agency approved


About a week ago, my manager called me and said, "Cory, I have good news for you!"

Good news is always amazing to hear. I was on a drive up to LA in traffic, so it was especially amazing on this day! He said to me, "We sent your book over to Heffner Management in Seattle and they want to sign you! ... TODAY!" YES!!!!

Guys, things are falling into place still. A "yes" is encouraging. How sweet it is to be wanted, believed in and accepted into the industry the way that I have been the last few weeks. 

Heffner Management is one of the top agencies in the Pacific Northwest. I had met with them back when I first signed with White Cross Management back in 2013, but the timing just wasn't right for everyone. I am so excited to begin this journey with the Heffner family! I will be flying up to Seattle this Friday to go and meet my team and figure out a good game plan for my future with them! 

The grind continues. CMT.

There is a difference between the feeling of having support and the feeling of being believed in. From the moment I met photographer, Sarah Mireya (website here), I felt the latter. With her home base in Riverside, CA, Sarah is of the top trusted agency approved photographers and has shot many of the up and coming talent in the modeling industry. I was recommended to her by my management, and it was nothing less than an honor to work together with Sarah to bring to life some new, fun, fresh, and edgy photos from our time together.

When you shoot with Sarah, she has a few goals: make the talent feel as comfortable as possible & make it seem like a 2 hour shoot took place in 5 different places and took all day. She successfully accomplished both through the images you see here. It was fun witnessing her creative process come alive when she held her camera to her eye. She saw something in me and the images we were creating together that is unique and motivating. Half way through our time together she simply stated, "You can't turn back now, Cory, we are officially friends." In that moment, I felt welcomed, befriended and filled with ease. On this day, being in front of the camera, was less of a performance and more of a live piece of art. 

Thank you Sarah Mireya for your friendship, creativity and belief in my future. These images truly show the beauty in the art you create with new faces and I am excited to see what the future holds for both of our careers!
