Photographer Daniel Jae Oliva @bydanieljae worked with the handsome model Dan Hearn @dannhearn represented by Pretty Men Management @prettymenmgmt to present this gorgeous fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online!
“Dan and I met over Instagram,” says the photographer Daniel Jae Oliva, “and my goal for this shoot was to give Dan more for his book. Dan is new to modeling and has great potential. When I was reviewing his book, I knew right away that I wanted to give him that mature, fashionable look.”
The moodboard was actually different from what the team had intended to produce in the first place. “I started with a minimalist moodboard but Nikko Panti, the stylist, took the wheel and direction to give the shoot more of an edge from what I have presented him and I am definitely grateful for that. And also, with the help of Ashley Jensen, our hair and make-up artist, we were able to push the shoot to a more fashionable vibe,” says the photographer.
The shoot took place in Malibu, California, “the only place I go to if I wanted to shoot at the
beach,” says Daniel Jae Oliva.
The model was styled by Nikko Panti @nikkopanti @misterbaks and Ashley Jensen @_ashley_jensen did the grooming for this photoshoot which looks amazing and really fresh. Dan is wearing an array of clothes from various brands like Kimia Arya, LOUPN, Saint Owen, Helen Anthony, Fane Men, Philip Ayler, Homme Plisse by Issey Miyake, Dior, Dries van Noten, Neil Barrett, Miscreants, ASOS Man, Jean Baptiste Rautureau, Ocean Rebel, Bottega Veneta, Rick Owens, and Gucci.
“Dan is new, yes, but he is aware of what works for him and had followed directions
really well. He exudes confidence and really fun to work with. I am really excited for him to be getting this opportunity and am confident that he will do really well in the industry.”
