Andy Blunt

Most of you know us as model management, but we also manage action sports athletes.  Action sports are a passion of Pulse Management President, Stacey Eastman.  Where Stacey exceeds is finding crossover opportunities for the athletes within the fashion world.  One example of this is when we booked Andy Blunt, who we represented for a few different action sports, a campaign with Abercrombie and Fitch.  This is where we differ from regular model or sports management.  We exist and thrive in both markets.  We recently got the following message from Andy, and were so touched that we had to share it with you all.

"Stacey Eastman has run Pulse Management for years.  He got me the Abercrombie job back in college and quickly became a good friend.  He didn't get me the booking by sending me out on a million auditions or just sending my info out (though he can and does send his talents' info out to all of the important contacts).  He knew how to get me in front of the decision makers and got it done.   Since then Pulse has grown immensely.  Stacey is big-time and connected to all the right people to grow his talents' careers properly.  More important than any of that is that Stacey is a good man and great guy.  He's a father and family man, active LDS and all around is one to do the right thing be it with his talent or family and friends.  He is stand-up.  When I modeled he took care of me like an older brother would and looked out for my best interests.   He handles high-fashion models as well as action sports athletes.  In fact he represents a couple of good surfers.  He has family ties to San Diego and is a surfer, snowboarder and kiteborder.  He gets San Diego and those of us that grew up there and will get you and your boys immediately and knows the surf industry..." - Andy Blunt

TBT: Polaroids of Sophia Skloss

It has been a while since we posted our last Throwback Thursday, and we think the time has come for a new one.  These are our model Sophia Skloss' polaroids from right around when we scouted her. If you have been reading our blog for awhile you know how important polaroids are, but if you haven't please click here.  These polaroids of Sophia are perfect, they showcase her, not her wardrobe and hair and makeup.  These combined with a killer book are what helped us land Sophia her exclusive booking with Burberry.  To see what else Sophia has been up to since taking these polaroids, check out this link.

Corey Scott for Kingsley Rowe

Do you all remember Corey Scott?  I bet if you saw these posts, you do.  Anyway, Corey's images from the Kingsley Rowe campaign are out, and they look fantastic.  I mean, if you didn't already want a pair of glasses seeing them on Corey will probably change your tune. We have some new test shoot pics of Corey that we will share with you soon, but in the meantime enjoy these beauties.

Modeling's New It Boy, Lucky Blue Smith

Let us start off this post by clarifying that we do not represent Lucky Blue Smith.  We have been keeping an eye on his career, as has the rest of the fashion industry along with about a half a million girls around the world.  What we know of Lucky Blue we love!  He is a teenager, who is close with his family (they all moved from their home in Utah to a 2 bedroom apartment in Los Angeles to be together while the kids started their modeling careers), and is committed to his religion.  These are the kinds of models the industry needs more of! There are a couple of great articles about Lucky Blue Smith here and here.

We never try to deny that the fashion industry can be a precarious one, to say the least.   We try to have a positive impact on the models we work with, and the industry in general. It is always nice to see that there are other people in the industry that have values and morals that they will heed to regardless of what the industry's norm may be.

Pulse Management Scout, Tamara Muth King, is also an incredible photographer.  She took the below pictures of Lucky Blue for one of his very first test shoots.  Tamara captured what the rest of the industry is seeing, a true superstar.  We couldn't be happier to have Tamara scouting for us, because she has an incredible eye.  If only she was our scout when she first shot Lucky Blue!

Pulse Management's Mother's Day Tribute

Bree (Pulse Mgmt Scout) and her son Sylver

We can't emphasize enough how much we value and appreciate mothers.  Not only in the home but their contributions to society are too big to be measured.  The Pulse Management team is made up of a lot of mothers, and we know how fiercely protective mothers are of their children.  This is why we take our jobs so seriously as model managers, because we know we are dealing with someone else's son or daughter.  Many of our scouts are mothers, along with our Chief Operating Officer, and our Head of Public Relations, and we hope they all had a happy Mother's Day.

We also love and admire our models' moms!  We have seen mothers drop everything, time and time again, to hop on a flight with their child for a photo shoot or runway show.  These mothers are their model's biggest cheerleaders and biggest supporters and we love them for it.

Scrolling through instagram we saw a few tributes to mothers from our team, that we wanted to share with you.
