New Face: Teodor At MRA

6 November 2013

We were first introduced to Teodor earlier on this year when the brilliant Alina Negoita spotted the Romanian beauty and photographed him in an intimate portrait series, her first work for Boys by Girls, showing the then unsigned Teodor's clear potential in the industry. Lo and behold, soon after the shoot Teodor was signed to MRA Modeling Management. Since his shoot with Alina, Teodor has been keeping busy, working with some wonderful people including shooting an editorial for ELLE magazine.

We were keen to see how the lovely Romanian beauty had been progressing and got Alina and Teodor to meet up once again. Here, they bring us this stunning portrait series that document just how far Teodor has come in the last few months. From these photographs we can see how much more relaxed he is in front of the camera lens. You are really drawn into him, which is helped by Alina's subtle use of grainy texture in the photographs against the softness of the light and environment. Its wonderful to see a new face is such raw form; Teo looks youthful and effortless which is achieved without the need for styling. Its clear from this series that we will hopefully be seeing much more of this rare breed, Teodor has all that he needs to make it as a successful model.

In-keeping with her intimate portrait shooting style, Alina also shot the amazing Miles Langford for our latest issue, "Lessons", which you can buy here. See the online teaser for the shoot here.
