About Me

Check out my instagram. (

Hello everyone, I am Gioncarlo Valentine {jian Carlo Valen teen} or Ricky. I'm a Baltimore photographer living in New York. I'm 24 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 tend to shoot mostly models of color. Mainly Black. Black beauty is what fulfills and inspires me most. People may think that's limiting. But Black and Brown people are far too magical and diverse to be limited or limiting.

I realize the Mechanical way this site works. Models and photographers meet and shoot. That is it. I tend to shy away from this. 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 show or develop a mood board. 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 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.
