Welcome behind the scenes at New Manhattan Studios.  Here you will find  stories about our models and their photo sessions.

Many of the followers of this blog are fellow photographers and it is primarily those readers that I have in mind while writing.  All visitors are encouraged to take part in the discussion with comments and questions about the models or the studio.   Most of the models featured on the blog are professional models working in or passing through metropolitan New York.  If you wish to contact a specific model with a legitimate job offer, you may click here.

On the blog you'll get first glimpses of upcoming models and first peeks at new products and art from the studio.  We generally post twice a month, co-incident with introducing new models or work.  You may subscribe to the blog (as an RSS feed) and receive the updates as they are posted by clicking on the "Subscribe" button on the right side of this page and at the bottom left of the individual blog entries.
