Congratulations on the exclusive deal!

Found on Facebook: schoolboy storms New York

A year ago Jack Vanderhart was an ordinary 16-year-old Cronulla school boy listing surfing and football as favourite pastimes on his Facebook profile.

Little did he know that same Facebook profile would change his life after a local talent scount stumbled across the photo he had posted there. Now instead of hitting the Sydney surf, Jack is strutting down a catwalk for Calvin Klein at New York Fashion week.

Always on the lookout for new faces, scouts often stake out popular haunts for young people like shopping malls and music festivals, said David Conway, a booking agent for model agency eMg.

Although Facebook is not a place his agency normally seeks out modelling talent, one of eMg's talent scounts happened upon Jack's profile picture when he was suggested as a 'friend' on the social networking site.

"His profile was open and when he clicked into his other pictures he was taken aback by how strong his face was, with the scar under eye. But he was also concerned by how young he was. We sent him an email and asked for his parents to get in touch. Obviously that included a link to our website which the parents saw, so they brought him in, and he blew us away," said Conway

“I thought it was a friend winding me up but when I looked at the website I knew it wasn't a joke so Mum agreed to take me in,” said Jack.

“I was a bit shocked at first and didn't really know what to do or say but thought it was pretty cool . . . I remember being at the agency and seeing [model] Tallulah's pictures on the wall, and I recognised her from RUSSH,” he said.

Since his first meeting with eMg late last year Jack has appeared in fashion shoots for GQ, Russh and the Christmas edition of Vogue Australia. Conway said that after seeing his work, Calvin Klein decided to fly Jack to New York to see if he was the right fit to model their new clothing collection during New York's twice yearly fashion extravaganza.

Being handpicked by Calvin Klein for New York Fashion week is a huge career break, he said.

“Calvin Klein is the show to be seen in and every season they showcase exciting new faces they feel are going to be the stars of tomorrow. They paid for his flight from Sydney to New York and they booked him on the spot.”

Conway would not disclose the fee Jack had received for appearing in the Calvin Klein show in New York, but said Jack could potentially "earn tens of thousands of dollars for a single big advertising campaign once he has built up his book". But Jack will have to make do with an allowance from his parents for a little longer with most of his earnings being placed into a trust fund for his later use.

Model agency eMg already has a number of successful Australian models on its books - like Tullulah Morton and Luke Cook - who have broken into the international modelling scene - and Conway said it required more than good looks to make it overseas.

“It was only after meeting him in person that we realised just how special Jack was . . .Jack has incredibly strong blue eyes and black hair, the combination stood out far from the rest. His look is classic Hollywood, and his scar adds a unique twist,” said Conway.

“You also have to be likeable, and clients have to like you as a person because on shoots they spend a lot of time together. You could have the most amazing face in the world but if your personality is flat you won't reach the big time.”

Photographer Carlotta Moye, who worked with Jack on the Vogue Christmas shoot said casting for a huge 14 page special meant finding the most incredible faces in town. She knew that from the minute she met Jack she wanted to work with him.

“Not only is he obviously tall and beautiful in a very masculine way, he also has an underlying energy that actually comes through in pictures. It's a calm confidence way beyond his years. Even though I really needed someone older for the roll Jack quickly became my star for the day. I couldn't get enough of shooting him and wanted to constantly come in close on his face . . . those blue eyes that pull you in to the picture.

“It's a real treat when you get the right face. It's like discovering gold."

"His look is very much what international designers are going for this season and I have no doubts that he will be extremely well received internationally," said Wayne Gross, fashion director of GQ Australia.

Being catapulted into the international modelling spotlight hasn't fazed the 189cm schoolboy, who loves Tim Tams, fits his modelling career around school work and jokes about skipping out of class to go to castings.

"It's weird going to castings, but you get used to it . . . also random people add me on Facebook which I think is a bit crazy," he said.

Jack may be enjoying his rapid rise to the top but he reveals that modelling was never a part of the life plan.

“I always lived near the beach and I love surfing. I never even knew about the fashion world before all this, and it's massively different to hanging out at Cronulla beach.

"I was more interested in surfing with my friends but when I did my first shoot for GQ I had so much fun and couldn't wait to do it again. Modelling seems like a top thing right now . . . travelling the world and getting paid for it.”
