Photo shoot of the Day: Michael Whittaker by James Demitri

A favorite photographer of mine James Demitri just shot up and coming model Michael Whittaker for Culture Magazine and as you can see the results are amazing! The shoot, entitled 'Boy Wonder' appears in Culture-yearbook. I have enjoyed James work many times before, originally from Cyprus, James Demitri brought his photographic gifts to Sydney at 12, and I became a fan after seeing his first book of images last year 'Portfolio' which featured a selection of fashion editorial and personal projects his incredible body of work!

I had not heard of Michael before, he is a 'new face' at DNA model management. His face might be new, but his face is also one of the strongest, most striking faces I have seen with his piercing blue eyes. Michael has a face and look which although contemporary also has a strong feel of the past. I am certain he will not be a 'new' face for long.
