Leading lines for days. . Model: @annatrubachova Lights: @_mhernan_photos @_commonconcerns_ Wardrobe/ : @anna.trubachova Styling . . Hello again, Socialandia. Edit #2 of my latest photoshoot with the amazing Anna Trubachova. This was the very last look of the day and it lasted all of 5 minutes...for a very good reason. This was practically a full body leather outfit. Can you imagine being in this thing with the hot, 90+ degree sun in your face??? Well I didn't have to because I was seeing it right before my eyes. She rocked it. I particularly chose this photo because as the caption states, the rows of steel beams act as leading lines for the subject. If your eyes start wandering around, they will lead you right back to Anna. Also it might not seem like it, but there is a lot of stuff going on here in post. I was inspired by the look of saturated retro slide film so having a wide dynamic range was key. Primarily it's a composite job of two images so that I was able to bring back the rich, blue San Diego skies while maintaining normal skin tones. Lighting consisted of two reflectors. . . #RicoyPhotoShoot #SanDiego #California #NorthPark #ClearSkies #BlueSkies #SanDiegoPhotographer #Print #Photoflex #RedHair #LAFashion #ProfessionalModel #Vogue #Editorial #EditorialFashion #Fashion
Blue skies and concrete. Photographer: @nicoricoy Model: @anna.trubachova Lights: @_mhernan_photos @_commonconcerns_ Wardrobe: @anna.trubachova Stylist . . . Hello! It's been almost 2 years since my last post. Since 2005, photography has been both my favorite form of expression, and a major source of income. The key (in anything really) is to make sure there is balance between the two. I'm happy to share with you that I've once again put myself in a position to bring that balance back. . . . #RicoyPhotoShoot #SanDiego #California #NorthPark #ClearSkies #BlueSkies #SanDiegoPhotographer #Print #RedHair #LAFashion #ProfessionalModel #Vogue #Editorial #EditorialFashion #Fashion #FashionStyling #AlienBees #LAModels #MidAgeModel #EditorialFashionShoot #SDPhotographer #RunwayModel #Model #ModelAgency ­ #RedPumps #Heels #Red #Blue

Shout out to my dearest friend, Marissa, who's adventuring in Lima, Peru right now on her own like a boss. . This photo was taken six years ago(!) against a natural blue sky background on a very steep hill, believe it or not. Still holds up as one of my favorite shoots. . #RicoyPhotoShoot #Jump #BlueSkies #SanDiego #DictionaryHill #SpringValley #SanDiegoPhotographer #Portrait
This is my good friend from Mexico and he's one of the hardest working dudes I know. Actually, #paleteros in general are some of the hardest and most humble peeps you'll ever meet in your life. Ask anyone in #SoCal that and they'll tell you. I met him last year as he was hustlin' my street and I'm glad our friendship has grown. We plan on doing a bad ass avant garde / conceptual shoot some time in the future with his cart when all the pieces of the puzzle are put together. For now, this will do 😁 Hasta luego, Omar. Nos vemos el proximo año! . . The photo was set up on the spot in a couple of minutes with the awesome help of @behumanbebrilliant and @lunaricard8. . . #RicoyPhotoShoot #ChulaVista #Paletero #Portrait #Retrato #Mexicano #OnTheRoad #SanDiegoPhotographer #SoCalLife #CaliLife #SouthBaySD #HEM #Mexican #VivaMexico #TheHustle
@johnnyvarsity pushing plastic. This shot was from a photo shoot with my @mahfia_tv family for @pennyskateboards back in 2014. Two years later and it's being used for large window displays at several Tilly's in the Southern California region.
