||ATK Premium (ATKP) is the smallest of the ATK sites, though still not a small site by general standards. For example, it has half the number of models and videos as Nubiles, but 60% more photos.
It is the ATK site that I find most difficult to categorise. I join it once or twice per year but I find it less exciting than the other ATK sites.
Its women are shaved, aged between 18 and 29, most are Caucasian girl-next-door types but there are some ethnic models (9 Black, 9 Asian, 20 Hispanic) and some catwalk type models. Though most models do not have tattoos and piercings, they are not excluded from ATKP. Many of the women also appear on ATK Galleria (ATKG) but there is no duplication of photos or videos. Some models only appear on ATKP and not on the other ATK sites and there is usually no obvious reason why ATK have chosen to put them on ATKP. When a model is on ATKP and ATKG, her content on ATKG is usually hotter but not always. Rather occasionally, a model's best content is on ATKP.
ATKP represents the work of 44 photographers from around the world, compared to ATKG's 97. Many photographers appear on both sites but some of ATKP's photographers do not appear on ATKG. For example, PJA Media shoots for Premium but not Galleria and his content is of such high quality that it even gets praised by other ATK photographers in the site comments. Sometimes a model who is on both ATKG and ATKP will have one photographer's work on ATKG and another's on ATKP but there is no pattern.
Photosets on ATKP are largely in a similar style to ATKG though usually ATKP content is less raunchy, less committed than ATKG, with some notable exceptions. Bree Daniels has superb content on ATKP, for example. If you like her, her content would justify a membership all by itself. ATKP does have some "artistic photos", which ATKG does not. "Artistic" means black and white, or abstract type constructions with models draped in silk or flowers. There is not much of it, far less than on METART, but there is enough to be noticeable whereas ATKG has none.
Older photo sets might be only in 1024 and 1600 or only 1024. There is more outdoor content on ATKP than on the other ATK sites. Photos are usually well lit. Most are properly colour balanced but there are a lot of exceptions and some photographers consistently produce poor colour. There is perhaps a slightly greater proportion of technically poorer content on Premium than on Galleria. Most if not all sets start fully clothed and many include explicit open leg shots, usually but not always less extreme than ATKG and definitely less extreme than ATKH.
ATKP has more video per model than the other ATK sites. It averages just over five videos per model compared to ATKG's just under three. But, as with ATKG and ATKH, some ATKP models have no videos and some have ten. Video is similar size and bitrate to ATKG (see Pros).
ATKP has a similar distribution between toys, non-toys, solo, bg, gg, to the other ATK sites, with the majority being solo without toys..
A model's photo sets are added about a week apart but videos are less predictable and not all models do them.
I cautiously recommend this site to lovers of women with no silicone, in good quality, solo photo-sets. Video enthusiasts should find plenty of content too. It contains bg and gg but it does not come over as a hardcore site. If you are a hardcore hound, you will probably not enjoy it. As I am not interested in bg, gg or video, it is hard for me to evaluate the quality of that content.
"Cautiously recommend" because I feel this site has a much less strong identity than the other ATK sites. That has made the review very difficult for me to write. Galleria and Hairy have a "wow factor" that Premium has not. It is easier to say what ATKP is not than to characterise what it is. It does not have the young teen focus or toy bias of Nubiles. It does not have the raunchiness and freshness of ATK Galleria or the explicitness of ATK Hairy. It is not an art site like MetArt or Femjoy.
But it has enough excellent content to justify joining at least once and it is small enough that the disappointing content is easy to avoid. The tour at http://www.atkpremium.com/tour/page/1 gives a very good guide to what you will find. http://free.atkpremium.com/main.php includes many full resolution sample photos and is updated weekly. If you have never joined any ATK site before, I would not recommend starting with ATKP but neither would I advise you not to. I recommend it to anyone who collects models rather than niches and who likes some of the models here.
I have joined the site several times over many years. "member < 1 month" applies just to this current repeat.
