Height: 5ft 11in

Chest: 40 in
Chico is an exceptionally talented and versatile model who has worked with photographers from all over the world. Currently he is signed to Grace Model Management in South Africa and recently spent some time out there with them. A dual national of Barbados and the UK, Chico and I started discussing the possibility of shooting while he was living in London but never settled on a theme or a shoot date. Several months later, I was out in the Caribbean, in a small cafe in St Vincent trying to get some internet and send some messages home. I checked Instagram, and one of the first posts to come up was by Chico, with a location also in St Vincent! Prior to this I was not aware that St Vincent & The Grenadines was home for Chico. I was leaving that day, but returning two weeks later, so we arranged to shoot – and who better to find a location than a local?
The country really is a beautiful one, with stunning beaches and lush green forests, and Chico really excelled with his choice of locations which included a secluded rocky beach and an old unused factory with several old abandoned vehicles outside. A good friend of Chico’s was keen to promote his fashion brand Tivoli & Fache and supplied some of the clothing for the shoot. As expected, Chico was fantastic to work with, and you can see more of our work together below, or on his agency page!
