of the Women's clothing section of the Burberry website? Our very own Sophia Skloss!  You may remember when Sophia walked in Burberry's runway show, we posted about it here. I'm not surprised that Sophia's photo is up so prominently on their site, look at how beautiful she looks draped in that poncho (which by the way is to die for!).  This may be old news to Sophia, but we think when you are on the website of a designer as iconic as Burberry, it is pretty MAJOR!

Georgia Weeks for PETRIe Magazine

Our model Georgia Weeks is on a roll! Earlier this week we posted about her editorial in Nylon Magazine, and today we have these stunning pictures from her editorial in PETRIe Magazine.  Helen Eriksson photographed the editorial, and she did a really incredible job.  You may remember that Eriksson recently photographed another one of our models, Madison Moehling.

Congrats on another beautiful editorial Georgia! You have some really amazing editorials under your belt, and we are so proud of you.

Liz Kennedy in London

At this point I'm thinking it would be difficult to take a bad photo of our model Liz Kennedy. When we scouted Liz in Minnesota, we knew she had a face like we had never seen, and we HAD to represent her.  We will forever be grateful that she and her family trusted us to launch and manage her career, and now we're thinking there are plenty of photographers, agents, bookers, editors, etc. that are so glad we started her career.  

Over the summer Liz (and her best friend, Olivia Hamilton) spent some time in London, and we have to say the pictures we are seeing from her time over there are some of her best pictures yet!  Lately Liz has a confidence we can see in her photos that we can't get enough of.  While in London Liz is placed with The Hive Management in London, and we think they were a great fit for her.

Congrats to Fusion on Leomie Anderson in the VS SHOW!

Fusion Model, Leomie Anderson

It is no secret how much we love our partners at Fusion Model Management in New York City.  We want to publicly declare our excitement for them about their model Leomie Anderson walking in THE Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that taped yesterday.  Each year walking in the VS Show is a bigger deal as it gets more and more popular, and we are so happy that one of our partners' models was in the show.  You better believe we will be watching when it airs on CBS on December 8th and cheering extra loud when Leomie walks down the runway!  

Jodie and her team at Fusion are some of the best in the business, which is why we trust them with our models.  Congrats to you all, we are over the moon for you!

Supermodels and Social Media

Liz Kennedy and Olivia Hamilton in Japan

"The impact of the Internet on the modeling industry cannot be overstated." -- VOGUE

Last week Vogue ran an incredibly insightful article about models, the impact of social media on their careers, and how live-streaming will affect their online following.  It is no secret that a model's number of followers on sites like Instagram and Twitter, can be the deciding factor if he/she books a job.  In fact now when we meet our models for their Dolls Model Management test shoots, we discuss social media with them. It is too important not to have a candid discussion with them about it,  especially when it comes to social media safety!

If you're interested in the article, (and if you're one of our models you NEED to read it), click here to read it in its entirety.

Olivia Hamilton for Wonderland Magazine

Over the summer our model, Olivia Hamilton, spent sometime working in London.  While she was there she was photographed by Thurstan Redding for Wonderland Magazine.  The photos were included in Wonderland's 10th Anniversary Issue.  Another one of our models was also included in the same issue, and we'll share whom it is tomorrow.  In the meantime enjoy these pretty perfect pictures of Olivia!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Georgia Weeks for Nylon Magazine

Today is a happy (major moment) Monday indeed, because we are celebrating our model Georgia Weeks' editorial in the latest issue of Nylon Magazine. If I'm being honest here, I would have to say that Nylon Magazine is one of my favorites, and so to see our model in their pages is pretty awesome. 

While I'm working on getting you all the photos from the editorial, I thought you might get a kick out of this picture from Georgia's instagram. Her mom snapped this picture while picking up the issue of Nylon at their local Target. Seeing yourself in a magazine never loses its excitement, and Georgia we are so excited for you!

Maddie and Holly are on the Move!

Pulse Models, Maddie West (left) and Holly Sherman (right), are two of our new faces that have some exciting opportunities unfolding.  Maddie heads to New York City this weekend, and Holly arrived in NYC earlier this week.  While they are in New York  we have them working with the team at our partner Fusion Model Management.  Their time in New York will be filled with test shoots, castings, and hopefully they will gain enough momentum to book some jobs while they are there.  Good luck to both of you and we are excited to see what comes out of your time in the Big Apple!

Maddie and Stacey

Madison Moehling for Drop Magazine

Do you all remember our model Madison Moehling?  She is one of our newer faces, originally from Minnesota but has been in New York for the past few months working with our partner Fusion Model Management.  These photos are from her latest editorial that ran in Drop Magazine.  Helen Eriksson photographed the shoot, and it was styled by Alison Mazur.  Madison, this editorial looks amazing and we love that we got a rare smiling shot.  It's nice to see your infectious personality shining through!
