Two models a very soft look in photography black and white

Some times shadows need to be soft so the sensual side of a woman shows, just a little makeup hair pulled back,

Stylized Pinup's a big change from Erotic Black and White photography

My makeup artist and stylist Elise asked if I would like to shoot a pinup style look  with model Satine Barre ,
well Satine is just stunning so yes was my answer ,
 a very different style of photography for me but one I totally enjoyed plus, I just loved the styling Elise created .

How to balance a glass of wine when you have no table Black and White photography oh and a model

get your model to lay flat on the floor , place your glass of wine on a firm spot on her body and ask not to breath that's it ,you have now balanced your glass of wine ,

a Big Ass Smith and Wesson used as a prop for a nude model in black and white

I enjoy story telling in my photography, I leave you the viewer to maybe understand my thoughts or just your own ,

I think this hand gun from Smith and Wesson it is not what it can do ,but just what it it's Art in Metal

I think the model is stunning not in what she can do ,but what she is doing within this image ,

telling my story ,

Black & White photograhy sensual, erotic, sexy ,maybe it's a shadow ,maybe what the model Satine Barre is wearing or not

working with the very talented Fashion model Satine Barre in a more erotic way ,

( not nude ) just the way Satine is moving  her body in relation to what she is wearing I find so much more interesting it tells a better story of sensuality with a little  eroticism ,just one from many photo shoots we have worked on ,

will post more over the next few weeks

working in a recording studio as a photographer

Watching the way a musician plus singers use there talent and go into there own world ,so they can create what we love to here from nothing but an idea that is in there head ,

always a magical time for me, when they ask me to come in  and shoot some candied images ,
just a few of many ,

Light and Shadow creating a Silhouette in black & white a nude yes, a hole in one maybe in Golf ,How to use your putter

the point of interest ,

this is created as a silhouette,

 a nude yes but it has a different point of view
 not just nude ,it also has a connection to Golf ,

 maybe a tad erotic ,maybe it is what some dreams consist of ,

maybe funny maybe cool

only you know what you think ,

I only created it , what was I thinking ,only I know ,

A rose by another name Shakespeare black and white photography a model with a rose Phillip Ritchie

Being English and growing up with Shakespeare did not influence my life in my youth,
 yet now older maybe a little wiser Shakespeare does ,

so with that in mind I created my thoughts in a photograph   ( A rose by any other name )

The Pro Show with Polina Hryn Wetpuzzle Piece Productions and Jacqueline Depaul & Phillip Ritchie

Artist extraordinaire Polina Hryn  Wet Puzzle productions ,
 asked me to be a guest on her TV internet program  PO SHO  and chat about my photography with Model Jacqueline Depaul, whom I have worked with many times over the past few years , 
Having Jacqueline there made it very easy for me to give input to Polina's questions as I felt the thoughts of a model would also help in people understanding my answers ,
As we where talking about Jacqueline's nude sensual photo shoot with me as well plus showing some of the images that I had taken of her that day

Teddy Bears picnic at my photography Studio

Teddy Bears they love to play and have fun ,

  big Teddy was in a photo shoot with a beautiful model he felt very grownup , 

  but in the morning when I came in ,well just what do you think had  happened ,Teddy had put the word out   
                                       it"s Party time down at the studio ,

                                                        I think the Picture tells the story ,

if you go down to the studio today  your in for a big surprise ,

Black stocking one high heel stiletto shoe

I teach in my workshop some times it pays to keep it simple , can make for a much more dramatic shot ,such as this one in Black and White ,

Christine Adams IDiivil model in black & white and Colour

I have been creating images as a reflection for many years meaning what you see is there reflection in a large sheet of Plexiglas  not them ,
 always get the images I want from Christine she has that uncanny knack of knowing what I am talking about , 
but my thoughts are always black & white concepts as was the this shoot with her ,

 but some how one remains in colour , just does not seem to work in BW  so have posted it
 two different looks from the same concepts ,

smoking is maybe bad for you, but depends how you look at it Black & White erotic picture of a model wearing shorts

just an idea ,

when we talk about a model being smoking hot , these are my thoughts ,

Nikee Lynn in black and white photography images not nude, topless ,sensual, sexy, yes

one of my most favorite  models over the past few years is Nikee Lynn,
 just an awesome model works really hard to give you your concept even if she does not understand it at the time ,but does when she see's the image finished ,

these are but a few from earlier this year 2015 ,

Michael Jackson gone but not forgotten a photographic tribute

Michael Jackson gone and missed by so many for his music and dance ,
one thing I always remember ,   when he went up on his toes ,

so I created this image as my Tribute to this amazing entertainer Michael Jackson

Mercedes 2016 AMG GT S Parkinglot Art

My Studio is located in Costa Mesa CA has a large parking area as there is a Star Bucks here as well ,

I went out  saw this Mercedes out side my studio , had not seen one before so just for fun I gabbed my camera shoot half dozen images ,
but I did shoot the car as an art piece , I call it my Parking lot Art, I really like the design of this Mercedes AMG GT S  ,

my point being is I am only a studio photographer, had I been asked it would have been a Studio shoot ,
but I am kinder pleased how it came out , I used a Canon MK1115D set on program shot into the sun as well  ,just planned my composition ,
