In the photography industry, there has been an apparent lack of representation for Masculine Lesbians of color. Stud Model Project founder Teresa Morcho took this notice and decided to use her skills as a serial entrepreneur and expand her business ventures for the LGBTQIA community. With a focus on a particular group whose style, swag, and handsome demeanor capture a room, the name STUD MODEL PROJECT appeared.
In an effort to highlight this masculine identity in a broader spectrum, Teresa created the Stud Model Project. She began the journey with a published coffee table book of over 100 pages of beautifully handsome womxn. These collections of books inspired Teresa to take her passion even further and build a platform dedicated to these incredible features. As an agency and a movement, the Stud Model Project has a unique opportunity and responsibility to be used as a platform in fashion to showcase the community and give a face to them. With value and care, Teresa intends to expand this celebratory venture and take it worldwide.
