Photo shoot days are always busy at The It Factor Productions and our next photo shoot will be no exception. On Saturday, January 16, 2016, The It Factor Productions will welcome special guest, Phil Sullivan of America’s Next Top Model to the office. Phil Sullivan will be here at 3 pm to conduct a workshop for The It Factor Productions talent.
Phil got started in modeling after a designer whom he met on a train took some pictures of him and uploaded them onto a modeling site. Phil did not have any expectations and in the meantime was able to build his portfolio while working as an interior designer. The photos eventually led to representation (with Maggie Inc.) and he began taking on some small modeling jobs in Boston.
Phil realized that in order to become a successful model he needed to change where he was living. He moved to New York where unfortunately all of his possessions were stolen due to a scam on Craigslist. He needed work in order to make a living so he began modeling in Manhattan. After being homeless for a brief amount of time, Phil resided in a small apartment and continued to embark on his modeling career.
Phil saw that one of his friends on Facebook had posted information about an audition for America’s Next Top Model. Phil took this as opportunity and sat through the grueling 15-hour audition. Sitting through the audition time was well worth it as Phil was chosen as one of the 16 models to compete. Phil was a valiant competitor on the show and made it into the “Top 8” before being eliminated. However despite not him winning the show, Phil is very successful professional model.
Phil has graced the runways of New York Fashion Week for designers such as Lucio Castro and Tina Turk. His distinctive looks (A.K.A. his beard) can be seen everywhere from Milan, London, Paris and more.
Phil Sullivan is a great mentor for our talent at The It Factor Productions. He has attended multiple VIP Talent Connect Events and provides great advice about getting started in the business.
Everyone at The It Factor Productions is excited to welcome Phil to our office.
