Where is the best place for a new photographer to find beautiful women that like their pictures taken? My answer to this question led me to a strip club. While on R&R from Afghanistan with singles in my pocket and pin ups in my head, away I went. My name is Nate Ritcheson and I was born in Indiana in 1986. I’m in the US Army and I started Twisted Photography 3 years ago. My trip to the strip club was just what I needed, I met a nice young lady that was starting a pin up oriented clothing line and she was looking for a photographer to take some pictures of her stuff. After this shoot it’s been a lot more work than I expected, but it’s been a fun ride. I’ve always been into racing and car shows. Growing up around fast cars and old time racers it’s just became a part of me. After running across some prints by David Perry I instantly knew what direction I wanted to go in. I started a Model Mayhem account and recently got my own website up and running. I like to stick mainly to the pin up and hot rod scene, but will veer away from it to shoot anything different and out there, such as zombies and gore. I have had lots of help along the way, being self taught in photography I take all the advice I can get. Thanks for the help and remember “Beauty is Twisted”.
