Sirena Models always has busy weekdays but this weekend was quite busy as well. We had Crystal working an all day catalog shoot in San Diego Saturday, Audrey working a 5 day job in Amsterdam, Holland from Friday to Tuesday for the leading 3D Virtual Software company, and Belvedere Vodka booked 7 of our models for two full days at their pre-party for the MTV Video Music Awards. It was an amazing pool side party held at incredible hotspot The Roosevelt Hotel across from the Kodak Theater. The sun was out and the weather was a perfect 82 degrees. The morning was quite relaxing for the girls, but after 2 pm things really started to heat up as the crowd of VIPs mingled in the pool area and cooled off at the open bar. Loud speakers pumped the music and Hip Hop singer B.o.B. jumped up onto the stage overlooking the pool and belted out some tunes. It was Hollywood at its finest.

Did you know that in addition to our extensive board of beautiful print models, Sirena Models’s Fit Division is one of the top 3 in the nation. Fit Models, shortened from Fitting Model, is often mistaken with the termFitness Models(models that have a extremely developed muscular physique) which they are not. Ever wonder how those perfect jeans wear so well or that shirt hangs so nice on you? Fit Models are used by fashion designers or clothing companies to check the visual appearance and feel of a garment on a real person. This can be used to shape everything from denim jeans, blouses, bikinis to rain coats. The model has been chosen not for their appearance but rather for the measurements and proportions of their body type. Designers have very specific measurements for the hips, bust, waist, shoulder, arm length, inseam, outseam as well as many others reference points. Fit models are usually bigger than print models with sizes 4, 6, and 8. They are trying to match and create a template with those exact measurements. The job of the fit model is to give experienced feedback on the fit, movement, and feel of the garment and relay those one on one with the designers. The designers will pin and mark the changes and modify the clothing with each session’s feedback. This process usually happens several times before an exact perfect fit is achieved. Sizing up and down from that finished garment is called grading.
Last Friday evening we kicked off shooting our much anticipated Sirena Models Fashion Video Series. The model, Sarah, make-up artist Briana, and I met downtown around 5:30 to start make-up and a bit of hair styling for that evening’s planned fashion video shoot around downtown Los Angeles. We finished make-up and hair and started to play around with a few wardrobe pieces while waiting for the video director. He was running a bit late in the heavy L.A. traffic. The model looked absolutely stunning so I popped out my camera and Hensel Porty Beauty Dish with white diffusion sock. I had to rush quickly to capture a few shots in the last few remaining fragments of light. Nothing planned, just a short 10-15 minute shoot resulted in some surprising results. I will post more shots later with another outfit. The first four shots were just before sun down and the last one with black pants is taken during the video shoot later that night using a 1200 Hensel Ring Flash. The fashion video shoot went off so great later that evening and is being edited right now. It was one very stunning sexy fashion shoot. I will probably be posting a short clip straight from camera later this evening. Enjoy!

The huge European auto parts company Febi / Bilstein based in Germany, just got through shooting their 2011 calendar. Luckily Sirena Models was there to shoot the behind the scenes video footage that came out incredible. Tiffany T. of Sirena Models was booked for 2 days to shoot in the California desert near Joshua Tree. View Tiffany’s recently updated portfolio here. She looked absolutely stunning at the shoot and the western ghost town location was unbelievable. Along with Tiffany was Director/DP Gregg Atwell, an experienced and talented video director working with Sirena Models and our client Febi, to capture all of the very sexy footage. Sirena’s own Jason Wild was there as well working on the video production and testing new video equipment. We just got back to L.A. a couple of days ago but here is a sneak peek of one of the scenes. The completed video of the shoot with many more set-ups and scenes will be posted shortly. You will not want to miss it because it is about as hot as it gets.

Also booked was beautiful Tanja P., the brunette, and male model Jason S.
Model Sherina M: from background to lead role in Vitamin Water Campaign! I want to share with you, what can happen when you make yourself available, even on very short notice. Friday we called our long time model, Sherina M., shortly before 7:00am for a last minute background role in a major print campaign. She picks up the phone, is available and able to be on set at 10:00am the same morning! She shows up to the shoot looking amazing and stands out among the extras. The client loves her unique look and asks her on the spot to shoot one of the lead roles instead, thereby bumping her pay by 5 times as much! Needless to say, Sherina was very happy, and so are we, that she picked up her phone early in the morning. Congratulations, Sherina, on the job! Let me take this opportunity to again remind all Sirena models of the importance of being available: taking the calls, answering your emails, in short being a professional model! It does pay off.
UPDATE! May 2010
Sherina’s job for Vitamin Water is now out on billboards and magazines nationwide. Just got back from Vegas and saw this monster sized ad displayed on the biggest TV Billboard on Las Vegas Blvd.
One of the samples the client sent us is shown below.
