Avalon’s tapes were passed out to numerous Los Angeles nightclubs by his friend Dirt Nasty.

Interscope Records immediately signed him and a self-titled album hit the stands. “Jane Fonda,” “Mr.Right,” and “My Dick” became favorites among his fans and spread quickly through the internet.

These outgoing women provide a professional yet fun vibe to any atmosphere hosting corporate parties, special events, modeling for promotional or runway shows.

Meet Scottsdale 16’s Mel Rodriguez, who recently shared summer hair trends with Scottsdale Living.

How did you start modeling?
My parents always said I was photogenic and took me to my first casting when I was a kid to pursue it. I decided not to pursue modeling until I was 17. I started working promotional events, and then started to shoot and fell in love with it.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?
I love fashion and outdoor shoots. I love to capture the moment and create the perfect pose even when it’s awkward. Print work, commercial and live shoots!

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done?
That’s hard to choose, but one of favorites is a lingerie-angel style shoot with six-feet-long wings. I love Victoria’s Secret’s themes, so that shoot was defintely fun to film and shoot.

What’s your favorite modeling photo?
My shoot for my IMKING.com look book and eating ice cream while posing.

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?
Be patient and start a modeling portfolio, which looks professional when applying for a modeling opportunity.  Also, understand you have to shoot a few free/trade modeling shoots until you get comfortable in front of the camera. Never give up, have a great attitude and take constructive criticism well!

What is your favorite place to eat in Scottsdale?
Sushi Roku!

What is your favorite bar/nightclub in Scottsdale?
Maya (Day and Nightclub)!

Jenna Wood

Jenna Wood

Meet Jenna Wood, who recently gave Scottsdale Living a few of her favorite swimsuit trends this summer!

How did you start modeling?
I grew up dancing at a studio. When I stepped into the professional dance industry, it was important to have a modeling portfolio. It all blossomed from there once I met the right people.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?
I prefer print over runway because I’m not among the tallest girls. I like fun and sexy shoots, something tasteful yet unique.

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done?
I did a really amazing photoshoot at an abandoned potato barn a few years ago. It was a huge venue with tons of graffiti and broken glass. We got creative and had a blast.

What’s your favorite modeling photo?
My favorite photo, to this day, is a shoot I did when I was 18 by Benizo. He caught me in a perfect high-kick while wearing heels and a fedora! It’s such a beautiful shot and he is an amazing photographer.

What advice would you give someone interesting in modeling?
I would recommend practicing in the mirror. I grew up in a dance studio so I spent years in front of a wall of mirrors. It’s important when learning your angles and how to use light.

What is your favorite place to eat in Scottsdale?
I think I could eat at Sushi Roku everyday for the rest of my life. It’s definitely the freshest sushi you can find in Scottsdale, combined with a sexy atmosphere and fantastic service. Every time I walk in, they bring me a glass of my usual Malbec!

What is your favorite bar/nightclub in Scottsdale?
If I’m in the mood to get dolled up, I definitely love Maya. It’s a little taste of Vegas and they always have my favorite DJs. If I’m just trying to go out and have a beer, I stay at El Hefe Scottsdale or Bottled Blonde.

How did you start modeling?
Opportunities started right after I moved to Scottsdale and started with Scottsdale 16.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?
Print modeling is easier for me because I walk way too fast on the runway!

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done?
So far, working with Michael Franco has been my most favorite. He is absolutely amazing at what he does and he is going places!

What’s your favorite modeling photo?
Of course, it is one by Michael Franco.

What advice would you give someone interesting in modeling?
What is meant to be will happen. Work hard, stay healthy and keep your body in great condition. The confidence will show!

There are a few spots: I love Sushi Roku at W Scottsdale. I also love to go to the Gelato Spot for dessert! They have the best gelato!
