Diana Gallo was born and raised in Los Angeles and is the Owner and Founder of the Manhattan Model Studio in Manhattan Beach, Ca. She uses her 20 plus years experience in modeling and commercial acting to help her clients break into the business. When she was a little girl, she would dream of being on magazines and commercials and walking in fashion shows. But she didn’t know how to do it and her parents were not sure what to do either. Eventually, she started pursuing her dream of modeling without any help or guidance and put herself in potentially dangerous situations with “shady” people.
Diana has been on magazine covers, music videos, movies, commercials and so much more. Now she is dedicated to teaching and guiding others into the world of modeling and commercial acting.
Kate Romero is a Mexican American award-winning photographer based in Los Angeles. She graduated with honors from the prestigious photography department at University of CA, Riverside. She has taken photos for celebrities such as Allison Janney, Mila Kunis, Candice King, Tony Shalhoub, Reba McEntire, and many more.
Born in Kent, England and raised bouncing between England and Los Angeles, this half English and half Mexican Angeleno began her career as a photojournalist but quickly realized that being uninvited didn’t suit her sensibility—she prefers collaborating to simply capturing an image. Perhaps that is why she has become a sought after photographer among artists, musicians and entertainment industry leaders with whom she consistently works. Although she still loves shooting old school film, especially black & white, Romero enjoys the digital medium for its immediacy. She’s known for converting "un-photogenic" camera-phobes into enthusiastic models, winning them over with her beautiful images. “ I let them see themselves the way I do so it’s fun when they freak out about how amazing they look. After that, they loosen up and we just have fun.”Raquel's Story...

A true artist with a natural gift for glamour, she especially loves special occasion and wedding glitz makeup, photo/modeling shoots, and teaching the foundational importance of proper skin care.
