Photographer Jordan Ferreira @jordanferreirax presents this fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the new face model Valentín Gabas @valengabas represented by Adon Management @adon_management.
The photographer came across Valentin on Instagram while he was casting for his trip to Buenos Aires. “I was looking for guys for my new book series called “Chico Chico,” and I came across his profile. I reached out immediately and asked if he was a model. While he had never modeled before, he was really interested and agreed to participate. From the moment we started shooting I could tell he was a natural. His confidence, body movements, and facial expressions created a wide range of looks.”
“I wanted to create an editorial that captured his raw talent. Before he worked with any other photographer, agency, coach, etc, this editorial shows exactly who Valentin was when I found him.”
Jordan and Valentín worked together to create diverse images that gave the model an opportunity to express himself. He hopes to one day work with big brands, and it looks like this shoot set him on a trajectory to achieve those goals since immediately after he was signed by Adon Management in Buenos Aires.
The equipment used was a Cannon Mark III DSLR with two Profoto B10 lights when necessary as well as natural lighting. Valentin was playful, friendly, and confident. He knew he looked sexy but was never conceited.
