United States, California
Personally, I feel that I'm the prodigal son to photography. Many years I had lost my way and found my way back. In my youth I had the passion for film, lighting, and story... but life was full of complicated twist.
I had found desire in shooting... I wanted to shoot every genre, but I realized economics was a sobering truth. So I made a choice to narrow my passion for the time being down to focusing on the female nude.
I have been dedicated to just that for the last year and I have committed to diligently shooting that genres consistently throughout 2016.
I long for nudes in nature, urban decay, relics of all forms of abandon. I desire to shoot in neighboring states to California with season Muses and Passionately articulate Models finding there cadence.
I dedicate 4 days out of the week to this outlet of creativity... and I am seeking like minded Artist.
Long term goal? Book Mid Range Goal? Canvas Prints for Art Gallery Events. Shot term goal? Building a strong network of professionals interested in growing, creating, and cultivating phenomenal relations.
My father was a semi professional photographer and I worked in his shadow very briefly.
I took photo shop in High School. "This is the extent of my Institutional Learning Forum".
I was an intern at the age of 14 to 19 years old for a cable tv program. 1983-1988 [Skills: Lighting, Sound, Video Camera Operator, Video Editor, and Director] also Wedding Photography.
I Freelanced as a photographer for a from 1986-1987 on small projects.
-There was an endless gap in photography for many years-
I returned to photography in 2011 shooting Freelance Gigs, Building Portfolios, Shooting everything from Dance, Fashion, Makeup, Erotic, Lingerie, Bikini, Nudes, Fetish, and Adult.
I have been continuously shooting Freelance since 2011 and into the current date of 2016. Most of my work is attainable by doing a search engine query of Muse Evolution Photography, John Lewis Rushing Jr, or Rikkiz820.
I have also worked as an extra hand in a shoot for a Treats Magazine gig Featuring Model Amanda Pizziconi shot by Photographer: Brett Ratner... Quite honestly, I really did nothing on that gig of any major significance. But I was brought in with another fellow Photographer: Lou Cabales who served as Brett Ratners #1 AP guy.
I have worked with some amazing Models in the industry on my own: Ulorin Vex, St. Merrique, Shilo Von Porcelaine, Floofie, Anoush Anou, Deanna Deadly, and Zoe Celeste West to mention a few.
