How discovered: First time I was scouted in Tartu, when I was 16 years old. But at that moment, I didn’t to react on the proposal. After a year, when SAGE was just launched, Aleksei reached me again and I agreed to meet up. Aleksei and Kristina came to my home town, where later I decided to give it a shot!
Best feature: I’m crazy and artistic person. I love people. I’m always making happy everyone around me. As the song says – Don’t worry, be happy :)

Name: Alan Solonchuk

How discovered: It was a funny story, actually. On my way back home after a hard working day at my dad’s working place, I was approached by a girl (scout from SAGE) to try myself in modeling. So that I did!
Best feature: It’s a bit difficult to judge myself, but I think my best feature that makes me in some way unique, is that I’m always being kind and friendly to everyone.

    Well I’m glad another Estonian agency is doing well. Because of the lack of will effort or resources, all the Finnish male models are “stolen” by the Swedish or German agencies, doing Calvin Klein, Prada and Balenciaga. Finnish agencies are not much to begin with, during the past 15 years they’ve only managed to give the world Suvi, two years of Kirsi and the very random career of Saara. In the meanwhile we’ve had Carmen, Tiiu, Karmen, Katlin, Elisbateh, Alexandra and so many more.
