The Dramatic Good Looks of Elodie Tusac
The Dramatic Good Looks of Model Elodie Tusac
Elodie Tusac is one of those rare fashion models who makes the most of every shoot. She is clever and graceful with props as small as a necklace or handbag and exhibits a commanding presence even when set against the most imposing backgrounds . Her superb physical awareness results in elegant, striking poses that are very hard to teach.
I met Elodie for the first time in a show billed as Houston Swim Week. A disorganized, poorly promoted disaster, it mainly featured stock from the boutique that hosted it, started an hour late, and was attended almost exclusively by the models’ families. Bad as it was, the show still resulted in relationships with a few excellent young models who were just starting out and who also turned out to be terrific people. Elodie is one of them.
Though I kept up with Elodie, and we occasionally corresponded, it was not until a year later that we met again. Elodie took me up on an old offer to shoot, and I wasn’t about to pass it up. Elodie needed portfolio shots to present to agencies. When our July shoot day rolled around, Elodie and her mom, Monica, arrived with enough designer clothing, shoes, and jewelry to stock an impressive pop-up store. Eldodie also recruited her friend, Lisa Morena, owner of A Touch of Artistry Makeup. Lisa, is an outstanding makeup artist, and made a huge difference in the finished images.
I really prefer to mix studio and location images in a portfolio shoot, but this July day, made that impossible. We stayed indoors. That proved no limitation to Elodie. (I would find out in a later shoot, just how good Elodie is on location, but that’s a different story!)
Enjoy the photos. And keep an eye out for this beautiful, intelligent, and extremely personable young model.
If you are a photographer, art director, or business in need of top print modeling talent, you can reach Elodie through her agent Revalushion Management, in Houston.
