#pulsemgmtholidays: Some of Our Favorites

We absolutely loved seeing everyone's pictures on instagram under the #pulsemgmtholidays.  It was such a treat getting to see our models with their families and sharing their holiday pictures with us.  We think this will have to be an annual thing for us at Pulse, because we love seeing our models in their homes with their nearest and dearest.  This was the closest thing that we could get to spending the holidays with all of you.  While we can't post every picture that was posted, here are a few.  If you want to see all of them, check them out on Instagram.  (Also, are you following us yet on Instagram? If not, what are you waiting for? @pulsemgmt)

Amy Swenson wrote our name in the snow, we love that kind of dedication!

We are starting something new here at our Pulse Management Blog, MAJOR MOMENT MONDAYS (MMM).  Each Monday we are going to take a stroll down memory lane and pay homage to our gorgeous models and some of the huge jobs they have landed.  Did you know that at Pulse we have 19 Vogue covers from our models.  In the fashion world, there is no bigger job than a Vogue cover.  

For today's MMM we are looking back to when Hye Rim Park, a Pulse Mgmt discovery from Salt Lake City Utah, was front and center on the cover of Vogue Korea.  These days there are plenty of successful Asian models, but when we found Hye there were not many (if any) Asian models working consistently.  We changed that with Hye, and she walked the biggest runways, and landed jobs with some of the most sought after clients in the industry. We love this girl, and we have loved being a part of her journey.

Erin's In-Flight Reading Material

One of our favorite models, Erin Cummins, recently headed down to Columbia for a big job (that we will post about when we are allowed to) and she was in one of the magazines she brought with her.  This editorial spread was published in Aventura Magazine, one of the most popular magazines in Florida.  Erin has had a lot of adventures since she has started modeling with us, from meeting Donald Trump and working with his modeling agency, to her recent trip to Columbia.  We are excited to see what 2014 has in store for Erin.  One thing we know for sure it will be an exciting year for this gorgeous model.

Merry Christmas from Pulse Mgmt

Merry Christmas (Eve) to all of you! At Pulse Mgmt, we aren't the best singers, so we thought we spare you a video of us singing, and let U2 sing you a holiday song.  (Although it might be good entertainment for you to see us singing...) We are so thankful for all of our models (past and present), their families, and for all of you readers.  We hope that you all have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.

Stacey Eastman and his family, and the rest of the Pulse Mgmt Team

Liz in LA

We have been obsessing over these photos of Liz taken during her last trip to LA.  She had a shoot with photographer, Lucas Passmore, and the images are the epitome of California cool. We love the simplicity of the wardrobe and composition, so you can really see how incredible she is as a model.  It is still amazing to us that we discovered her a few months ago, and she is already consistently taking such strong pictures (the talented photographers she has been able to work with definitely deserve some credit too!!).

 Liz is now back home in Minnesota for the holidays, and we bet the warmth of LA is sounding pretty good to her right about now!  The last time I spoke with Liz she told me that when she is not in front of the camera she misses it and can't wait for her next shoot.  Lucky for her she won't have to wait long.  Stay tuned for what we have up next for this beauty.

Sneak Peek of Carson's Cover of Pink Revista Magazine

Covershooting for PiNK Revista magazine // Backstage with Edgar Berg from Edgar Berg on Vimeo.

Carson Bruner recently shot the front cover for the January/February Issue of Pink Revista Magazine on the streets of downtown New York City. We'll count this video of the shoot as an early Christmas present because it is amazing.  It is always fun to see the work that goes into getting a perfect cover photo.  Carson looks flawless and it seems she was in great hands with this crew.  We can't wait to see the finished product!

Olivia WORKED Japan

We had to repost this picture from Olivia Hamilton's instagram, because it's too awesome not to!  We arranged for Olivia to go to Tokyo for 10 weeks, and in that time she booked and completed a total of 41 jobs.  In the above photo she is holding all of her daily job detail sheets.  She picked them up every evening after her castings, and they listed the work she had in store for the next day.  Out of her 41 jobs, she had 10 major editorials, and 10 fashion shows.  We had high hopes for Olivia's time in Japan, but she exceeded them!  Kick back and relax a little bit over the holidays Olivia, you deserve it.  We are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us in 2014!

Art Basel with Amanda: Part II

In addition to our post yesterday about Amanda Chamberlain walking in the Cavalli Fashion Show during Miami's Art Basel, she also walked in the BCBGMAXAZRIA Fashion Show.  The above picture is of Amanda, and BCBG Chief Creative Officer Lubov Azria, doing a last minute wardrobe check before she sent Amanda down the runway.  The BCBG Show was held on December 2, which is also Amanda's birthday!  Amanda said, "The show took place on my birthday and it was so beautiful!  The tent was literally on the beach, open to the ocean... During the finale the models released live butterflies."

The fashion show was at Soho House, which is one of the most exclusive places to go in Miami.  Not a bad place to spend a birthday, right Amanda?  We think Amanda looks amazing, and this looked like one of the best events to hit Art Basel this year.  Thanks for giving us an insiders view to these fashion shows, Amanda.  We hope you have a great year ahead of you.

Art Basel with Amanda: Part I

December 7th, marked the end of another amazing Art Basel in Miami.  Click on the link to learn more about Art Basel, but it is one of the biggest events in Miami every year.  Pulse Mgmt's Amanda Chamberlain, originally from Utah, has been in Miami working for the past few months and she sent us some pictures from her Art Basel experience.  These pictures are from the Roberto Cavalli fashion show, held at a private party at the Miami SLS Hotel.  These pictures are interesting because you can see Amanda's look from her fitting in the top photo, and then you can see her when she had her make up done and hair almost ready in the second picture from the night of the show.  

Many of the parties and events at Art Basel are by invite only, and it can be tough to make the guest lists.  Lucky for you readers, we have Amanda to show us her behind the scenes access!  Check back on the blog tomorrow for Part II of Art Basel with Amanda.

Test Results are in for Armon

In the modeling industry a phrase you will often hear is "test shoot".  Test shoots are exactly what they sound like, either agencies, potential clients, photographers, etc. want to test out a model to see how they shoot.  Sometimes someone is amazing looking in person, but when you see their film it is underwhelming.  Other times you can be on the fence about a model, and then when you get their test images back, they can be amazing.  That is why we test shoot, because you never know until you see a model's film.

Armon Eastman, had a number of test shoots in NYC recently for clients interested in him for the upcoming men's runway and print seasons.  These pictures speak for themselves. Needless to say these pictures are making Armon quite the sought after prospect for the upcoming season.  I can't name specific clients that are interested at the moment, but I will as soon as I'm at liberty to do so.  Basically think about some of the biggest menswear designers in fashion, and Armon is on their shortlist.

Don't you worry, dear blog readers, as Armon books the jobs we will keep you posted.  He is going big, and it is all happening very fast.  We love it.

Sara Grace Kelley's Behind the Scenes in Hong Kong

Sara Grace Kelley is keeping up our streak of models conquering the Asian fashion scene.  These pictures are a sneak peek for a photo shoot she did for one of the largest hair salons in China.  We are definitely picking up a Marie Antoinette (Sofia Coppola version, of course!) from the wardrobe styling and makeup.  We can't wait to see the final product!

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on TV Tonight!

Tonight the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is airing on CBS.  This is arguably the biggest fashion show of the year, especially if you are considering viewership numbers.  Working for Victoria's Secret is one of the biggest jobs a model can get.  If you think about it, you probably know a lot of the VS Angels by their first names (Karlie, Lily, Doutzen, Behati, Candice, Adriana, Alessandra, etc).  The VS Angels are our generations answer to the supermodels of the 90s.  

We do not have any of our models in the show airing tonight, but at Pulse Management, we have been lucky enough to have two of our models work for VS Hannah Holman and Tori Praver.  We think we have a couple of girls that are ready to walk to VS catwalk next year, lets see if we can make it happen!  Any of our models reading this, are you going to be our next girl to work with VS? Let's make this happen.

A Few of our Favorite People

Lisa (Head of Pulse Mgmt PR), Shayna (Pulse Mgmt COO), Stacey (Pulse Mgmt President), Liz (Future Supermodel), and Jen (Liz's mom)

We had a busy weekend, which we will share all of the details with you soon!  All the stars aligned on Friday night and we were able to have some of our favorite people at one table.  Liz and her mom escaped the cold in Minnesota and were in LA for some photo shoots.  Stacey, Shayna and Lisa were in LA for the Dolls Model Mgmt test shoots.  We all met up at an Eastman family favorite restaurant, The Stinking Rose in Beverly Hills.  

We had a great dinner, and had a chance to chat with Liz about her whirlwind month.  While at dinner we were reminded of what is going to make Liz so successful.  Her look is immaculate, her go-with-the-flow attitude, willingness to make modeling her top priority, and her awesome family support are all combining to make Liz a force to be reckoned with. We hope Liz and Jen have a rest of their trip out in LA, and enjoy being home for the holidays.  Next stop for Liz is Tokyo, and then who knows?! (We personally think she is going to be our next girl to be on the cover of Vogue, we have done it 19 times before so we are speaking from experience)

Get Ready...

Model Maggie (from Colorado), with Photographer Rodney Ray, and DP Tawan Bazemore

We are currently in the Hollywood Hills at the Dolls Model Development house.  This weekend we are doing some test shoots for our newest discoveries.  Our team of scouts found them in their hometowns, and now they have joined us for their first photo shoots.  We will have a full post next week with video and more photos of these amazing girls, but we just wanted to give you a little teaser of what is going down with us this weekend. 

Also, as a side note, are you guys following us on Instagram?  Our name is @pulsemgmt, make sure to check it out if you haven't already.

Rachel Cook for Lorac Cosmetics

Pulse Mgmt model Rachel Cook is looking amazing in this huge promotional display for LORAC Cosmetics.  LORAC posted the above photo on their Instagram, to show the set up for an event they did in NYC to promote their Spring 2014 line.  We think they picked a perfect model for their line, and we love seeing Rachel's beautiful face printed up on such a huge display!  The picture has almost 700 likes on LORAC's post, and we can see why.  Congrats Rachel!

Carson for Chinti and Parker

Carson is taking over the London fashion scene.  She is the only model featured in the look book for Chinti and Parker's S/S 2014 line, and she is on the front page of their website.  If you haven't heard of Chinti and Parker yet, don't worry you will be familiar with them soon enough.  The brand has been featured in every major fashion magazine including: Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, InStyle, Nylon, Interview (one of my personal favorites), and many more.  Check out this link if you still need more proof. Another amazing job for Carson, this girl is on a roll!

Rachel Cook is Heating Up LA

Rachel Cook sure has been busy since she arrived in LA.  She shot with Kyle Goldie, the famed swimwear photographer.  He does photography for Sports Illustrated, which is as big as it gets when it comes to swimwear.  When he wanted to photograph Rachel, we were thrilled (and that's putting it mildly).

She also shot these images with Christopher Shintani, another Los Angeles based photographer.  When looking at his profile we think all of his work is amazing, but these images of Rachel are clear stand outs.  And not just because we are biased.  The simplicity of these images are stunning, and any model or photographer knows that the simple pictures are sometimes the hardest to perfect because there are no distractions to hide behind.  We love these images of Rachel, and are so impressed with the work she has been producing in LA.

Olivia Hamilton on the Runway in Japan

Olivia Hamilton is continuing her streak of great bookings while in Japan.  These pictures are from her walking the runway for the Hiromichi Takano show.  Takano is one of the biggest names in Japanese fashion, as detailed in this article.  Olivia is definitely making her mark while modeling in Japan, and she and her mom Leslie are having the adventure of a lifetime together over there.  We can't wait to see what this beauty from Colorado has up next.  Don't worry, we will keep you posted.

Charlee Pilon Shoots with Darren Tieste

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your nearest and dearest.  In continuing with our week of gratitude, we have to say we are thankful for our model, Charlee Pilon, for consistently having such impressive photo shoots! I don't know if she can take a bad picture.  These images are for a shoot she did in LA with Darren Tieste.  If you click on the link now, she is the cover image for his website. So clearly he is just as smitten with Charlee as we are.  He has photographed for Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Cosmopolitan, so having Charlee up on his site is a major coup!  Way to go Charlee, keep up the good work.
