I cannot say enough about Vladimir Ivanov! You can watch him on the runway and behind the scenes at the Roberto Cavalli and D&G fashion show, schmoozing with his friend Danny Schwarz from MTV's hit show "The City."

Seattle Talent Model Vladimir Ivanov!











Since his discovery in the summer of 2008 Vladimir Ivanov has been one of the most successful male models in the fashion industry. Just as predicted, his modeling career has shown no instances of slowing down in 2009. Swiss company Victorinox, Italian designer Frankie Morello, the widely popular French Fashion magazine Numero Homme, V MAN fashion magazine, GQ magazine, and Details magazine have all placed Vladimir Ivanov at the head of their Fall and Winter campaign or editorial. It looks like Vladimir Ivanov is pulling out all the stops and it will be great to watch his career progress throughout 2010!

Congratulations to Seattle Talent model Mikaela Willie!






Fashion Week of 2009 kicked off earlier this October. Our very own Seattle Talent model, Mikaela Willie, walked the runway for the Vogue sponsored event. Mikaela was recently signed by the Seattle Models Guild and along with the Bellevue Fashion Show, has been very busy this summer. Here are just a few of the great photos Mikaela has been taking!

He is on his way back to Europe, signing with a Modeling Agency in Munich Germany, and after that he is heading back to Milan Italy. He is also signed with a Modeling Agency in Slovenia named Curv.

Seattle Talent Success Story!






Look at this awesome little Seattle Talent actor, Jared Scott Gilmore. He is having a huge start to his career, not only has he acted in commercials for Leap Frog, McDonalds, Nilla Cakesters, Hometown Buffet, and AFLAC, but he also has guest starred in "Eleventh Hour" and "Without a Trace". Most exciting, however, is his being a series regular on the Emmy Award winning AMC Drama "Mad Men" (in my humble opinion, the best show on Television). He is doing a great job playing Robert Draper, son of the main character Don Draper. Even more hilarious, Jared does a spot-on spoof of Fox News blowhard Bill O'Reilly, that is worth looking up on YouTube. Jared is represented by Milton Perea of AEF LA, the same agency that represents our own Alexys Sanchez and Serena Demello. This kid is one talented little actor, way to go Jared!

Seattle Talent Success Story!










We have a lot of spectacular talent at Seattle Talent, but this kid really stands out. I have posted about her before, but she has some fun news to report: She just shot a National Commercial for "Jack in the Box", and is a guest star in the new hit Jerry Bruckheimer series "The Forgotten". She has also appeared in "Zoey 101", as well as one of my favorite shows, "The Colbert Report". She is also in a new Comedy Short Film "OMG! Wrong Party!". Jillian is represented by a great Talent Agency, the Maverick Artists Agency, and managed by the prestigious Luber Rocklin Entertainment. Way to go Jillian!

Seattle Talent Success Story!





Look at how cute this little kid is! Seattle Talent actress and model Jade Marks is down in LA right now, and doing a fantastic job. She is signed with a great talent agency and great manager, Diverse Talent Group and Discover Management, and has been booking quite a bit. She has modeled for Zappos (a fantastic online shoe store), she had a principle role on Playhouse Disney, as well this month making a guest appearence on the CBS Soap Opera "The Young and The Restless". We miss having Jade around the studio, as she is just about the sweetest little girl in the world, so comfortable with herself, and an uncommon intelligence that belies her very young age. I can't wait to see what other successes we have to report from this super little actress.

Seattle Talent Success Story!





We are so fortunate at Seattle Talent to work with such amazing kids. I am pleased to announce that both Thess and Azeriah Boudin have signed with the Coast to Coast Talent agency, one of the finest Talent Agencies in LA, as well as with Protege Management. They are a fantastic pair of kids from a fantastic family. They have both worked so hard, traveling from Idaho to our studio in Seattle once or twice a month for the last few months, and their dedication has really payed off. They both participated in the convention in Las Vegas, and it was thrilling to watch their success. Thess was 2nd runner up in "Star of the Year", finished in the top ten in both "Model of the Year" and "Actor of the Year", first runner-up in "Commercial Print" and top ten in "Fashion Print", and Azeriah finished third in the "Actor's Headshot" competition, and finished top ten in both "Commercial Read" events, as well as finished in the top ten in "Scene competition". As if the awards were not exciting enough, Thess finished the week with one of the highest call back totals of the 900 actors/models, she had twenty-seven (27!!!!) agencies interested, and Azeriah was just as impressive with eleven call-backs. The kids already have had several auditions for national commercials, and I expect to be hearing a lot from these two. They are exactly the kind of bright, appealing, and classy kids that make Seattle Talent such an exciting place, and we are very proud of them as clients and proud to call them friends.

Look at how adorable these two are:

Seattle Talent Success Brannon Tompkins

Here is one of my favorite guys, Brannon Tompkins. He is a great Seattle Talent success story, an actor and model who is signed with the KSR Talent Agency. He has been doing quite a bit lately, here are two clips of him. In the first, for Target, he is at the end of the commercial sitting on the pier, flirting with a girl (huge character stretch, Brannon is a charmer). In the second, he is right at the beginning, in the red tank top. As production gears up in LA, you will be hearing even more from this exciting young Seattle Talent actor and model.

Seattle Talent Modeling success Rory H!




Even more fun things are happening with this exciting Seattle Talent model Rory Hjelmaa. He has been in Milan from January through March, and will be heading back. Rory is signed with a couple of great agencies. He is with the best Seattle modeling agency, Seattle Models Guild, and with an excellent European modeling agency, Urban Management. He said he loves Italy, and here are some tear sheets from a Vogue editorial. Rory is having a spectacular start to his career, and it could not be happening to a nicer guy. 

Seattle Talent Update: Alexys Sanchez



I posted something on this great little Seattle Talent actress a few weeks ago, but something cool has just happened. Seattle Talent client Alexys Sanchez has just booked a huge new role! She is going to be in a feature film, playing the role of the daughter of Adam Sandler and Selma Hayek! How huge is that! What a great break for a great kid. Way to go Alexys!

Seattle Talent Success: Chase Vanek




Look at how cool this Seattle Talent kid is! This is Chase Vanek, a great young actor from our Seattle studio. Chase, along with his sister Tori (who is a really great kid too), has been with us for about three years now, and has quite a few fun things happen. The huge job he just got was a strong supporting role he has in the new film directed by Rob Zombie, Halloween 2. Chase plays the young Michael Myers, and had fun playing such a creepy role. Chase got the role because the boy who played the role in the first Halloween, an actor named Daeg, had grown to old. Daeg is a Seattle Talent client as well, from our San Diego office, he was also in the film Hancock. Chase and his mom spent five weeks down south filming, and had a blast. In addition to already being in two national commercials (for Honda and for Microsoft), he also in a fun new kid-friendly independent film "Dear Lemon Lima", the trailer looks hilarious.  It is being introduced at the Los Angeles Film Festival.  Chase is signed with a great Seattle Talent Agency, Sterling Talent, and is also with Laura Lichen Management in LA. Chase, and his sister, are excellent examples of the kids we love to work with at Seattle Talent, and we are so proud of his successes.  

Seattle Talent's supermodel Vladimir Ivanov






This amazing young man is one of the hottest name's in fashion right now, and probably will be for the next few years. Vladimir Ivanov, discovered by our own fashion guru Hank Ritter of Seattle Talent, has lit up the modeling world since his discovery last summer. He has booked major campaigns for Calvin Klein Jeans S/S 09, Trussardi S/S 09, and Calvin Klein Watches S/S 09, and Abercrombie and Fitch; editorials for L'Officiel Hommes (FR), Vogue Hommes Japan, Electric Youth Magazine (UK), Details Magazine (March and April), Contributing Editor, and Numero Homme; as well as being booked literally non-stop in every men's show in Milan and Paris. What a huge life change for the guy since his discovery in Summer 08. His brother is a wildly successful model as well, and I will post an update shortly. We have signed Vlad with two great fashion agencies, the JE Modeling agency in SF, and the finest modeling agency in the world, Wilhelmina LA.
