Jeff Tomsik went to an open call for models on the Cleveland radio, and the rest, they say, is history. At 19 years he appeared as the face of Hollister, the next year Abercrombie and Fitch. A favorite of Bruce Weber, who used him for numerous editorials and campaigns, Jeff’s life did a 180 degree turn in a matter of months. Almost a decade later, we revisit some of Jeff’s favorite shots, and he gives us a few behind the scenes (and hilarious) anecdotes behind the timeless images.
