This is the best place to quickly get a feel for the studio and its models.  

Welcome behind the scenes.

The band running across the top of the screen is a timeline for 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.  Each model has a blog page and that page has 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.  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 or semi-professional models working in or passing through metropolitan New York.

On the blog you'll get first glimpses of upcoming models and first peeks at new photography from the studio.  We generally post once or 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 bottom the page.
