As part of its celebration of Black History Month, NIKE has created a limited edition of shoes, socks, shorts, shirts and hats to honour the athletes and coaches of colour who have impacted positively on the sport. Here is Remi shot by JUCO for the campaign.
This year, the honorees are Theotis Beasley (skateboard), Kevin-Prince Boateng (soccer), Jerry Rice (football), Brianna Rollins (track & field), C. Vivian Stringer (basketball) and John Thompson (basketball).
A portion of the proceeds will go to organizations that cater to underprivileged youth through sports.
Always willing to be bold and try new weird and interesting concepts the team at GADAL linked with our friends Mitch and Frank of Select Nishikigoi Caribbean for take one of "Swimming With The Fishes!" Straight from a previous shoot at 5am that morning Danielle and newbie model Tremaine took to the water - James of Pin Point Photography was on lens; our friends at Republic 21 supplied the swimwear and kimono; Kwame of Idea Manifest worked on post production and here is a sneak-peek of the images produced.
With fish ranging in price from USD$ 100 to USD $48, 000Select Nishikigoi Caribbean is the top of the food-chain when it comes to select koi; add a kimono, swimsuit, swim trunks, faux diamond bracelet from Republic 21, Armani sunglasses and some select models into the mix and you're literally swimming with the money.
'Take Two' will blow things...well; clear out of the water!
GADAL's newest model Marc-Lee has certainly started with a bang! Straight out of the starting blocks and onto the cover of the much anticipated second book of erotic poet Robert Gibson: SEDUCTION
Robert Gibson aka 'Passion Poet' as he is affectionately known was born in Barbados and is considered to be the 'ZANE' of the Caribbean poetry world. His first book EROTIC being a sold-out success! His second highly anticipated book is expected to be the 'climax' to his first one and he enlisted the help of GADAL Model Management Inc. to make the cover as hot as the inside. While we can't let the cat out of the bag before the official book launch we can give you a sneak peek...
Its the sudden-ness of it all that grabs you...one minute the 6' 2" island boy is posting physique images to us here in Barbados at GADAL (and in the background one can see his refrigerator- amateurish one might say- but very authentic).
Six short months later he's preparing to visit his international agency after being offered a contract! (keep watching this space and we'll disclose later) It couldn't get any more real than that! It's amazing what some pics in the kitchen can do.
Suddenly the images go from amateurish snap-shots in front of the refrigerator to sizzling hot ones as shot by jamaican photography prodigy Wade Rhoden; add the styling of fellow jamaican stylist Michael Atkinson and you have the start of a model career as sudden as a storm at sea.
