About Me

Hello everyone, I am Gioncarlo Valentine {jian Carlo Valen teen} or {Ricardo} I'm a photographer from the Baltimore area, living in The Bronx NY. I'm 23 years old. I'm a full time undergrad student studying English at Towson University. I work alone usually, I shoot gorilla style. I have excellent gear, just don't have a team.

I have started to realize the Mechanical way this site works. Models and photographers meet and shoot. That is it. I, unfortunately cannot work that way. I am really passionate about what I do. I am a very humble person. I work incredibly hard to be accessible, which so many photographers don't do. I don't have an ego and I have no intention of developing one. I am not interested in meeting a stranger and just shooting with them. So I will usually have to have coffee or meet somewhere to talk about my vision and to show Idea samples. It doesn't really have to fit that mold I just need to develop a genuine rapport with whom ever I work with. Of course this could be done via Skype or something but I just don't feel comfortable meeting a person, then hastily shooting. I'm not only interested in shooting someones exterior beauty, when I shoot portraiture it is almost all about inner beauty, or inner conflict or whatever I am trying to retrieve in the shot. I'm not trying to just make new friends, although that is a welcomed side effect. I'm just stuck in my ways. So if the above is uncomfortable for you or something of that nature I would rather not work with you.

Also If people who I really don't see a place for, in my ideal portfolio contact me here to work with me I will usually just not respond. I know how that sounds but I try not to be in the mist of conflict. Telling people "No" is just something I don't do well over the internet. I will work on the whole letting people down easy thing. Also this doesn't only pertain to how people look, it pertains to attitude as well. I always look the models I want to work with up online. If you are self absorbed, egotistical in an obvious way; or if you find the need to talk down about people in a public way, it is unlikely that I would want to work with you.
