Last year, photographers Philip Kirkman and Shannon McLaughlin had such great success with their NYC Taxi Drivers Beefcake Calendar that they decided to create another one for 2015. The hilarious pin-up calendar is created in the same vein as the annual NYPD and FDNY charity calendars, with a portion of the proceeds supporting NYC-based University Settlement.
For this year’s project, Kirkman and McLaughlin hit the streets of NYC to find taxi cab drivers willing to pose for some pretty creative shots www.onlinerouletteboard.com. The images feature new drivers, repeat drivers from last year, and even the very first husband and wife driving team.
The photographers explain, “The drivers are shown in a playful mix of work and leisure, including a playdate with nine adorable puppies from Animal Haven shelter in Manhattan and some sensuous cookie consumption at New York’s favorite bakery, Levain.”
You can purchase your very own copy of the 2015 calendar on the NYC Taxi Drivers Calendar website.
