My January 2014 cover for L.A. Parent featuring model, Jack Wald (represented by Zuri model and talent) in his Lacrosse uniform! Go, Dragons!
I first met Jack at the L.A. Parent ‘Shooting Star’ cover contest event at the Westfield Mall a few months ago. I was there along with 3 other photographers, photographing all the kids who wanted a chance to win one of 3 covers. Hundreds of kids were photographed that day; I actually wasn’t the photographer who photographed Jack BUT I did notice how charismatic he is. I approached his mom about getting Jack into acting and print modeling. We ended up doing a photo shoot for his headshot and comp card a few weeks later, and with the photos we took, he was able to meet and sign with one of the top kids talent agencies here in Los Angeles. Not only that, he won one of the 3 covers (the cover I photographed here). He is a natural and I am really excited to see all the amazing things he will do this year.
