Pearl of Peace for Harpers Baazar

Town & Country Magazine were in touch with PetLondon Models looking for a very special equine model to star in a shoot to celebrate the launch of the new Bond movie. The photoshoot was to held at Althorp House  Althorp is a Grade I listed stately home, estate and small civil parish in Daventry District, Northamptonshire, England of about 13,000 acres.

After proposing and reviewing several options a decision was made to use a stunning three year old stallion-Pearl of Peace.

Pearl of Peace is a very rate double colt with a golden coat. He is one of the only to be bred in England. His gorgeous coat colour is known as isabelo and it literally shines like gold.  Pearl of Peace is a large and stunning horse and a fantastic temperament as well. He is bred to be a Grand Prix Dressage horse and at this young age is already showing aptitude. His grandfather is the number one dressage stallion in America and his half brother won a silver medal at the Athens Olympics.

After travelling up to Althorp House the evening before the big day, Pearl of Peace got settled in for an early start on the grands and met his co-model, Naomie Harris. The two got on very well and made a perfect pair to create some dazzling images.

Naomie Harris stars as Miss Moneypenny in the new Bond film, she portrays a unique new portrayal of an iconic Bond character.

The weather could not have been more perfect for the day of the shoot and sun was gleaming off of Pearl of Peace’s coat. Naomie shimmered too in a selection of ball gowns. Here is one of the delightful final images that appeared in Town & Country mAGAZINE.

The client was thrilled with the end result and commented “Everything was perfect, Pearl of Peace was such a gorgeous colour in the sun, the weather was amazing“.

Loki for Aldi Christmas Campagin

PetLondon Models are often fortunate to land Christmas Campaigns during the busy winter months. Whether it could be promoting a pet product or simply adding some extra X-Factor to any type of product or service, animals are in hot demand around the holiday season.

We have to keep these jobs strictly under wraps until after Christmas because all the images and concepts are strictly top secret until the campaign launches. Now that Christmas is well out the way we would like to share with you one of our favourites from 2015. It was little Loki’s shoot for Aldi.

Loki is and adorable Cavapoo from London. She is Super-active and friendly with everyone, people and animals alike. Loki is not yet a year old but she has an impressive skill set that includes; sit, stand, high five, paw, rollover, stay and waits.
This little lady has a loving personality and is super loyal to her handler Heidi.

We first met Heidi and Loki when they signed with the agency and they came in to do a casting and some test shots. Loki was impecably behaved and we all agreed she was a professional in front of the camera.

Loki pulled off the classic over the shoulder pose right away during her first shoot. She also mastered some more tricky poses with the help of a puppy prop.

The casting call came in to PetLondon Models for a small dog to model Aldi’s Christmas range that included a matching jumper for dog and owner. After narrowing down their selection from a range of options, Loki was  the dog that was chosen for this assignment. We knew she could pull it off with no problems.

Loki was a pro at showing off the lovely reindeer jumper and she interacted with the human model on set to create some lovely festive poses. Everyone on set agreed that she was a real star and their was some glowing feedback on her after the shoot.

“I just wanted to give you feedback about Loki and her owner. Our client has said they were both AMAZING. Loki was so adorable, and so well behaved, and just fantastic really. The owner Heidi was also really helpful, and if it wasn’t for her, who knows how the shoot would have gone, but overall, they were simply thrilled with the both of them” Booking Agency Quote

Cats on the Catwalk for Stella McCartney

PetLondon Models took part in an exciting campaign for fashion designer Stella McCartney. We were contacted and briefed that they were looking for a selection of different cats to model in a photoshoot at Sunbeam Studios in London. We got to work right away as there was not much time to spare and put together a range of different cats and kittens for them to review.

After some difficult selections, the lucky chosen felines were from left to right: Hechi, Tobias, Sammi, Adaline and Perla,

Excited to have landed this assignment, they all headed over to the studio where PetLondon handler Adam was on hand to make the introductions. A few were not sure of each other initially but warmed up to their new friends as the day went on.

Each cat took turns on set to model with top human models including Lineisy Montero. The shoot was for the Stella McCartney’s Autumn Collection Campaign. Some of the collection featured actual cats within the prints and designs, so it was a perfect fit!

Perla showing off one of the looks

Persian Model Perla has been modelling from a young age. She was quite a sensation on set with her striking features and calm demeanour. Her markings are really unique and give her such character. Whether it was hanging out on a giant cushion, being carried under the arm or trying an action shot, Perla was ready to provide whatever was needed.

PetLondon were particularly happy to be working with Stella since she has a great passion for animal welfare and all of her brands collections are always animal-friendly. Stella McCartney doesn’t use leather, feathers or fur in any of its designs or products. This commitment is admirable and something that very few high end brands follow such a chosen path. PetLondon’s ethos is all about animal welfare as a priority so this synergy created a great connection.

All the models really enjoyed the shoot. They took it in turns to model different looks from the collection with different models. It was a long day though and at one point Perla was so relaxed she fell asleep in one of the designer handbags.

At first we noticed she was very comfortable and relaxed inside the handbag

Next thing we knew, she was fast a sleep. Well, you know what they say, a girl has to get her beauty sleep

All of the PetLondon Models worked hard and created some fabulous images for the campaign.

Pets Alone

Three of our talented models recently took part in creating a viral video for Frontline. The brief was to recreate a scene from Home Alone but with a dog as the one left at home alone and a couple of “cat” burglars trying to break in over Christmas.

The casting process was tough and several animals were considered for the positions. In the end the lucky dog selected was Lottie, a crossbreed from Essex who has an impressive list of special skills.

The filming took place over a day and Lottie (aka “Kevin”) had to do some special practise rehearsals at home to get used to the actions required.

We were very excited to see the final video as the script sounded like a really fun storyboard and we are delighted to be able to share with you the results on here
