Meet the Models: Malloy Sells (JANI Model Management)

Meet the Models spotlights each and every model featured in Scottsdale Living — so you can get to know them better.

 How did you start modeling?

I have always been interested in modeling, but after I suffered an ankle injury and could no longer play volleyball, I decided to finally pursue my dreams and apply to modeling agencies until I was signed with JANI Model Management.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

My favorite type of modeling is runway because I love the glamorous feeling I get strutting down the runway to the latest music, all eyes on me and cameras flashing … I feel like a superstar!

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done? Why?

My favorite shoot would have to have been my shoot with Sara Zorker. I loved working with her. She has such a talented, outgoing and bubbly personality, which makes for an awesome photographer (every models dream!) We shot at an awesome location with a bunch of crazy, cool retro looks!

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?

To someone interested in modeling I would tell them to never give up on your dreams. At times it may be hard work, but in the end it all pays off when you see an absolute perfect shot or those 30 seconds of awe strutting down the runway.

How did you start modeling?

I got started modeling when Maral (the manager) was scouting at my school for a career day-type event. I looked over towards her booth, and she told me to sign up.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

The type of modeling that I like the best would be photo shoots. This is because they are normally laid-back.

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done and why?

My favorite shoot I’ve done was for Scottsdale Living. This shoot was just fun and was at a very nice resort.

Up next on Meet the Models, meet Nemi N. (from JANI Model Management), who you’ll find in our Fall 2012 issue.

How did you start modeling?

I’ve always been interested in modeling. It seemed like such an exciting career. I was so excited when people suggested that I should give modeling a try. It was a chance to follow my dream; and I fell in love!

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

I enjoy fashion photo shoots the most. It gives me a chance to experiment with exotic looks and try on fun clothes and to become, at least for a little while, someone else.

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done and why?

I don’t really have a favorite photo shoot. I have had so much fun with each of them and have found different aspects of each one memorable for a different reason.

Meet the Models: Nemi N. of JANI Model ManagementWhat’s your favorite modeling photo?

arrowsThere are many photos of which I’m proud. Picking an all-time favorite was difficult, but I finally picked this.

It is my favorite because it brought out an aspect of me that was new to me; it is captivating and beautifully captured.

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?

There’s nothing more exciting than chasing a dream. It’s definitely not easy, but if you’re passionate about it, it makes all the hard work worth it!

How did you start modeling?

My sister told me about an open call JANI Model Management was holding last November, and I couldn’t have been more excited to go. They signed me that same week.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

Photo shoots are so much fun, but my favorite is runway. It’s an adrenaline rush, and I get to show off my height!

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done and why?

The Scottsdale Living fall shoot to be honest. The location, staff and overall look were all amazing. It was very professional, and I had a blast.

Photo: Michael Franco, Trisha Y.Do you have an all-time favorite modeling photo?

arrowsAs of this moment, I like this one that the talented photographer Michael Franco took. It makes me feel comfortable and timeless when I look at it.

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?

Believe in yourself, and stick with the people who support your dream. Everyone’s a critic, and it could be tough — especially if you weren’t born with the perfect measurements, porcelain skin or the supermodel-long legs. However, if you stick to your guns, and embrace your flaws, the confidence you have in yourself will soon convince people of how awesome you really are.

Meet the Models spotlights each and every model featured in Scottsdale Living — so you can get to know them better.

Up next on Meet the Models, meet Tim S. (from JANI Model Management), who you can spot in our Fall 2012 issue.

How did you start modeling?

I first started modeling at 22 years old — not too long ago. A former coworker of mine, who had signed with the agency I currently work for (JANI Model Management), recommended that I should try it out. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to, but with all the encouragement from my friends and family, I walked into their office one day, and I have been there since.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

I prefer still photo shoots verses runway or television; although, I find all to be fun and exciting. In my experience, my agency has always worked hard at having the best photographers, stylists and all the other people you need to have a successful photo shoot, in a good setting and comfortable environment.

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done and why?

There have been a few that I’ve really enjoyed so far. I really enjoyed my most recent photo shoot for the Talking Stick Resort where I wore some Astor & Black attire that looked amazing and some of the most friendly staff and photographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with thus far.

Tim S., Photo: Michael FrancoDo you have an all-time favorite modeling photo?

arrowsThis is a photo taken by the very talented photographer Michael Franco. He really brought out and captured a sort of intense, focused, but elegant feel. Very professional. I love it because it looks amazing.

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?

I’d say confidence and believing in your self is key. It is a serious profession and can be a good career if you choose to make it so. Work hard always and conduct yourself in a way that reflects professionalism in everything you do; but most importantly, enjoy what you’re doing, and have fun.

Up next on Meet the Models, meet Sheniece B. (from JANI Model Management), who you can spot in our Fall 2012 issue.

How did you start modeling?

I have always wanted to be that girl in the magazines; I wanted to feel beautiful. I entered a contest two years ago that started it all. Now I’m here, and I love every moment of it.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

I love all aspects of modeling, but the thing that gets me most excited is when I get to portray different characters and feelings. It’s fun to see yourself in different lights.

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done and why?

I have two — one is for the jewelry line GIGIchic, and my other favorite would be a swimsuit campaign, “Fall from Summer.” These two are my favorite because there were so many wonderful people involved, and I’m very proud of the outcome.

Meet the Models: Sheniece B.Do you have an all-time favorite modeling photo?

arrowsThis photo is my favorite because it’s a look I’ve never done before. It’s so different from the way I see myself on a day-to-day basis.

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?

If this is what you want to do, do it. If it’s what makes you happy, modeling or any other job or hobby, don’t let it go. People often never find that one thing that they love doing the most. But the ones that do, shouldn’t let anything get in the way. Be yourself! Never lose the person you are, or want to become.

Fall Fashion Shoot Behind the Scenes

Behind The Scenes: Fall Fashion Photo Shoot [PHOTOS]

Herve Leger, RED Valentino, Michael Kors and more — with such fabulous clothing, shoes and accessories from both Nordstrom and Astor & Black, Scottsdale Living teamed up with a fantastic group of people last Thursday, August 23, and camped out for the day at Talking Stick Resort’s Orange Sky for its Fall 2012 issue’s fall fashion photo shoot.

And the nearly two-month process paid off. The models from JANI Model Management, Michael, Trisha, Sheniece, Nemi, Michael and Nick, looked incredible in their respective outfits; the hairstylist and makeup artist, Randee Miller and Joanna Avillar for Mane Attraction Salon, respectively, stunningly transformed the models; Katie McEndoo of Astor & Black provided and styled the men into a seemingly Mad Men-inspired look; and Kira Brown complemented the dresses with fitting shoes and accessories — all from Nordstrom at Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Not to mention the location was a beautiful backdrop to it all. The location, Orange Sky, couldn’t have been more perfect with its sleek, chic lounges and private dining areas; and let’s not forget about that view from its outdoor patio — especially during sunset.

Scottsdale Living would like to thank the team, including the photographers (Mike Mertes Cory Bergquist and Glory Shim) who captured the jaw-dropping images that will grace the pages of Scottsdale Living’s Fall 2012 issue.

Keep an eye out for it in October. We’re sure it will be difficult to miss on the stands at AJ’s and Bashas’ throughout the North Scottsdale and Paradise Valley area.
