FHM has done incredible things for me and my career. I was amazed how much good fortune came to me from all the exposure, I have stayed busy since the very first time I was published!  Now, after multiple appearances (including a cover!) I’m experiencing life in a way I never imagined. I now represent many great companies, and meet countless wonderful people! All the exposure and credibility has helped me launch my acting career – wish me luck! Thanks to Laurens and everyone in the FHM family, you will be with me forever!

Working with Laurens has opened so many doors for me. Laurens is absolutely great to work with and has gone out of his way to help me become successful. It goes without mentioning what a phenomenal photographer he is. Only after working with him do you realize what it means that he can capture "the shot" in the most difficult conditions!

"After 8 years of modeling if there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that the right pics are what keep me working. I have a book full of tear sheets but every six months I do another CAT shoot wiLaurens so that I have images that work when I’m casting. He’s an amazing photographer and creates indescribable images. But the best part is that they make me money!"

"I was at work when I met Laurens and he offered to shoot me. Normally it would have sounded like a line, but he seemed so above board I went for it and was I ever glad I did! I knew of his work but I never expected what happened next! I got internationally published and then became FHM Magazine's first ever Digital Darling! After that I moved to LA and worked on some films, and continued to work shoot with Laurens and FHM even getting to travel internationally! Thank you Laurens!"

Laurens was able to use his influence and incredible photos to get me featured in my first major national magazine. That exposure propelled my modeling career to a whole new level and has allowed me to expand into my dream of acting.  He has provided some of the best photos in my portfolio and I consistently receive fan mail asking for me to sign his images. Not only is Laurens a marvelous photographer, he has a wonderful personality, stellar character and has become a great friend.

I have been modeling for a while and have come across so many photographers. When I was shot with Laurens for FHM the first time I didn't have any expectations, but the first shot he took, I literally shook like there was an earthquake! The whole day went great and the pictures were incredible! The second time was even more amazing and literally took my breath away! I sure hope I'll be able to work with the best photographer in the world again :)
