Int’l Model + Influencer Angelina Galt

Q: How difficult was it to get signed to a major agency?

A: In some ways it was difficult and, in some ways, not. When I was starting my carrier and nobody has heard my name, it was difficult to get in the loop. But having worked really hard and built up a large portfolio I was able to sign with my first agency. After that first agency, other agencies have opened up doors to me. It all depends on the amount of work that you are willing you put in.

Q: Have you always had a mother agent? If so, what are the advantages of having one?

A: I didn’t always have a mother agency, but I am now signed to one on a short contract. Having a mother agent is very helpful in the beginning as it can connect you to agencies around the world. They are like the middleman.

Q: Where did you inherit your innate style?

A: I have always experimented with style from a young age. I went through almost every “phase” of dressing up that you can imagine and, in the end, found my sweet spot. My current style is a mix of everything I have tried and truly reflects my inner self. Style isn’t money and it can’t be bought with it.

Q: What was it like growing up in your hometown? Do you ever visit and do they recognize you?

A: I never quite got to grow up in my hometown. I was born in Russia then moved to Thailand at the age of 2. Thailand is a beautiful and unique place that has thought me things I would have never learned elsewhere. Sadly, I have not gotten a chance to Visit since we left to come to America. I hope to go back for a trip in the near future.

Q: How did you book your first cover? Through agency or publicist?

A: Neither, I booked my first cover through my manager. While we were building up my portfolio, a magazine reached out to us asking to have a shoot and interview, to which of course I said yes!

Q: What’s next for you?

A: I plan to sign with multiple agencies around the world. I also am currently working on my Angelina Galt foundation, that helps talented children reach their goals.

Q: Any community service involvement?

A: The Angelina Galt Foundation is a non-profit organization made only to raise money for children. While doing community service is a great way of giving back to the world, I wanted to start my own foundation.

Q: What words of advice would offer aspiring talent and models?

A: First of all, believe in yourself. Seriously. No matter what anybody says and no matter how many times you think you have failed. Keep fighting for it and it will be yours. Enjoy yourself at all times and be the best that you can. Don’t pretend to be anyone else to get noticed because you want people to fall in love with you. If you become your authentic self, people will be drawn to that kind of energy.

 

Angelina’s bio:

Angelina was born in Nokhodka, a port city in the Russian Far East. In her lifetime, she traveled a lot and even lived in different parts of the world. At the age of 1, Angelina moved with her parents to Thailand, where she studied two languages; English & Thai. Ever since she was a small girl, she has absorbed the culture and manners of high society from the nanny who used to work in the Royal family of Thailand.

Beginning at 7, Angelina studied in a British school. After moving to the US, she attended a private school that allowed her to balance school and her burgeoning modelling career. In addition to modelling, Angelina is actively involved in extracurriculars like swimming, dance, singing and horseback riding.

At 15, Angelina signed an exclusive contract with a modelling agency, while already having some major fashion bookings prior to that. As her star continues to rise, Angelina has a slew of major covers and spreads coming up. Angelina is looking forward to signing with a major agency, and developing her foundation for the arts, and announcing major projects on the horizon!

Bring a Trailer Introduces New Premium Services

BRING A TRAILER INTRODUCES PLUS AND WHITE GLOVE PREMIUM SERVICES FOR A CUSTOM SELLING EXPERIENCE

The Plus Service includes professional photography and listing assistance while the White Glove Service provides sellers of high-end collector vehicles with a concierge listing experience with a customizable menu of services and direct communication with Bring a Trailer staff.

Online collector car auction host Bring a Trailer has expanded its available services with two additional ways to help sellers and buyers connect. In addition to its current $99 Classic listings, the site now offers Plus listings which include professional photography and writing consultation as well as the new White Glove Service which provides assistance to sellers through the process from start to finish – custom tailoring the listing services to the needs of the seller. A 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is the first collector car to be listed using Bring a Trailer’s White Glove Service and will sell at no-reserve on the Bring a Trailer Premium Services landing page, bringatrailer.com/premium.

Bring a Trailer’s new Plus listings offer sellers the same features that users are familiar with but adds professional photography services courtesy of its photography partner Snappr as well as staff consultations to help sellers show their automobile in its best light. This will help buyers better communicate the details of their automobile to the Bring a Trailer audience leading to a better experience for both. The new service charges a flat rate of $349.

For owners of rare and valuable collector vehicles or vehicle collections, the new, top-tier White Glove Service custom tailors an exclusive catalog of listing services to the specific needs of each seller. This custom selling experience can include professional photography as well as writing and curation of the listing, but there is no limit to the marketing which can be done with this option through both internal and external promotion. Pricing for the White Glove Service is dependent on the services desired. Both Plus and White Glove listings can now also be hosted for up to 21 days.

 “Our mission is to simplify the selling and buying process as much as possible,” said Bring a Trailer Founder Randy Nonnenberg. “These two additional methods of listing an automobile on our site are about providing more to our customers. More convenience, more services and, ultimately, more great cars. We are excited to be able to connect cars and car people on our site through our Premium and White Glove Service listings.”

Bring a Trailer’s new services is now available and hosts its first sale, a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, at no-reserve immediately. Click here to see the listing, and here to learn more about the two new services.

Harvey Stein “Mexico Between Life and Death”

Dunn. Harvey Stein is an internationally renowned street photographer who photographs people all over the world. His work spans from Mexico to New York City, Italy, India and many other places. His most recent book titled “Mexico Between Life and Death” explores the idea of humanity living in a state of limbo, that we normally call “life,” prior to death. He travelled to numerous cities in Mexico throughout the course of 14 trips in 18 years to complete this thorough body of work.

During his presentation on the book at the Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington DC, Stein discussed his style and the photographic techniques he uses to tell the stories in his work. He was specific about his straight forward approach towards photographing his subjects to express stark emotion. Stein likes to photograph his subject matter head on and without smiles to show the people he photographs in a natural and whole form. He uses the composition of people, shapes, 2D vs. 3D planes, and a combination of photographic techniques in his work to create images that challenge the eye. He uses film as an additional mode of genuine expression in his art.

Stein makes the point that although he travelled to Mexico for almost a decade for this series, he does not know Spanish. This did not hinder his ability to interact with his subjects, which is a preferred means of working with the people he photographs.

“Through the Lens”

Stunning Photography
Presented at Madrigal’s Sausalito Wine Salon & Gallery
Continuing Bay Area California Artist Series

On Thursday, January 31st, Madrigal Family Winery’s Sausalito Wine Salon & Gallery will open “Through the Lens” the latest exhibit in its Bay Area Art and Wine series. The exhibition features the work of Rose Hodges and Mary Serphos and local photographers, Jeff Greendorfer, Patricia Gatti and Davide Antonio, curated by Shiva Pakdel. The opening reception will be held from 6:00 – 8:30 pm in Sausalito. The exhibit is on view from January 24 – February 27. The Tasting Salon is open from 12-7pm Thursday through Monday.

Chris Madrigal, Madrigal Family Winery’s Founder & President states, “We love supporting our local artists and photographers, who are committed to a skill and to creating their own personal vision and appreciating life, very much like we are at the winery up in Calistoga. One of my favorite things to do on a cool winter evening is looking at art and listening to music while sipping a fantastic glass of wine.”

About Rose Hodges
Rose discovered photography while studying Graphic Design.  A well-known photographer came to the University to lecture sharing his still life and view camera work.  After many years of searching, Rose knew immediately this was her calling. Rose assisted other photographers for 5 years in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City.  She decided to open her studio in San Francisco where she currently works.

 

About Mary Serphos
Mary started taking photos as a child, inspired by her father’s devout love of photography. In 1998, on a trip to Thailand, she used her first digital SLR camera and was hooked. Making the move to digital from film proved to be a long slow process but now it’s pure passion where Mary fuses photo imagery design with digital art. Please check out Mary’s Instagram gallery for a comprehensive look at over 7,000 of her artful images.

Mary has been exhibiting her work in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1998. She currently has an exhibit at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA and teaches iPhonography classes in Marin (see classes for more info) Mary grew up in New York and moved to San Francisco from NY in 1996 where she lived for 11 years then to Nosara Costa Rica for two years and has made her home in Fairfax, Marin, CA for the past 7 years.

About Jeff Greendorfer
In the earliest days of his childhood, Jeff has marveled at and been fascinated by cars, their designs, their curves and more. He saw them as works of art, especially pre-1960s cars. Since his early 20’s, photography has enabled him to capture subjects that have drawn him in, be it an amazing array of brachen ferns, the tail fins of a 1959 Cadillac, or the fluid-looking chrome grill of an early Bugatti.
