Portraits Of Johnny At Elite

3 December 2014

Our Digital Editor Sophie Mayanne creates a cinematic mood enhancing the charismatic character of Johnny at Elite Models. Johnny has a beautiful ability to bring about a variety of emotions while in front of the lens, taking us on a whirlwind of laughter, contemplation and assertiveness. His beautifully angled face holds an air of wisdom, but when smiling we are reminded of his boyish charm.

Sophie Mayanne’s use of dramatic angles and natural lighting set Johnny in a familiar tone, commanding power whilst wearing classic yet contemporary YMC jeans matched with a SupremeBeing jacket styled by Dasha Kova. But he is quickly jolted into a seemingly nostalgic dream world, as he wears a Petals+Peacocks bucket hat with a Matthew Miller T-shirt.

With the combination of his versatile expressions and all around charm, we long to see more from Johnny.
