New Face of The Day: David M Thomas

David M Thomas has only been in New York for a short time, but he is quickly making a name for himself in the business. David recently signed with Adam NYC and has been working with some of the top photographers in the business. I am sure you will agree there is something pretty special about David. His amazing face, body, hair and those beautiful blue eyes will be showcased in campaigns before too long. Check out more of David at Adam NYC HERE: Also check out the post below of some of David's early work by photographer Cassidy Knight.

I have posted about my admiration of the work of Kristopher Kelly before, but his shots of David are really breathtaking. Kristopher has photographed some of the biggest models in the business and I am sure with Kristopher's shots, David will be on that list soon. Check out Kristopher's site HERE: and his Blog HERE:

David M Thomas by Cassidy Knight

It must be both thrilling and sad to be the first. First in this case means being the first person behind the lens to capture the beauty and the essence of an up and coming model. David Thomas is currently in New York making his way in the modeling business. Back in Grand Rapids, MI, photographer Cassidy Knight (above), is completing school at Grand Valley State University.

Cassidy, who is responsible for all the shots of David featured here is not only a photographer but a Filmmaker, Writer, and and without a doubt an Artist. Cassidy and David worked together in Michigan to create the amazing shots you see here. Much of David's portfolio is Cassidy's work, work that helped launch his career.

I strongly encourage you all to check out Cassidy's site at deviantART. I felt an connection with Cassidy, not just because I loved his photos, but even more so I enjoyed his writings. deviantART has a journal attached, and Cassidy has a way of drawing you in with his writing the way a great storyteller can. Just like a great novel, I continued to read his journal to the end not wanting it to end. Such insight from someone so young. It is interesting to me, but not surprising, that like my profile of Brian Motley last week, a post which started out about a model ended up being about the man behind the lens. Be sure to check out Cassidy's work at deviantART found HERE:

Model Of The Day: Matthew Lewis

Above and Below: Matthew by Sean Chang.

Sometimes you see a face and just have to learn more about a guy! The face in question is that of NY Model Matthew Lewis. I first saw Matthew in some publicity photos for a production of Ziegfeld's Folly (see below). Matthew is not just a model, but an actor and singer. I was struck by the beauty of Matthew's face with his beautiful blue eyes and amazing lips. Matthew has a great body as well which is understandable given his passion for fitness. Matthew has created an impressive portfolio working with some of the best photographers in the business.

Height: 5' 10"
