Rockin’ with Jerry
by Cara Cherry
I hope you had a chance to read my last post about using models to create the perfect photo shoot. The pictures for our 2011 catalog will feature nine new models. With a variety of corporate, sports and lifestyle garments to choose from we narrowed it down to five females and four males. The youngest was 10 and the oldest in his thirties.
Our products are pretty unique in that they each can serve a different market. You’ll notice our standard sports shots, but we also try to incorporate various corporate images as well as lifestyle pictures. This year we ended up with some really amazing designs that lent themselves to more of an urban and hip style. During the selection process, we came across Jerry Reid.
In addition to being a great model, Jerry is an extremely talented singer and songwriter. He sent me his newest single called You’re Sorry. It has a great urban pop beat with a rock ‘n’ roll vibe. He recorded it in Stockholm just a few weeks before our shoot. He is planning on going back to finish up several recordings and plans on releasing his album in 2011.
At just 22, Jerry has opened alongside Ashlee Simpson, Kelly Clarkson, New Kids on the Block, and several others. He also spent four years on the Hulk Hogan VH1 series, Hogan Knows Best. Jerry has also landed roles in a range of feature film and television projects such as the CW network series The Beautiful Life and feature film Going the Distance with Drew Barrymore.
During the photo shoot, Jerry modeled a variety of lifestyle type garments featuring Custom Cut Designs in a variety of heat transfer materials. Keep an eye out for Jerry, he is truly a star in the making!
