Portraits of David Valensi

7 March 2012

This week we provide you with an exclusive portrait series of promising new AMCK face David Valensi, shot by Cecilie Harris.

Valensi's charm and good looks can be counted in every last freckle as he takes our breath away in this sequence of pictures by Cecilie. With his 6ft2, David has presence behind any camera and that is clearly evident in this gorgeous portrait series, and, with those deep brown eyes, he has the power to draw you straight under his hunky spell. This London lad knows how to work the camera and makes light work for our Cecilie. Experimenting with both soft tones and black and whites, this set of pictures are not only raw and simplistic, they are undoubtedly beautiful, capturing Valensi in a sequence of serene and innocent shots.

Not only has David shot for Paul Smith, features on the Ones To Watch and Attitude Style Magazine's New Faces of 2011, he has also stared in a TV commercial. It seems as though we are not the only ones who are falling for his cheeky smile and charm!
