  • Build Your Brand

    by Ellenboughn | 25th of November, 2008

    by Ellenboughn | 21st of May, 2008

  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank look that... More

    The second leg of the EHF Cup Final followed a scenario similar to the first leg. Just like a week ago in Ludwigsburg, Rostov somewhat struggled for a large part of the match, yet ultimately claimed a 25:21 victory and crowned their European season with a trophy.   ... More
