Optimum: Philip Fusco by Hans Fahrmeyer

'I don’t think of myself as famous but when I do think of what I have accomplished I like to thank god and all of my fans for supporting me.'

That face, not to mention that body, and those fans have made New York model Philip Fusco one of the most popular and successful male models on the web. It would be hard to find a website or blog devoted to the male form that hasn't a large section of their site devoted to images of Philip.

Philip Fusco has tapped into what his fans enjoy and has worked hard to connect and welcome those who admire and respect his work. There are so many male models who are uncomfortable, even angry at the attention they get. Fusco knows that in modeling, especially the world of modeling, fans are crucial to sustaining success and enjoys and is inclusive of the admirers he attracts.

Fusco passion for fitness began early and he began working out at the age of 14. By 17, he was ready to enter the modeling industry and before too long was signed with Empire Model Management. Fusco's great looks, and New York charm, have not only made him a favorite with fans, but of photographers as well. Some of his campaigns have included Topgun Leather, Exercise For Men, Falocco Activewear and Gregg Homme. Currently, Fusco divides his focus between modeling and personal training.

Philip and Hans created a great partnership and collaborated to create some of Phil's most popular images. Thanks to Hans to for digging threw his archives to find some of my favorite images, and a few new edits for this week's Sunday With Hans.
