About the Book
The first session with any model can be awkward and strained a bit though many great images have come out of this scenario. Jay sees an initial shoot as a vetting process. Those who are invited back for a second shoot have hit his creative radar. Those who continue passed a second shoot are in the running for the title of Muse. Beyond that a synergistic creative relationship is born where literally anything can happen.
Chris has accepted Jay Rickards creative process and exercised patience through typical artist dysfunctions causing schedule changes, weird ideas that turned out better than they probably should have and mood swings that sometimes lead to swearing at lighting equipment. Chris is a good egg. Photographers and artists working in any other discipline would be lucky to have him as a subject of their creations.

I have been a professional photographer for over two decades.

There also is a focus on social commentary pertaining to the political climate and other areas of interest..
