About Me

"If it's not alluring, it's a waste of pixels."

Note 1: Please read to the end.

Note 2: I've finished the two books, which are now published, and am ready to start work on rebuilding my portfolio. I am hiring for almost all categories. Contact me for more information.

I'm Richard, a current writer and past newspaper photographer now working to improve and expand my portrait images. I'm interested in almost all types of images. My current primary interest is 1940-1960 vintage pinup images, inspired by the artwork of Gil Elvgren, the pinup photography of Bunny Yeager, and the publicity stills by the movie companies. I particularly want to do images featuring models and hot cars.

I shoot on location. To paraphrase a wise photographer, people don't live in front of white paper backgrounds.

Note that, if I have not worked with you before, I prefer you to be accompanied by a friend. Shall be happy to answer all questions.

Some other projects I particularly want to do:

1. Well-done ink.

2. Create modern interpretations of vintage pinups done by the famous "sweater girls" of the 1940-1960 era, such as Jane Russell, Lana Turner, Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe. Bettie Page also is a favorite.

3. Recreate some of Olivia's pinup artwork as a photograph; especially Moulin Rouge. (Ask for a link to an image.)

A Note About Tags and Friend Requests

If you send me a Tag or a Friend Request and you are in my area, I naturally will assume that you are interested in working with me. If this is not the case and you merely are trying to accumulate as many "friends" as possible, please refrain from hitting the Send key.
