About me
I and Bill Espar #2254694 are trying to put together a summer shoot. We are trying to pull the models for aug 2nd.
We would like to have your participation as well as your image to put on our promotional piece.
We will be shooting at the Coffee Creek park in Chesterton In. on rout 49. We have models from 16 years of age and up.
This will be a non nude photo shoot. For those models who are interested in shooting semi to nude photos you will have to work that out along with the pay with the photographers on that day and will not be allowed to shoot within site of all under age models. This will be strictly enforced. We are planning on paying the models and that will be based on the amount of photographers involved. We hope to give you the amount of pay well in advance.
We hope that you are interested and look forward to hearing any suggestions that you might have for us.
Steven and Bill

Fantastical and exotic,
I have 35 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.

REPLY to other photographer.....

Yes Yes Yes......Imagine 35 years of this. This was not like it was in the city, with real Modeling agencies Real Models. This was never like this until these so called models sites came out. No professionalism. Show up with you wardrobe in a plastic Walmart bag. No make up or anything to wear as make up. Hair like you just been fucked by the  local high school football team and bitchen cause its to hot or cold or your tired because you partied all night. Collect your money. No " It was nice working with you" "Thank you for your business" " I look forward to working with you again" Just grab your money and run. Most don't even enquire about the photos. And then when they do post them they don't give you credit or a link back to your site. And I always look forward to going to there site and seeing that my work has been viewed more than any of the other images that they post. This is more of a Vanity Site for girls that want to Play Model. We need more serious people on here.
