We Love Olivia Hamilton!

Photos from a test shoot with High Fashion Photographer William Lords in NYC

 We received the nicest email from Olivia Hamilton, one of our models, and we just had to share it with you all! We've said it before, but sometimes it helps potential models and their parents see what our current models have to say about working with us, in their own words.  We are so proud of Olivia, and we can't wait to share with you all the MAJOR job she just booked.  We can't spill the details yet, but just wait, it is BIG!

Dear Stacey,
    I cannot say anything besides positive things about what you have done for my life. When I was discovered in Denver, my hometown, I never expected my life to bloom into what it is today. Because of you, I've been to Los Angeles and New York and also completed over 65 jobs in 15 weeks in Tokyo. All this happened before the age of 16 and I can only imagine what's coming next. I don't know how you do it but you make things happen. Currently I am preparing for New York Fashion Week!!! That's something that I never thought I'd be able to say.
    Not only am I traveling the world and experiencing amazing things in the fashion industry, but I'm also being supported by the best family one could ask for...Pulse!!! You guys are my new BFFs, travel buddies, and family members. No matter where I am or what I'm doing you make me feel at home. When I travel the world with friends from Pulse and build new relationships it makes the experience even better. Stacey, I love how you always take the time to make sure that your girls and their families are comfortable and familiar with everything! For example, my dad is now supportive of my modeling and trusts the Pulse team completely...and I never thought that would happen.
    All and all, you have turned my life around for the better! I am now a world traveler and a working model with growing friendships and a supportive family <3 Thanks for everything Stacey Eastman! God bless you and everyone partnered with Pulse!!!
        Much love,
        -Olivia Hamilton

Sophie Skloss in Tokyo

A couple weeks ago we posted this about Sophie Skloss' (model in the stripes) first few days in Tokyo.  We are happy to report that we have received several great updates from Sophie and her mom, who are continuing to enjoy their trip to Japan.  We love that through modeling, we get to send these amazing young men and women (and sometimes their parents) to places they would not have otherwise been going, at least not as frequently.  Being able to open up someone's eyes to a new culture and a new place is almost as rewarding as seeing each model gain confidence as she learns to navigate a new place.  We also love seeing the work each model does in each city!  Keep up the good work Sophie, and we are so glad you and your mom are enjoying Tokyo.  (Also pictured is another model Sophie befriended and that model's mom)

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hannah Holman for Miu Miu

For today's Major Moment Monday, we are going back to F/W 2009 when Pulse Management discovery Hannah Holman booked the Miu Miu ad campaign.  So many things were huge about this job for Hannah.  First of all it is Miu Miu, it was shot by the famed photographing duo Mert and Marcus, and then just look at the images.  I always love Miu Miu ads from a model's standpoint because they say the models names right on the ad, which is kind of cool. We love looking back at this ad, and since we just featured Hannah as our Throwback Thursday model, we thought it was appropriate to show you one of her biggest career moments.

Olivia in NYC

Oh Olivia, New York City agrees with you! We are loving these black and white images from your test shoot with Richard Guaty.  Olivia Hamilton, one of our models from Colorado has been in New York City recently and we knew she would do amazingly out there.  New York City is one of the hardest markets to work in for a model, but Olivia is handling it like a pro.  It definitely helps that she has worked in Asia extensively, so by the time she got to NYC she had a lot of experience in front of the camera.  That was our plan for her (as her management), and we are thrilled to see it working out so well!  We love you Olivia, and keep up the good work!

Hey everyone, it's Thursday again, meaning it is time for another Pulse Management TBT!

Natalie Keyser for SPOON MAGAZINE

Natalie Keyser is perfectly, hauntingly scary in the above video and accompanying editorial for Spoon Magazine. Natalie said that this shoot was one of her favorites in her 10 year modeling career. Pulse Management President, Stacey Eastman, also loves this shoot.  He has an affinity for vampires ever since he took a tour of the Parisian Catacombs with a few of our top models working in Paris.  We can't believe the transformation of Natalie in these pictures.  If we didn't know her better, we would be genuinely scared that she had transformed into a real vampire, because this styling is that believable. We keep saying that Natalie is at the top of her game, and these pictures and video are just further proof of that.

In Their Own Words: Charlee and Mari Lou Pilon

A lot of people who visit this blog are potential models and their parents.  This post is especially for you.  We know that the modeling industry is an intimidating one to enter, and we thought it would be helpful hearing from one of our models and her mom, in their own words about their involvement with Pulse Management. Charlee and Mari Lou, thank you for your kind words, we love and appreciate you both!

Hi Stacey! 

As you know, I'm currently working, and living in New York City all thanks to you & pulse management! Scouted my freshman year of high school at a track meet never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would ever have a chance to model and travel the world! It's been a whirlwind and something I never thought was possible, but I feel so blessed & grateful for all that you, your family, & pulse management have done for me. Being so involved in my school & sports I decided it would be best for me to have a normal high school experience, & opted out on going home schooled to start my modeling career sooner. For me, personally, it was just the best decision, and I really appreciate how you and pulse respected my decision, but also never gave up on me and waited until I was ready to take on the fashion world. You've been nothing but helpful & accommodating to me & my family through this whole process. I know when I need advice, help, or just someone in my corner you're always there & I'm extremely grateful for that. I feel like there's a lot of negativity in the media about modeling or the fashion industry in general, but I can honestly say my experience has been nothing but positive. I've gotten to travel to places I never dreamed I'd have the chance of going to, experience stuff teenage girls dream of, & meet so many new friends & form new relationships. All of pulse's partner agencies have treated me with nothing but respect and truly care about my career, and me personally as well. I'm extremely grateful for you, pulse & everything you & partner agencies have done for me & family. God bless & see you soon! 
-Charlee Pilon

Hi Stacey, 
Just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for Charlee. As you know she is in New York now working and having the experience of her life! The other Pulse girls, some of her roommates, have become her good friends and she is meeting girls from all over the world. We know we could never do this without you as her manager. You have been there from the beginning to make sure that every experience Charlee has is positive. She knows that you have her back always! She can call you anytime with anything!! As a mom it is important to know that Charlee is being taken care of 5,000 miles away from home! We are so grateful for you! We appreciate that you waited for Charlee to graduate from high school and now she is giving her all to modeling! Thank you for being patient and even supportive of all of her high school athletics. She knows that you care about her as a whole person!! I could not be the mom of a model without you! Thank you for everything!! 
Mari Lou Pilon

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hannah Holman for Marc Jacobs

For today's Major Moment Monday, we are going back 4 years to the S/S 2010 Marc by Marc Jacobs ad campaign starring none other than Pulse Management discovery, Hannah Holman.  You fashion lovers out there will remember this collection of Marc's with the oversized hair accessories (Madonna wore one to the Met Ball).  This was an exciting time in Hannah's career because after a few years of waiting, and of us hearing she was too short to ever book a high fashion job, our perseverance paid off and Hannah was suddenly all over the fashion scene.  Marc Jacobs loved Hannah, and decided to use her as the model for the launch of his Daisy perfume in 2011.  In the fashion world, once Marc Jacobs gives his seal of approval, you are pretty much golden.  Soon Hannah was walking runways for Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel), modeling for Miu Miu and she was the first campaign model ever for Alexander Wang.  Not too bad for a girl from Delta, Utah, who people told us would never work!

Ali Stephens: Dancer in the Dark

Pulse Management discovery, Ali Stephens, is perfectly haunting in the above video and accompanying editorial shots.  This photo/video combo was for Modern Weekly, a Chinese Magazine.  A lot of our girls have been working in Asia lately, and not only do the jobs pay well (which makes everyone happy!), but they are creatively stunning.  Good models love a challenge, and to take on a shoot that is out of their comfort zone.  These types of shoots pay off in the end because they get images for their books that are unlike anything else they have, and show their range as a model.  We still can't believe it has been more than six years since we launched Ali's modeling career.  It has been an absolute pleasure to see this girl that we knew had a ton of potential blossom into such a successful model.

Pulse Mgmt Throwback Thursday: Guess Who?

We are starting something new on our Pulse Management social media and we are hoping you guys all like it.  We are doing our own version of Throwback Thursdays (TBT), where we post a childhood pic of one of our models on our instagram, and you can leave your guess of who it is in the comments.  We will have the answer in the form of a current picture of our model posted on the blog. For this week's TBT, we posted a pic of one of our newer models, Madeline Skoglund.  You can also see Madeline and her mom on this video we did from a Dolls Model Management shoot here.

Amanda Chamberlain COVERS City & Shore Magazine

How have we not shared this gorgeous cover of Amanda Chamberlain yet?  This magazine cover is from the April 2014 issue of City & Shore Magazine, and it is just downright pretty! Amanda is originally from Utah, but she has been working in Miami for a while, and judging from this cover, Miami is a great fit for her.  These photos were all taken by Courtney Rodwell, and they capture the essence of Miami perfectly. Congrats on your cover and editorial Amanda, it is definitely something to be proud of.

Corey Scott on the Photogenics Blog

Do you all remember Corey? We introduced him to you in this post.  We recently placed him with our LA Partner, Photogenics. We weren't surprised to see him pop up on the Photogenics blog yesterday, because, well if you signed him wouldn't you be bragging about him too?  We think that Photogenics will be a great fit for Corey, and we can't wait to see what his career has in store.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hazel and Hallie for Tinsel Tokyo

Have you guys heard about Tinsel Tokyo Magazine yet?  It is an amazing magazine that is all about finding the fashion industries' greatest talents and pairing them for some killer collaborations.  In their latest issue, two of our models are featured in the New Faces section, and we are pleased as punch! Hazel Reynolds and Hallie Rose are two of Pulse Management's newest models, and we are so proud to already see them in print.  They were recently shot at their Dolls Model Management shoot with Rodney Ray (one of our all time favorite photographers). The results were amazing, and now these two new models, are gracing the pages of one of our favorite fashion magazines.  In our opinion, that definitely qualifies as Major Moment Monday worthy!

More Pics from Natalie Keyser's Editorial in Elle Mexico

These pics are hot off the presses from Elle Mexico, and we are in awe of our girl Natalie Keyser.  We posted about this editorial already this week, but when we saw these pictures, we deemed them worthy of a double post for the same editorial.  Wouldn't you agree? Natalie returned home to Oregon after working in Mexico City for a few months, but she didn't stay put for long.  She is currently working in NYC.  With pics like this, we wouldn't be surprised if Natalie is on the go for a while, because this girl is going to be in high demand!

Sophie Skloss is learning the Ropes in Tokyo!

Check out our girl Sophie as she begins her Tokyo take-over!  We just sent Sophie to Tokyo recently and she is already getting the hang of riding the metro, going to castings and ultimately booking jobs!  We just received an email from her mom that said:

Greetings from Tokyo!  So Sophie has been to 14 castings in the past 2 days & was so excited when she came back last night b/c she got her 1st job today!  Some e catalog brands4friends, I know nothing about it. But she was happy as a clam as she met another French gal to catch the metro.  Thanks to both of you!

We love our models, and we love their parents!  When we send a model to any new market we only do it if we think it will be a good fit for them, and if it is in the best interest for their careers. We thought that Sophie would do well in Asia, and we are so happy to hear that she is enjoying herself.  Keep up the good work Sophie!
