Most, if not all, photographers we love have a signature style. Dana Pennington is no exception – his shots stand out for their uniqueness in terms of light and contrast. From serene gardens to edgy alleyways to even a simple room, his backdrops always seem to make for captivating canvases on which our girls stand out. We love the way he illuminates each model in his shots, immediately drawing the audience’s eye on them. Check out some of our favorites below. Thank you, Dana for your awe-inspiring work!

Obviously, we could never come close to replicating the iconic work of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. Idolized by girls and guys alike (understandably), the SI Swim covers have long been a coveted spot for aspiring models worldwide. So, we decided to make this dream come true for a handful of the lovely ladies of Nous Models in an exclusive photoshoot for Nous Zine titled – what else – Nous Illustrated!

As a token of our love and appreciation for the famous SI Swim signature looks, Nous Illustrated is a fun expression of the growing talent here at Nous Models that we are amazed by every day. Captured by one of our favorite photographers Bogdan Morozovskiy, this featurette aims to inspire you to go for the gold. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Capturing golden hour – that delicate time frame just after a sunrise or before a sunset – is not an easy feat. Fortunately, we can rely upon one of the best in the game, Steve Fan, to do it for us! Steve’s shots are among the most beautiful as they get, and his technique for lighting leaves us mesmerized. On top of that, his personality is equally as golden; our models continually rave about his down-to-earth nature and great directional advice, making him a favorite to work with.

Scroll through to see all the gorgeous looks of Alex, Bridget, Polina and Taylor as they are transformed into radiant silhouettes amongst soft meadows and edgy coastlines. Thank you, Steve for your stunning creations!

We were beyond excited to see Wasé Chief’s gorgeous face on the cover of R Magazine! In the Hawaiian mag’s chic holiday edition, Wasé kills it wearing a fun, black & white printed dress for the cover look and accessorizes with festive pops of red. Inside the glossy pages, you’ll find her looking stunning in teal blue evening wear and a bold, monochromatic purple ensemble – both perfect for the wintertime soirees coming up on your calendar. Seriously, is there anything this girl doesn’t look good in?!

Take a look at Wasé’s portfolio and follow her on Instagram.

A favorite photographer among our models- and all of us here at Nous HQ- is the one and only Lucas Passmore. His photos are unmistakable: think simple, vulnerable and tastefully sexy all at the same time, which is no small achievement! A master at bringing out the strongest attributes and fierce confidence of every girl he works with, when he’s not testing you can find Lucas shooting for some of our favorite brands like Rails and Chloe Oliver or on the pages of magazines like Bisous, Angeleno, Cosmo or even Maxim!

Lucas’s funny, vibrant and energetic personality is incredibly infectious to everyone around him – ironically, it’s kind of a contrast to his sultry photography style. His ability to capture beauty in it’s most pure form continues to amaze us, so we can easily say that our obsession with Lucas isn’t ending anytime soon (but, we’re more than okay with that).

Thank you Lucas! You have taught our girls so much and provided them with valuable experience that has helped them be the successful women that they are today. We’ve seriously enjoyed the past few years of working with you, and are looking forward to many more to come.

The holidays are filled with sugar, spice, and everything nice. But sometimes, like when it’s time to prep for those final exams, we’re not always feeling so warm and fuzzy. For the days that you just need to get up and go, rely on Rebel8: our new favorite one-stop destination for a simple, easy going style that is perfect for the hectic holiday season.

As an added cool factor, Rebel8 is one of the few brands left to rebel -pun intended- against the digital age; their threads feature original works of art, meaning many of their graphics are hand-illustrated by artists like the legendary Mike Grant. These fun graphic tees are only a taste of the casual-cool styles to choose from: between comfy denims and amazing sweatshirts, your closet will seriously be thanking you later (and so will your boyfriend, whose hoodie collection will “mysteriously” reappear).

In the brand’s new winter collection, our girl Wasé Chief perfects an “I Woke Up Like This” look that will easily transition from class to Secret Santa shopping for your BFFLs, or yourself, we’re not judging! Throw on a rad crew neck, some low-rise denims and pair with your favorite pair of Converse to make for the ultimate casual-cool look (and leave all the frill and fluff for your Christmas tree decorating). Shot by one of our favorite photographer/stylist duos – Adam Rindy and Honor Hamilton, and beauty by the lovely Jessie Bishop, the Rebel8 lookbook sums up our favorite looks for keeping it cool during the holidaze, and all year ‘round.

Here at Nous, we’re always on the lookout for new talent of all kinds. Sometimes we find them, and sometimes they find us. This summer, we were lucky enough to be approached by Yazzi Williams, a photography blogger who was in town from Australia. When it comes to a test photoshoot, Yazzi is pretty much a one stop shop! A talented photographer, makeup artist and stylist, we were so thrilled that she wanted to work with us. Bringing out soft, feminine qualities in the girls, and capturing perfect golden hour moments, her work is exactly what we were looking for. During her short stay here, we were able to coordinate eleven beautiful photoshoots. All of our girls loved her, and learned so much from the experience. Yaz, this one’s for you! Thank you so much for all of your hard work; we can’t wait until your next trip out here! Here’s a look at some of our favorite moments. To see more of her amazing work, or if you have any questions for her, check out her blog, Love Yaz Photo.
