Punctual | Professional | Not here to hook up | Not a flake

Located in NYC. A photographer, director, and producer, focused on perfecting the art of telling stories, whether it be through still photographs or video.

I’m always looking to push the envelope, with new, original, and unique ideas.

Sometimes, we'll have an idea we want to create, and will seek-out a model that fits the shot. Other times, we like creating ideas the model brings to the table. All of the time, it’s  collaboration between the model and the photographer.


- If you’re interested in modeling, please e-mail here: [email protected]

- When contacting us about a possible shoot, please indicate your rates for all the types of shooting you do, as well as any limitations.

- Professional, and very easy to work with. Just read some of the model testimonials on this page.

- Yes, we own our own equipment and maintain a professional studio in Chelsea (Manhattan).

- Work mostly as TFP. On the rare occasion that we pay models, the rate is usually aligned with the going rate here in NYC for that type of modeling. We appreciate and understand that models may be accustomed to higher rates based on their experience, the magazines they've been in, the amount of followers they have on social platforms, and the quality of modeling they do. Though experience and quality are certainly important, Exphoria is an artistic endeavor.

- We typically respond to requests within 24 hours.

- We very rarely book for minimum time periods - especially if we’ve not worked with the model before. That being said, my shoots aren’t usually any less then 2 hours.

- Models need to be at least 18 years old. Period. NO EXCEPTIONS.

- We're big on communication, especially via e-mail. We prefer that you contact us through regular e-mail: [email protected] (though feel free to use MM's messaging system)

- If we contact you for a shoot, and for some reason you’re not interested in working with us, please be kind enough to send a message letting us know.

- If we’re booked for a shoot, we expect that you will show up on time, and if you’re running late, to call and let us know.

- We NEVER ask models to pose beyond what was previously agreed to.

- We work fast, often doing several looks per shoot

For Paid Shoots ...

- We pay cash, at the end of the shoot. We do not pay in advance, and will not use PayPal or other electronic payment services.


It's kind of unfortunate to have to say this, but based on some odd replies we've received, It seems necessary...

YES, we shot a lot of nudes.
YES, we shoot a lot of non-nude work too, including glamor and fashion
NO, we do not ask non-nude models to pose nude. We respect model's limitations - always have, always will.

- The clock starts ticking once we start taking pictures.

Thanks for your interest!

"Doing a nude photo shoot for the first time, I can honestly say that Exphoria made me feel comfortable and confident. He is a professional, respectful, and down to earth photographer. For any models who have never done a nude photo shoot, and want to do one, I highly recommended Exphoria. It was an honor to work with him I have no problem working with him again." Stefania

"I am simply speechless... You have been such a very talented photographer to work with, but not only that, a phenomenal true professional at that. Thank you for all of your reliability and professionalism... it was a true pleasure shooting with you. Cannot wait to work with you again... See you soon!!! - Aurie"

"I felt very comfortable shooting with Exphoria- he remained professional and positive throughout the whole shoot. He knew exactly what he was looking for- as a model I feel that is when shoots flow smoothly and the best results come. I'm reviewing the pictures now (which were sent very quickly), and I'm happy with the results! Wonderful photographer all around. Thanks."


"Any nude model knows that half of the shoot's success depends on being made to feel comfortable. I can say that Exphoria was a total professional, which freed me up to pose without having to feel self conscious or uneasy. I also appreciated his dedication to lighting perfection: he had an exceptionally wonderful eye for it."
Nik Black


"I did a shoot with Exphoria and the experience was AWESOME!! He was extremely professional, quite the perfectionist with lighting and the set, but very easy to work with. The fact that he was receptive to my ideas made me feel like we were both two creative elements working together to actualize a vision of what we thought the shoot should be, as opposed to just a model and a photographer. I cannot wait for another opportunity to work with him again."


"I had so much fun at my shoot. They made me feel comfortable and at home.
Everyone was very professional. I would love to have the opportunity to
shoot with them again!!!  Thumbs WAY up!!!"


“I just wanted to take the time out to say thank you for making the experience a pleasant and comfortable one. I had a great time and met some wonderful people along the way. Much success on your project and look forward to working with you in the future if ever the opportunity arises.”


“From beginning to end, both as individuals and an organization, Exphoria is a complete pleasure to work with. In an industry were shooting/filming nudity can become a thoughtless and often careless "procedure," Exphoria remained professional, creative, and sensitive to the models' needs throughout the shoot. Not only did I enjoy all interactions with Exphoria’s crew and staff, but I very much look forward to collaborating with them again!"

This was a fun shoot for me because the people were very laid back and professional. It wasn't a stressful environment and they made me feel very comfortable. I'd definitely work with them again!
