Ringing in a New Decade with Trevor

December 31, 2019  •  Leave a Comment



As is our tradition, in featuring Trevor as the first post of the year we are looking both forward and back. We honor one of the most striking models to come before our camera in 2019 and celebrate the end of the year by publishing two portfolios of our work with this young man from Ohio.

The studio has been in operation for nearly a decade and Trevor's galleries embody, we hope, not just the culmination of 9 years of honing our craft but also a beacon of where we are heading.  It's fitting that our second session with him this summer was a bright, high-key session full of light and optimism.  Let's start our new decade there. 

The model had never been to New York before his first trip in late summer.  It was a session shared with our good friend and West Coast shooting partner, Keith Ingram [@keithingramfotos_2.0].   

There were a lot of cameras trained on Mr. Jacobs (A/K/A “TJ”) over the course of his three days in New York. In addition to Keith's and my cameras, two of the studio's regular assistants, Timothy Edwards and Alex Bustamante, also manned the shutters.

We started with our work with Trevor around some of the iconic locations and landmarks of lower Manhattan.  I particularly enjoy wandering the canyons of Wall Street and the Financial District on a sunny day.  Turn any corner and you can encounter unexpected pools of light, reflected down from towering glass skyscrapers into the dark streets.  It is some of the city's more dramatic natural lighting. 

We worked with Trevor a second day, capturing him in and around the studio hotel he called home for 3 days.  He apparently found it all agreeable; he ventured back to the city barely 10 days later when he returned on a business trip.  Fortunately, he was able to schedule ample time on his calendar to fit in a session with us in our Flatiron District studio.  

The two sessions couldn't have been more different and we have presented them in separate galleries.  We are grateful to have had the opportunity to expand our portfolio of work with this striking model so quickly and hope to add more.

We end 2019 with the release of Trevor blanc, a 32-page photo essay with white at its core.  Featuring work in front of bright windows and yards of white paper, there is little to distract the viewer from Trevor's sinewy torso and beautifully-honed body. 







Trevor blanc is available as a print magazine and as an instantly-downloadable PDFIn early 2020 we will be releasing work from the downtown sessions, Trevor/Wall Street.

Trevor isn't just appearing as 2020's cover boy at New Manhattan Studios, he is also being featured as the lead entry for 2020 at Favorite Hunks.  Be sure to check out Tye Brigg's feature on Trevor at Favorite Hunks.
