SOMETIMES WHEN YOU LOOK AT SOMEONE YOU CAN ALMOST GUESS WHAT HIS ORIGIN IS. IT IS STRANGE REALLY, BUT PROBABLY HAS TO DO WITH GENES THAT GO WAY BACK IN HISTORY. ANALYZING THIS YOU CAN IDENTIFY CERTAIN FEATURES THAT ARE MORE COMMON IN SOME REGIONS THAN IN OTHERS. ANALYZING THIS MAKES YOU OFTEN SAY, OH HE IS DUTCH, OR OH, HE IS NORDIC, OR OH, HE IS ITALIAN. IN THE CASE OF RONNIE REG WAITE YOU PROBABLY WOULD SAY, OH HE IS BRITISH.
Hearing Ronnie Reg Waite speak it already gives it away. Ronnie is British. But we came to that conclusion before we could hear him already. There is something in his look. Could it be his eyes, always a bit half closed, giving him that sleepy, dreamy look. Could it be his mouth, seductive and inviting with full lips, or could it be his nose, prominent and masculine, giving him a boyish yet manly look. I think it is the combination of all these facial features, mixed with his cropped hair and goatee that give Ronnie such an European look. And not just European, I even dare to say British.
Ronnie Reg Waite was born in a town just outside of Liverpool and that confirms our first guess. You only have to look at early pictures of The Beatles to see the resemblance we were referring to before. Only 26 years old, Ronnie has left his hometown a long time ago and has been spotted in cities all over the world. London, Paris, Sydney, San Francisco. A force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry, Ronnie Reg Waite is not the kind of guy to sit still for a long time. "I am a person who likes to do and try a lot in life. I am always happy because life is way too short to be hung up over thing's."
But not matter where Ronnie’s travels bring him, his heart still belongs to his home. "I am always meeting new people but my friends and family are where my heart is." And so, after having spent a year in San Francisco, meeting people and working different jobs and assignments, Ronnie Reg wait will return to England to go back to University. A loss for the rest of the world? Not necessarily. Because Ronnie has set his min on a career in the television business, and with the camera experience he already has, we wouldn’t be surprised if we will hear and see more of Ronnie Reg Waite in the near future.
Joe Mazza was born and raised in Los Angeles but has long since changed his hometown for San Francisco. His natural facination for the human condition – communication through both looks and body language – stands at the origin of his successful career as photographer. Both in portraits and fashion as in artistic art. Whatever the assignment, and who ever he has in front of his camera, Joe always searches for intimacy. To go beyond the image of his subject and search for the models deeper self. And so it is important that he has an instant good feeling and relationship with the models he shoots: "I was doing a photo shoot a few months back and Ronnie was one of the models. If you spend two minutes with him you realize he's a force of nature, one of the sweetest and most genuine guys you'll ever meet. He's totally invested in making sure the images turn out well and gives 110% to the shoot, all the while making you laugh and forgetting it was work. As a photographer, it's always a nice treat to meet a model that you have such great chemistry with and an even nicer to treat to be able to call him a friend."
Joe Mazza plans to visit London in the not too far future. Ronnie Reg Waite is probably not the reason why Joe travels to the UK, but for sure he is on Joe’s agenda for another shoot. There is simply something irresistible about Ronnie. Let’s just face it, British guys are sexy. Maybe it’s their pale skin. Maybe it’s the look in their eyes. IN fact, British guys are like British tea. Strong with a touch of sweetness and a cloud of milk. Fancy a cuppa? –BM-
