FASHION MODELING 101
you might ask yourself, why Pinnacle Design Center would offer a fashion modeling class? good question, and we think you'll find the answer makes a lot of sense.
steve trapero began photography in 2004. a short 2 years later, he began shifting his focus toward creative, fashion photography.
we (steve trapero & yvonne xu) opened Pinnacle Design Center in 2008. during our first year of business, we were approached 3 separate times, by 3 separate people, each interested in partnering with us to create a fashion modeling class. ultimately, we decided to do it all by ourselves, seeing that others saw an obvious connection between what we were already doing, and running a modeling class.
in summer 2009, we launched fashion modeling 101. it has always been our goal at Pinnacle Design Center to provide an excellent educational experience in a practical and fun way.
this class will introduce you to the fashion modeling industry. our class will give you valuable information that will jump start your modeling career by between 5-10 years. you will learn posture, walks and turns for the runway, social etiquette, public speaking, make-up and hair, wardrobe, posing in front of the camera, the business of modeling, building your portfolio, how to start your modeling career, contact info for many top modeling agencies, and much more.
in fall 2011, we hired a new fashion modeling instructor shannon johnson. in 2001, shannon began her modeling career at age 14 working with travis winkey of baltimore, md fame. today, shannon continues to be a full-time freelance model with more than 10 years experience in print, runway (with over 200 fashion shows to date), fashion show event planning, promotions, marketing, acting and hosting her own tv show "shantelevision" (from 2008 to 2010) with juju films, and is currently in production of her own series "shan jaysio tv" (entertainment). some of her clients have been beata dirycz, leatherette heart, arthur st. john, travis winkey, kate heihmenn, ashley noelle studios, leila hauk, melissa hoffman, didi bell, eloquent magazine, and trina merry.
from a young age shannon knew she wanted something different out of life. first, she moved away from baltimore in pursuit of greater opportunities elsewhere. and don't let shannon's external beauty fool you, she's pretty tough. in fact, later she joined the armed services and is a u.s. army veteran! true fact, no kidding!?!
then in 2009, shannon moved to los angeles to pursue her goals and aspirations here on the west coast. as our fashion modeling instructor and runway coach, shannon incorporates a self-confidence program that she herself used at an early age. she integrates this program to help our students realize who they are on the inside, and how to incorporate that in their life, preparing them for success. we're really excited about shan teaching at Pinnacle Design Center! she's very passionate about what she does for a living! we love her, and you will too!
