When you encounter models on a semi-regular basis as I do, it becomes quite apparent who is ‘good’ infront of a camera, and who isn’t. Don’t get me wrong, all models are pretty fricken stunning to start off with – they’ll all look better than your average person in every photo, but there’s some girls (and guys) that just can turn it on with such ease. It’s these models that make shooting fun. The ones with lack of inhibition, who move naturally and at an even pace, and have a million poses up their sleeves.
Which brings us to Merethe (Tina) Hopland. She looks to be one of these models. The 20 year old new-face Norwegian was shot by New York based photographer, Billy Kidd, this month. Some of the results are above. Isn’t her face amazing?! The boyish haircut is a win in my opinion. If you need further proof that the girl is going to go places (which you shouldn’t, but look anyway), Kidd also shot a video to accompany the portraits – it’s mesmerising. Check it out here.
