Mum of multi-talented Jacob just shared exciting news with us that her son just got signed by a top model agent in London after our photo session in London. This is amazing as the modelling industry is very competitive and very few models get signed on the spot.
Who is Jacob Lovell? Jacob is a strong athlete and sportsman - a highly ranked tennis player who plays for and represents Surrey County. He is captain of his 1st ranked Rugby Team and Football Team, and holds the record for 100m and 200m sprint in Regional competitions. With his interesting mixed race heritage: half Sri Lankan and half British and unique look he is likely to catch the attention of fashion designers and brands bringing that heritage to the runway too. Jacob has a striking and unique look and is exceptionally tall for his young age. He has also a great fashion style including very trendy and cool street urban style. One of the few people to walk in to a top modelling agency and be offered a contract on the spot, Jacob’s future at his agency holds some major fashion campaigns to come and all at the tender age of just 16. Having met and photographed Jacob I have no doubt that his future is bright. He definitely appears to posses that special ‘grit’ that you often find in top athletes and highly accomplished people. During our photo session we did a number of different looks to showcase his versatility as a model.
Here is the feedback from mum Ruby who should definitely be proud of him and I am sure she is!
“I wanted to tell you some great news too about Jacob….. we went to all the top modelling agencies a a Walk In on Thursday armed with the album of photos I selected from your photos in a lovely black presentation leather album. We went to all the top 10 . He got offered a contract on the spot by Milk Model Management (based in Oxford Street), We then got whisked away to photo studios to have a photo shoot where some celebrity models were (also signed to the same agency ) and the photographer took some photos of him in this amazing outfits which the stylist put on Jacob. It was all very surreal! We are thrilled and the agency said they loved the photos of him in the album too. Thanks for giving him a great head start! Agency rep said this only happens twice a year when a walk in gets offered an contract on the spot so we feel very privileged:-) They’re also putting Jacob forward for a big Burberry campaign in September. All amazing news.”
