So a sad day as David has gone 10 January 2016 ,I will remember him , because my favorite song video China Girl ,

this is my China Girl I have worked with her for 9 years, so because of my China Girl I will always remember David Bowie

A rose by another name Shakespeare black and white photography a model with a rose Phillip Ritchie


Being English and growing up with Shakespeare did not influence my life in my youth,
 yet now older maybe a little wiser Shakespeare does ,

so with that in mind I created my thoughts in a photograph   ( A rose by any other name )

Model call me Natalie New High Heels street's of Costa Mesa CA

Costa Mesa the City

I live and work here in Costa Mesa ,have done for maybe 15 years as a Studio photographer ,some times I do shoot on location ,  nothing much surprises me , but it may surprise some people passing through Costa Mesa . to see a model walking her new high heel's

As I do like to create stories with models about what goes on in there life as a model

This story is about new high heels that hurt your feet with model Natalie
so I thought well then ,just take them for a walk to get them more comfy ,

So as a Photographer I tell my stories in pictures ( no shoes where hurt in this photo shoot )

The Pro Show with Polina Hryn Wetpuzzle Piece Productions and Jacqueline Depaul & Phillip Ritchie

Artist extraordinaire Polina Hryn  Wet Puzzle productions ,
 asked me to be a guest on her TV internet program  PO SHO  and chat about my photography with Model Jacqueline Depaul, whom I have worked with many times over the past few years , 
Having Jacqueline there made it very easy for me to give input to Polina's questions as I felt the thoughts of a model would also help in people understanding my answers ,
As we where talking about Jacqueline's nude sensual photo shoot with me as well plus showing some of the images that I had taken of her that day

a link to Polina's show plus Polina did a great presentation of my Photography and a great show case of Model Jacqueline Depaul pictures  Thank you Polina

Teddy Bears picnic at my photography Studio

Teddy Bears they love to play and have fun ,

  big Teddy was in a photo shoot with a beautiful model he felt very grownup , 


  but in the morning when I came in ,well just what do you think had  happened ,Teddy had put the word out   
                                       it"s Party time down at the studio ,

                                                        I think the Picture tells the story ,

if you go down to the studio today  your in for a big surprise ,


Black stocking one high heel stiletto shoe

I teach in my workshop some times it pays to keep it simple , can make for a much more dramatic shot ,such as this one in Black and White ,

Christine Adams IDiivil model in black & white and Colour

I have been creating images as a reflection for many years meaning what you see is there reflection in a large sheet of Plexiglas  not them ,
 always get the images I want from Christine she has that uncanny knack of knowing what I am talking about , 
but my thoughts are always black & white concepts as was the this shoot with her ,

 but some how one remains in colour , just does not seem to work in BW  so have posted it
 two different looks from the same concepts ,


smoking is maybe bad for you, but depends how you look at it Black & White erotic picture of a model wearing shorts

just an idea ,

when we talk about a model being smoking hot , these are my thoughts ,



Nikee Lynn in black and white photography images not nude, topless ,sensual, sexy, yes

one of my most favorite  models over the past few years is Nikee Lynn,
 just an awesome model works really hard to give you your concept even if she does not understand it at the time ,but does when she see's the image finished ,

these are but a few from earlier this year 2015 ,






Michael Jackson gone but not forgotten a photographic tribute

Michael Jackson gone and missed by so many for his music and dance ,
one thing I always remember ,   when he went up on his toes ,

so I created this image as my Tribute to this amazing entertainer Michael Jackson

Mercedes 2016 AMG GT S Parkinglot Art

My Studio is located in Costa Mesa CA has a large parking area as there is a Star Bucks here as well ,

I went out  saw this Mercedes out side my studio , had not seen one before so just for fun I gabbed my camera shoot half dozen images ,
but I did shoot the car as an art piece , I call it my Parking lot Art, I really like the design of this Mercedes AMG GT S  ,

my point being is I am only a studio photographer, had I been asked it would have been a Studio shoot ,
but I am kinder pleased how it came out , I used a Canon MK1115D set on program shot into the sun as well  ,just planned my composition ,




Me Natalie

I Remember the movie  "me Natalie " 1969 ,  Just love the confidence in the title   ( me Natalie  ) what else do you need to know , me Natalie" is enough

 over the past few years I have worked with Natalie Clark Artist in charcoal plus very talented in body painting ,   Natalie's Blog

I also photographed her for her web site etc and some times she would stand in as a model ,Natalie would say I am not a model I am just helping you out ,

so my not a model Natalie helped out many times and  I saw her start to change she was bring her own magic into the image ,her look and body language where changing ,she was ,with out really realizing it becoming a model ,

over the past year I have photographed Natalie as ( me Natalie ) as a model ,there is a harmony when we shoot ,I now create ideas just for her ,

These are from a very impromptu photo shoot Friday 22 Nov 2015 there was no reason just felt I wanted to shoot with her ,  I will post some of her other photo shoots at a later date ,

I also partnered with Natalie on our work together  at   Art Blog










The Days of Wine and Roses

Makeup concepts,in colour and styling with Devon Duff makeup Artist

sometimes it is really nice to let others create the the image to shoot ,such as this concept created by makeup artist Devon Duff with model Madeline Schulte

I do have to say the Madeline had her magic switch on 100% , she could do know wrong,
 I gave her a little direction and she made it happen ,

I think shooting in colour plus the laughter between  them and there personality just make it very interesting and enjoyable and fun photo shoot ,



 





Erotic ,Nude , High Heels ,black & white

 Erotic ,Nude , High Heels ,black & white ,  what more can I say ,


Red lips two models yet there face's are devoid of colour

It totally works for me, not two on big black and white with spot spot colour ,but this one was perfect for this idea


Abstract maybe ,but yet still recognizable lip's in black & white ,

When asked why I shoot and create images like this , I just do not have the answer ,
I am working with a model you have an idea , and it just sort of happens ,you see it and that's it 


nude model Pure Rebel Between two mirror's

I still enjoy creating pictures the old fashion-way even thou I shoot digital this was created with the model standing between two mirrors and I shot her reflection  ,
used PS to edit into black and white ,but still show the blue jeans ,
this was also the first time I worked with Pure Rebel from Model Mayhem # 2621488 she is truly a beautiful person with a stunning body follows direction and gives you 110%

the last picture of 2014, the first picture of 2015 at my photography studio in Costa Mesa CA Happy Newyear to All

for many years now I have been having a photoshoot on newyears eve at my studio in Costa Mesa,
this year Actress Jenelle Jones of LA CA was my model ,much music and laughter plus snacks and champagne  ,
we shoot some amusing and fun head shoot as we approached  midnight , to celebrate 2015 Jenelle said she wanted to recreate a image I had done with a model on my studio sofa but that model was naked
 I said well if you do then take of your clothes she laughed, so I took this as the last image of 2014 ,


 Jenelle then drank some more Champagne through her clothes around in abandonment laid on the Sofa ,
  I took this shoot my first of 2015 , Happy New Year to All

Love Hurts by.Raggedy ann


the draw opened she picked me up and just looked at me which seemed like for ages yet was just a few seconds ,




scooped up the letters and cards she had saved over the years ,

carried me to the waste paper bin dropped all the letters and cards in and put me on the floor ,


 I could see the tears in her eyes yet I can not cry so wish I could right now ,

then,she just turned and walked away ,

 my little heart stopped for a moment waiting but she did not look back ,
