NYC Taxi Drivers Pose for Second ‘Sexy’ Calendar to Raise Money for Charity

2 Comments

When you think ‘sexy calendar photos,’ the first group of potential models that come to mind probably aren’t New York City taxi drivers. And yet, they’re officially selling their second ‘sexy’ calendar for charity.

We shared the first with you when it took the Internet by storm last year, and this year’s might be even better.

Once again shot by creative director Philip Kirkman and his fiancée, photographer Shannon McLaughlin, the duo is building on the success of the first iteration that raised a whopping $40,000 for University Settlement — a social service institution that is America’s oldest settlement house.

If you saw last year’s calendar, you’ll notice some returns. Drivers Darek, Dan & Jose join 10 new drivers including driver husband and wife duo Giovanny & Janie. Packed full of cliché poses, overly-intense looks and some silly situations, the photos scream whimsical.

Check out some sample shots from the 2015 calendar that Phillip and Shannon were kind enough to send our way:

Just like last year, the photos are there for a cause, and not just for fun. Each 2015 calendar will run you $15 and the proceeds will yet again go straight to University Settlement.

To see more, purchase a calendar, or find out more about Philip and Shannon’s work, head over to the NYC Taxi Calendar website or follow the project on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram.
