Elmer Olsen Model Bootcamp: Amanda Laine and Taryn Davidson Proffer Their Wisdom
Renowned Toronto-based agent Elmer Olsen -- whose discovery/management roster boasts Daria Werbowy, Alana Zimmer, Taryn Davidson, and Amanda Laine -- gathered the preeminent international agencies (think DNA, IMG, Supreme, Trump, Women) for his second annual Model Bootcamp.

Thirty of Elmer's budding mannequins gathered at the Metropolitan Hotel for beauty and fitness seminars followed by indispensable words of wisdom from seasoned soon-to-be-supers Amanda and Taryn.
This year's "one to watch" was Elise, a redheaded stunner whose singular look deftly swings from prepossessing pixie to fierce phenom. Considering that Elmer's 2007 bootcamp star Tara Gillwent on to walk for the likes of Celine, Givenchy, Gianfranco Ferré, Hermès, and Ralph Lauren, expect major bookings from Elise come next month's fashion weeks.
