Niclas Gillis (DNA) & Nick Lacy (Next); styled by Eugene Ong; grooming by Alexis Swain @ Next Artists:  all clothes Native Son. The last, and most irksome vanishing editorial from 2012, is this story,  shot on the fly for a brand-new Berlin-based mens fashion magazine.  The magazine approached me with their ne plus ultra media [...]


Fantastic Four

It’s been a while – a long while – since I’ve had the time to update this blog; the early weeks, and now months, of 2012 have been crowded with a mixture of catch-up editing and planning and shooting new editorials.  At last, I’m on the cusp of the point where I can stay on [...]


Modern Screen: The Publicity Stills

005-Brooke-Nesbitt-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

Since we could only include a single shot of each model in our doomed dinner party for theones2watch, I thought it would be fun to put together an additional set of images. based on autographed production stills from Hollywood’s Golden Age. I mean, these kids are the L.A. all-stars, right? Why not give their fan [...]

Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?

01-AJ-English-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

The iconic face of A.J. English (Next), from our second collaboration . . . On Labor Day I teamed up with a hell of a lot of people (25? 28?) to shoot something conceptually straightforward but technically very, very challenging.  Here’s hoping I can take the raw material all the way to fruition without screwing [...]


L.A. Confidential: Ryan Curry

01-Ryan-Curry-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

Have a look at Ryan Curry’s (Next) book and you see a complete chameleon; one minute he’s all boyish charm and the next he’s convincingly bad-ass.  Ryan is definitely one of the guys from The Fashionisto’s L.A. Casting Call that I’d like to shoot again – great face, great attitude…. Grooming by Ernesto Casillas.


L.A. Confidential: Corey Wallace

03-Corey-Wallace-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

There are basically 2 kinds of flawless beauty; there’s run-of-the-mill flawless beauty, and then there’s ridiculous and completely unfair flawless beauty – you know, the kind that comes with brains, personality, inventiveness, foreign accent – the works.  Australian native Corey Wallace (Next) – a dead-ringer for the young Gary Cooper – could be the finest [...]


L.A. Confidential: A.J. English

03-AJ-English-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

Winding down with The Fashionisto’s L.A. Casting Call, here we have A.J. English (Next), one of the nicest surprises of the day.  Self-aware in the best possible way, A.J. knows how to take a picture.  I could have easily edited twenty frames or more, from the 5 minute session, but Carl doesn’t want me to [...]


L.A. Confidential: Wassup Rockers

01-Jason-Masik-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

Frampton Comes Alive: continuing the L.A. casting story we have the delightful 70′s throwback Maxime Sokolinski (Next). Grooming by Ernesto Casillas. One of the real stand-outs of the day for me was Zach (Photogenics).  Hypnotic isn’t a word I throw around lightly, but his face and demeanor kind of blew me away.  Grooming by Ernesto [...]


A Hawaiian In Paris

Hudson Taylor @ Click NY and Next Miami, wearing vintage Jantzen About six weeks or so ago, I had the opportunity to shoot a test with the rather phenomenal Hudson Taylor. Much of his book – mostly shot in Hawaii – was on the commercial side; our mutual goal was to nudge him into a [...]
