Southern Methodist University senior Charlie Scheerer, who grew up on Seaspray Avenue, knows what he'll be doing in the new year, at least for a few days of it. He got the news this week from Nick Tamposi at P Model Management that he's been booked as one of the faces (and bodies, as is usually the case) for the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog. This is the second time Tamposi's agency has placed a Palm Beacher with the A&F people - Cristina Coniglio appeared in the catalog earlier this year.
Photographer Bruce Weber will be shooting Scheerer and other models in various stages of dress (and undress, if history is any indication) in Fort Lauderdale Jan. 5-12.It won't be the first time Scheerer has stood in front of a camera. When the 21-year-old was 5, his mother, Sandy Scheerer - who obviously thought he was adorable but knew he had a face that more people than just his mother could love - took him to New York, where he found work as a child model and appeared in several ads.
She doesn't expect that her son will make a career out of modeling, noting that Charlie is a finance major and has interned during the summers with Dixon Boardman's Optima Fund Management group in Manhattan, but she thinks it'll be a kick for him.
