Portraits Of Alex Bouchard

3 February 2014

London based photographer Sam Copeland catches up with Alex Bouchard at SUPA Model Management in this series of lovely portraits. Alex has transformed since we featured him last year, into his striking features and cool attitude.

This Canadian boy was first discovered in the night shade of Montreal. Alex lists ‘helping people’ as one of his hobbies and has a sense of honesty and realism about his demeanour. Stylist Ed Lloyd mixes Alex’s own clothing with a cape and kimono, to create an authentic feel that invites us inside to Alex’s world - a boy with a hard shell and a soft heart. Alex also prides himself in his love of cars, and believe it or not, the circus.

Alex is already creating a buzz with his strong face and personality, and this seasonwalked for Costume National, Katie Eary, KTZ, SIbling and John Galliano.
