This is Danny Denkmayer – one of the final four in Channel 4 and E4’s hit TV show “Playing It Straight“. The 2012 Series 2 contestant spent the series at Hacienda de los Hombres in Spain before being eliminated in the final episode. So – why was he in the studio? Simple : we were shooting for another set of adverts for Attitude, and the boys at Lick had drafted him in 🙂
He does however, rather handily, have a great fashion look about him anyway! In a departure from the normal style of shooting for Lick, the top image was shot with the intention to show more versatility on Danny’s part – I think it works 😉
The adverts were to boost the launch of Lick’s new “Fit As” campaign, with their bright red hipsters, and Danny and Steve were photographed at the same time (more shots from Steve to come shortly…).
Shooting straight after a 12 hour overnight flight isn’t something I’d ever planned on doing, but hey – I managed it this time (even if the models got to lie down and rest a lot more than me!)
Of course it’s easy to stick to a look that is consistent, and the final image that was chosen by the guys at lick to run in the magazine is below. I like it – and with the copy around it, it really worked – but I just can’t help think Danny could go a fair way in the fashion modelling world too… 🙂
What do we think…? 🙂
Hmmm. That’s just reminded me – it’s about time I updated my online portfolio I guess. So many new shots, and I’ve not had the time to upload them onto here! Oooops…
