#515 Michael Whittaker – if you’ve got it, FLAUNT it UPDATED


Image /Flaunt Magazine

Remember Michael Whittaker? As far as I know, he’s the only NZ male model working internationally at the moment. For the past five months he’s been based in New York, shooting copious amounts of editorial, but recently he’s been working in Milan and Paris, and word on the street is that he’ll be showing up on the European catwalks next month (I’ll be there to report it first hand as it happens). One of his new editorials has just come out, in LA based fashion magazine Flaunt, shot by Ben Watts. It’s an urban/sporty three boy ed, which he shares with Mark Cox and number 29 on the models.com Top 50 Male Models list, Eddie Tucker.

UPDATE: I just spoke with Michael, he’s currently in Milan waiting for the shows to begin, he sent me through a just published editorial from Rodeo magazine (below) shot by Paul Maffi, and told me he’s also recently shot for NYLON and VMan. Now that Michael’s book is so developed with editorial from some of the world’s top magazines, if he has a successful show season next month, I’d expect to see him move into some high profile campaigns and some big money. The proof, as they say, will be in the pudding.

    Hi Kate, thanks for that, I’ve never seen or heard of Peter before.

    Bruce was at RAFW two weeks ago, I believe he’s back in NZ now, or will be soon.

    Jamie Sisley from 62 is also over in London but I haven’t seen any work from him.

    Michael is consistently working internationally.
