Elliot Stevens For APCY

6 February 2013

We are slowly coming to the end of our wonderful series of preview features for our fourth print issue ‘A Place Called Youth’ and today we have another tasty slice of the issue for you. In true Boys by Girls style, once we found out that the lovely Elliot Stevens at Select Model Management knew how to skate, we knew we had to check it out. Just as we visited the homes of many of our boys for their editorial shoots, we let Elliot take Cecilie Harris on a spur of the moment skating adventure to visit his favourite skating hangouts, showing her the up close and personal side to his sport. This boy is seriously amazing on his blades.

Currently placed among some of the finest rollerbladers in the world we felt privileged to capture Elliot doing what he does best. It’s not everyday that you get to see such talent in person. After previously having shot him also for our third issue "The 4th Floor", it was wonderful to get to know him more up close and personal. Apparently there were rollerblades, strawberrys and pizza involved at the shoot, which sounds like a fabulous combination.

Make sure to check out the full "A Place Called Youth" feature, complete with a cheeky interview thrown in. If you don't already have a copy of the new Boys by Girls issue then do not fear, for copies should still be available at some stockists (which you can find out about here) as well as from our lovely online shop!
