Since 2010, we have ran Model of the Month in our sister magazine Carbon Copy, but we’ve decided to now move this to Client’s website on a weekly basis. We will shoot each model specially for the MOTW posts and interview them. Our first MOTW is Michael Morgan at D1, London, a new face who has been modelling since August 2011 and probably most recognised for the Topman Denim Project, photographed by Thomas Lohr.
