The Importance of Detail: The Photography of Alex Corso


From the many smiles, Iggy certainly seemed to enjoy his time working with Wes and Alex. Iggy is one of those models who looks equally hot with, or without clothes and loved the many looks captured.

'Iggy already had a good-looking body when he shot with us, but has spent a great deal of time in the gym since first shoot. He is now apparently so impressive he’s ready to fly back to NY for another photo session. Find more HERE:'


Some of my favorite shots from Alex are of Norm. In addition to the Made in New Jersey shots I posted in the piece above, I love the shots Alex captured below.

'Norm works out at Alex’s neighborhood gym in New Jersey. They are casual friends and, knowing that Alex was a model, last year Norm approached him about doing a photo session to document the progress he was making in the gym. When Alex told me of the great results the kid was getting from his workouts, I agreed to do a TFP session for/with him.'

'I was blown away by the 18-year-old’s impressive physique. Indeed, not only is his build the best I’ve seen on anyone that young, he has one of the best-defined bodies of anyone I’ve shot. It was a pleasure working with him.'


Alex's 'little' brother Ricardo first stepped into the studio with his brothers support back in 2014. (Family Business) Ricardo recently headed back to New Manhattan Studios, this time shot by both Wes, and his older brother Alex.

'The November session with Ricardo was the model’s first in almost a year and had been pushed back and pushed back at Ricardo’s insistence as he continued to work out in the gym. . .working on his back, legs and arms. It paid off. the 23-year-old has never looked better. And some of the best shots from the session were taken by Alex of his kid brother! I hope to have Ricardo’s new gallery up in early 2016. One of the images made the 2016 calendar.'

'Now that I have the opportunity to be the person who shoots, it’s amazing! Suddenly I understand the importance of details (be they big or small). But it doesn’t stop there either, I have to think about what I’m trying to convey with a picture... its meaning for lack of a better word. I have a great time shooting whenever the opportunity is given to me. I try to be like a sponge, to learn as much as I can so that I will have better results in the future.'
