Internationally published fashion photographer Mcklyn Valenciano @mcklyncole has created this editorial exclusively for Vanity Teen online with the gorgeous newly signed model Jordan Tibbets @jraedann represented by Muse Management @musemanagement.
“Born and raised on the beautiful island of Kauai I have always been inspired by the movement of natural lighting in how it can shape, change color and create an emotion captured in a second of time. I have a passion for creating timeless imagery through the expression of people, movement and energy.”Mcklyn Valenciano
In this fashion editorial the photographer and model worked together to incorporate the look and feel of male supermodels of the ’90s with strong lines, deep shadows and a memorable face. Shot using a Canon 5D Mark III and natural light in Portland, Oregon, the photographer managed to create that ’90s look we pursued, playing with the shapes created by the natural light and the super model aesthetic.
Clean, simple, timeless, and model-centric are some of the words that describe the photographer’s style, and moody, insightful, inspiring and simplicity is how the photographer described this photoshoot. We believe he did an amazing job creating such simple and sexy photoshoot. The simplicity is showcased through the simple and clean styling, with only a pair of vintage 90’s Levi’s 501 and a mustard sweater by John Varvatos. The model’s body is enough to complete the shot.
This editorial is really special for us because it captures the essence of our magazine, to help young talents to find themselves and trust their dreams. The discovery of new faces is one of our main goals, and this photoshoot saw a new model being born.
“Jordan has been scouted a number of times but hadn’t truly seen it himself. Once he saw these photos, he believed it and finally believed in himself. His confidence blossomed. A model was born that day.”
