Fantastical and exotic,
I have 32 years of experience in commercial photography, starting in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from high school, I attended The American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois. After leaving school, I worked in various photography studios for three years. After working full-time, I became an assistant photographer working with clients, such as Playboy, McDonald's, Keebler, and Sara Lee. I assisted for photographers on location in Seattle, Washington, for Kimberly Clark, and San Francisco, California, for Huffy Bicycles. In 1984 I opened Steven Ricks Photography Studio in Chicago, Illinois. Some of my clients were Chicago Magazine, Sears, Quaker Oats, JC Penny, California Dreamers, WBBM Channel 2, K-Mart, My experience ranges from fashion, food, product, hospitals, and industrial. My vast array of skills and experience is an assurance to you that I am capable of handling all photography needs with professionalism and high quality results. Also, as an artist, I have shown my surreal photography in many galleries including Chicago, Illinois and Soho, New York, San Francisco, Calf.
I am against escorts, I do not encourage them. I will not accept boyfriends, husbands or any other significant others. If it's a matter of safety on your part, I can provide plenty of references. If you have not looked at my work or taken the time to check me out, Then you are not the professional you think that you are. We won't be shooting together. If after all this you feel the need to bring someone because you have this gut feeling that I am the son of Jack the Ripper and Freddy Kreuger, then I reserve the right to bring my wife because after all we don't want you to take advantage of this 53 year old fat man.
MODELS BEWARE.............Amazing Bio's that I just CAN'T get past.
I have never heard so much crap in my life.
Have a Camera, Computer, A place to shoot, YOU must be a Professional Photographer.You probably even Qualify to be an agent to the models.
32 Years in this business. Real Clients. Real Paid jobs. Real models. Real ads. Real tear sheets. Look at my web page www.stevenjricks.com
MODELS if you read this on a photographers bio or his photo comments
I read this on a photographers Bio.....OH MY GOD?????? Again...Have a Camera?
(Today is May 26, 2011. I don't own a studio, or tens of thousands of dollars in fancy lighting equipment. Every photograph in my portfolio was taken with a Canon mini-digital PowerShot Camera. That said, I take the world and rip art from the clutches of the mundane nonetheless. Not on every shoot, but pretty often...lol.
Also, please note: I do not date models...or anyone else. Dating is for high-school students...and secular fanatics...lmao )
Fu--ing Just shoot me, Another loser Photographers Tag......
"I spent some time reviewing your port today and came away quite impressed. You don't settle for the easy pose and the look and feel of your work is naturally seductive; to me, (Well yeah just to You) the body of your work feels very organic and non-contrived, (Organic and non Contrived ?) (Really?) a sometimes very elusive thing to achieve. (Yeah very elusive) I will follow up with you for a possible shoot when i travel to Ohio in May. meantime, best of luck to you.--kevin
OMG.....RED LIGHT... DESPERATE TAG........
("a Photo Artist & Visionary")
A Visionary of WHAT.
(Casting Call....... "When someone has an idea for a project and they need people to collaborate with, like models, make up artists, etc".......)
WRONG.... A casting call is set up by a Client, an Ad Agency the Modeling Agency and sometimes..SOMETIMES the Photographer to evaluate talent for an existing job.
Why do you shoot nudes of yourself and post them? No One wants to see them.
(Hey! My name is Kristy. I am currently a student at Indiana University studying in Sociology. I WILL NOT and DO NOT DO NUDES. DO NOT ASK!!!!! I love the woman body and think it is a work of art but do not want the whole world to see me naked, it's my treasure. You ask and I will not give a reply, so don't. I am just a Southern Belle trying to find her way in this modeling business.)
STOP......STOP.....STOP......Maybe we don't want to see you naked! Maybe NO ONE wants to see you naked! Don't Assume that just because I shoot nudes, that I want to shoot you nude. Maybe if some of the models on this site were a little more professional they would be offered more professional work.

OK...Miss experienced Go into any real agency and tell them that you WON"T give them your measurements.
Ok another great quote from another moron.....
"Lotion helps a lot to hide small defects on your skin and makes the skin tone look more even, if you are uncomfortable with me or someone else helping you to apply, please come to the shoot with good quality lotion applied already."
Really..... I bet you have a special applicator for that Mr.mm#766017
Let me know what you think.
