How I Met Guinevere van Seenus
….I was getting to know the booker’s at the Elite Modeling agency in Beverly Hills at the time. It was a beautiful day in Los Angeles on September 15th, 1995. I had some time to contact the agency after my morning shoot to see if there were any new models to test in the afternoon as my schedule would allow. They checked back after about an hour to tell me they had a young model to send for that afternoon. She was already on her way over to my hotel for hair and makeup. That was perfect, because I knew by the time my makeup artist got her ready, the sun would be setting over the Pacific, where I liked to shoot at Venice Beach. They also informed that it was the model’s birthday and that she just turned 18, her name was Guinevere van Seenus. I waited with excitement and anticipation as I always do when I am working with a new talent for the first time. Little did I know the person who was about to arrive would soon become an international super model.
I opened the door to my room to greet Guinevere, the first thing that I noticed was her size. She was unlike the really skinny girls that regularly appear on the catwalk, this girl had meat on her bones and a nice full bosom.
The next thing that I noticed were the cheek bones and the eyes, realizing instantly that she was photogenic. Then it was time to see if she could model.
Guinevere could model all right. Confident in her body, easy to work with and a face that has natural expression, a rare find. A couple of month’s later, the agency informed me that she was flown over to Paris where she took the city by storm. The rest is fashion modeling history.
Confident, determined and ready to make a small fortune….
