Meet our Energetiks Model Search Finalists!

Meet our finalists
Group Shot

Last week we had six excited Model Search Finalists make their way by plane and car to the Energetiks Melbourne Headquartes for their photoshoots!

The fun began at 9:30 am with the girls arriving to get their hair and make-up done, meeting the team, and answering some questions so we could get to know them all a bit better! Then it was into the studio for a one-on-one shoot with our photographers. There was lots of playful posing, laughs and jokes being made, especially when the wind machine was misbehaving! ;)

All six of our finalists were super lovely and shone in front of the camera, check out what Madeleine, Korey, Sheridan, Montana, Layla and Ellie had to say when they were here:
