In mid May we got to meet beautiful Florida model and current Maxim 2014 Hometown Hotties Hopeful Stephanie Clarke at a private group of photo shoots we did on Ormond Beach. Make sure to VOTE for Stephanie in the Hometown Hotties Contest here.
“I found Stephanie to be super cute and really fun to work with,” stated BikiniTeam.tv Co-Founder John Neyrot. “When I looked that the photos the guys shot of her later on the computer I was blown away, she looks amazing and is very photogenic!”
I was pretty excited when Clarke reached out to us after being referred by a mutual friend Chuck Owens. I must admit, Owens sure has the eye for talent so when he told me that Stephanie would be great to include in our Ormond shoots I did not hesitate to invite her over for the day.
“Stephanie is very much the girl next door,” stated swimwear photographer Greg Hunter. “She is cute and a total sweetie pie. I am looking forward to shooting with her again soon.”
The guys were basically fighting over her that afternoon. We shot her in a few VS Swim bikinis as you can see in these Stephanie Clarke Bikini Model photos.
“I really enjoyed shooting with Stephanie as we all did that day,” stated swimwear photographer Mike Erickson. “Enthusiastic, very pretty and open to direction. I am already looking forward to working with her again in July.”
The images from the days shoot were so nice, we suggested that she submit for the Hometown Hotties contest and once I found out she got accepted for Week 5 we had to do a quick interview with her to find out more.
Q: When did you start modeling and how were you discovered?
I started doing print work around the age of 5, but I stopped at a young age. About a year ago after doing some head shots for the spa I work at, the photographer suggested I get back into it. So we put together a portfolio and I was picked up with an agency!
Q: How excited were you when you found out you were selected for Week 5 voting in the 2014 Maxim Hometown Hotties Contest?
I was pretty excited! I entered the contest at the last minute, so I’m happy to be a part of Maxim’s Hometown Hotties 2014!
Q: Tell us about your shoot with BikiniTeam.TV photographers Greg Hunter & Mike Erickson?
Shooting with BikiniTeam.TV was a blast! The location at Ormond Beach was beautiful and I was able to get to know everyone on a professional and personal level that day. Mike and Greg both have a different style, we were able to capture a lot of great images while having a lot of fun at the same time.
Q: Where would you go on your Dream Vacation and Why?
My dream vacation would probably be to the Canary Islands. Everyone raves about how beautiful it is there, and I’ve always had a love affair with Spain and the culture there.
Q: What has been your favorite place on the planet to shoot and why?
Any beach really. I prefer to do swimwear modeling so I love being by the water!
Q: What is your favorite swimwear company or companies and why do you like their swimsuits?
My favorite swimwear companies are Lulu Fama, L*Space, and Teeny B. I love the way the suits are cut and fit so perfectly!
Q: Tell us something interesting about yourself that most people do not know (the quirkier, the better!)?
I’m a bit of a nerd. I was in orchestra most of my life and I have a history degree. I’m really outgoing, so most people don’t realize that I have some “boring” interests haha.
Q: Where can we see you next? Do you have any upcoming events, photo shoots or appearances that your fans can see you at soon?
I have a few events coming up with Swimsuit USA, I also will be in Fort Lauderdale Beach soon to work with BikiniTeam.TV again!
