Here's the 60-second introduction to the studio, its models and our website

Welcome behind the scenes.

The band running across the top of the screen is a timeline displaying the models as their work has been added to the website and the blog.  Moving through the blog you will find stories about the models and their photo sessions.  

There is a search box at the bottom of each screen and each featured model has a blog page or a home page with all the links you'll need to explore the model's work with the studio. 

Many of the followers of this blog are fellow photographers and it is primarily those readers that I have in mind while writing. 

The focus of our work is the male torso, and the diversity of our models reflects our extreme good fortune to be based in New York City. 

In our decade-plus run, we have worked with runway models and actors; students and professionals of all stripes; local construction workers and international fitness models.  Thanks to our Manhattan base, we have worked with many national and international models passing through the city as well as bodybuilders and personal trainers from local gyms.  

We are grateful to our models for trusting us to photograph them in this manner and we endeavor to protect and respect their private lives.  Meet them on the pages that follow.
