For the last year or so I've seen this amazing boy around my area. I wanted to scout him but he always seemed to be hanging out with his friends and I didn't want to embarrass him by asking him about modelling in front of them.
One morning near the end of last year I was heading to work uncharacteristically early when he came out of a door a few houses down from me. I followed down the road for a bit and decided he was so great I had to speak to him, even though, if I'm honest, he looked a bit hard and thought he might not take kindly to being stopped by me. Turns out he was lovely and was really flattered that I'd asked him.
We stayed in touch but it took me a while to persuade him to come and see me. Finally last week he dropped by and Saty and Pratha were on hand to do some quick pics. Took him in to Elite a few days later, he booked a job the next day and shot for Supplementaire Mag the day after that, all before he'd officially been signed or even had a polaroid taken.
He's so cool. His name's Ben. He rocks!!!
It's been a while since I signed anyone new. Seems I haven't lost my 'Eye' after all and there are plenty more coming over the next few weeks!!!
