About Me

Greetings MM'ers, my name is Daryl Maniscalco.  I began my photography journey over 20 years ago when I was a young teenager.  I instantly fell in love with the art so I asked my parents for a camera.  With that, I began shooting landscapes via good old fashioned film & print.

When I turned 18, I decided it was time to get out on my own so I enlisted into the Air Force.  The "plan" was to do my 4 years, get some college in, save up some money, and get out so I could get back to the camera.  20 years later, here I am retired from active duty lol!

A few years ago, I realized a lot was changing.  People, society, the nation, the world...not to mention cameras, and just how fast digital photography tech was expanding.  Even though I was still in the service, I wanted to start getting acquainted with digital photography because I knew the time for retirement would be here before I knew it.  Right around the same time, the big fitness boom was in full swing, so I decided I would focus on the two together.  After applying a little of what my friends liked referring to as another "Daryl-ism", my Fitness Lens Studio and Strong Girls World concepts were born.  But, with the demands of military life, time was extremely limited.

So, I started building Strong Girls World bit by bit, slow by steady.  It took years, but today, now that I have Strong Girls World LC up and running full steam ahead, I am developing Fitness Lens Studio simultaneously so I can capture the guys as well.  The company line -

"Traditionally, fitness photography does not focus on the muscle, instead the muscle the model has compliments the shots. In recent years, people have begun to develop their bodies with more lean muscle tone, and both men and women alike have taken notice.  The look, feel, energy, and attraction of this phenomenon has been the inspiration for my work which captures the pastime of fitness photography with the added art of focusing on the muscle as well. Strong IS sexy..."

Although my focus thus far has been primarily on fitness photography, I have taken on some swimsuit, casual, and portrait work as well.  As a newfound "civilian" with nothing but time on my hands, I am also eager to expand my horizons into other photography genres, which is why my profile shows so many different ones.  I enjoy meeting new models and working hard for them to create the best art possible between us.  Now that I am a licensed photographer, I have all that much more confidence in my life's work.  Let's Shoot!
