Today is the debut of a new portrait series for The Sartorialist.  I’ve wanted to add studio work to the blog for a while, and now that we’re in our new studio it’s finally the right time.


This is a series that I will shoot all over the world, and like my street work, I will focus on the intriguing people I meet on my travels.


I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed shooting it.

    I’m really enthusiastic about this series of portrait taken in a studio. From what I see with this first one, it looks very promising.

    Gorgeous. Is it wrong that I’m jealous of the Domenico? How lovely would it be to serendipitously be a sitter for this new series? A girl can dream!

    Yes, more please. I love black and white portraits. And this one in particular because between his beard, hair, and jacket, he’s salt and pepper magic. And what I wouldn’t give to have skin like his.

    I love his style and the hand tattoo <3


    PS: Beautiful man *_*

    I’m very excited for this series–and what an auspicious start! The black and white brings this dapper character into sharp relief, and I’m intrigued by his hand art/tattoo! Can’t wait to see what portrait is next!

    It’s already looking promising. I love this guy’s style, he looks so classic and refined until you see the tattoo on his hand. Hints at something a little wilder within him.

    Intriguing – the immaculate grooming and suit.. and the tattoo. Am sure a conversation with this gentleman would be quite interesting.

    Would like to see contact sheets for Joan Rivers; she loosens up, attired properly, the thought is to touch on the ethereal.

    It’s a wonderful shot. After seeing your post of Helena on the Rue de Richelieu on January 27th, however, I am reminded that we all need to watch our posture.
