Having worked with physique photographer Frederick Kovert, Miser founded the Athletic Model Guild in 1945 as an association to improve the treatment of models so that they wouldn't be ripped off. He began doing his own photography shortly afterwards selling pictures in Strength and Health and in 1950 publishing his own Physique Pictorial which initially used posing straps. He lost the first prosecution against him but it was overturned when the judge decided that bare buttocks were not obscene.
Had done some films for theaters but got burnt enough by it that Inside AMG was his last attempt at that.
He had regular Saturday night screenings that he charged for. Some guests would come to pick up models. His Physique Pictorial magazine/catalog rated each model on their 'personality' but in actuality it was also on sexual preference and willingness. It was because of this that Mizer was accused of running a prostitution business and he spent a brief amount of time in prison for a dubious conviction. After that, the ratings were abandoned.
Mizer did preen his models, sometimes shaving their chest and he did have to trim back their pubic bush to keep in within the confines of a posing strap. See photographs of Robin Roberts, aka Robert Robins for evidence of the latter.
In 1981 Mizer tells of a vengeful "queen" who filed numerous complaints about Mizer causing police raids an much harassment by various city departments.
