New Face: Maarten at M Models

20 November 2013

One of our favorite things to do is to keep you up to date not only on all our lovely boys here in London, but also across the globe. So today we would like to introduce you to our new friend Maarten over at Magali Gless Model Management in Paris. It is always nice to see a new face photographed in a stripped back un-styled shoot, again captured by Parisian photographer, Magdalena Lawniczak. Magdalena has shot for us a number of times capturing some other gorgeous new boys such as Jules and Bjorn, and we adore the simple elegance she achieves in her photos.

Maarten who is half German, half Belgian, is a captivating young man; with his soft wavy hair and androgynous features its clear to see why he has been scouted so many times before he became signed. Maarten, who was studying fashion at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, has put his education on hold to take on the modelling world, but his passion and energy for this industry is very apparent in his striking portraits. We can’t wait to see more of this one.
