New work Simas

Today Simas is flying to Milano to work for us at Boom Models!

We wish him a good flight and a beautiful time in Milano. We will keep you updated about his stay and experiences. The new portfolio pictures we made some months ago are now on Booms website. 

After being in Shanghai for a while Simas came back to Maastricht to visit us.
He has been modeling for a few years now and has lots of experience. 

Simas is one of CJ’s handsome male models. He works out a lot at the gym to keep his body in good shape. Besides the gym he also eats very healthy food, so no fast food for Simas.. 

During the photoshoot he told us that photographers always tell him look angry at photo’s.
But who can blame them.. With a jawline like that I would look angry al day long!

Introducing the twins Sebastian & Alexander

This week we had some really nice company at CJ Models. Sebastian and Alexander came to introduce themselves and we immediately decided to make some test pictures.

These handsome boys are Mexican and lived in Peru, in Barcelona and now they live in Maastricht. So sit down grab some food and something to drink, and take a look at these beautiful pictures (boys)… 

Campaign for STRIKKS

We had the honor to capture the campaign for STRIKKS.  STRIKKS is a design studio and label for the development and making of designer knits, located in Maastricht. 

They were asked to make one of the showpieces for FashionClash. Their showpiece has been displayed in “De Bijenkorf Maastricht”. 

”Overstock are those items that don’t get sold once the season has ended. A hang for the new items is, despite efforts like slow-fashion, still the strongest trend among buyers and customers.In this showpiece, we collected over 5 items that we’re once marketed as single items. By bringing them together and by giving them that special finish plus attention we contributed to their greater value as a unique piece.
We like to call it ‘über-stock’.” 

Our fashion photographer Ruben Reehorst made beautiful pictures off the showpiece. CJ Model Floortje made the showpiece really came to life.

New Work Thessa

Thessa is one of CJ’s new faces. A while ago one of us spotted her in the train and we had to have her in our team! 

Ever since she has been doing a great job. But modeling isn’t the only thing she’s very good at. She is one of the dansers of the Kid Infusion crew with the titel of best Dutch dansers. So I wouldn’t challenge her when you’re dancing in a club.. 

For this shoot she’s wearing the new collection of SheClothes (a clothing store in Roermond). Doesn’t she look great?!
