Indigenous Model Rhianna Tannock
Indigenous Far North Coast model Rhianna Tannock has taken out the win in a local annual modelling competition held by Desi Lou Photography.
She is the 2017 Face winner but it didn't come easy.
The 17 year old beauty sadly exited the competition in the semi final round only to come back for the Grand Final photo-shoot as one of the models had pulled out of the competition for personal reasons.
Rhianna re-entered the competition to take out the win. Votes where close on Instagram and Facebook but the judges scores added with the likes on social media meant the winner was Rhianna.
The girls faced off in a tribal themed photo-shoot, shot in the creek at the stunning Nimbin NSW Australia. Bringing them to life was photographer Desi Lou Photography who said "it was so hard picking the images of the girls to put up for public votes" "They where both stunning models and both had there strengths and weakness on the shoot, but if I had to pick one girl who stood out on the day that would be Rhianna" "She had hit after hit per frame which makes for a great model and as a photographer a dream to work with.

Big thank you to Salon 5 Sixty for all the hair and makeup on the shoots, also Daizy Nimbin for the loan of the head pieces and congratulations on getting a model feature in Nimbin Hills Magazine issue 1 out now on MagCloud.
