L.A. Confidential: Designated Drivers

01-Johnny-Beyer-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

Andrew Phillips (Click); grooming by Ernesto Casillas Native Californians Andrew Phillips and Johnny Beyer ended up at the Fashionisto L.A. Casting Call by playing chauffeur to their respective model buddies.  The similarities end there:  Andrew is a total goofball who’s just starting out, and he happily jumped into the hot seat;  Johnny is super low-key [...]


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: Justin Gaston

02-Justin-Gaston-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

I was happy to see that Justin Gaston (Vision) was on the list for The Fashionisto L.A. Casting Call – apart from his obvious good looks, he’s charming in a very understated, authentic way – he’s almost from another time.  Grooming by Ernesto Casillas. I dug up a shot of Justin, with a retro vibe [...]


L.A. Confidential: Double Vision

01-George-Finn-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

Continuing with The Fashionisto L.A. Casting Call, here’s George Finn (Vision); grooming by Ernesto Casillas. George has a great name, perfect skin and extremely wide-set eyes.  Does anything else really matter? Nickolas Beltran (Vision) is one of the few guys that I was able to spend more than five minutes with (in the parking lot, [...]

L.A. Confidential: Peter Urisch

peter-urisch-richard-pier-petit

File under Unicorn: The spectacular Peter Urisch (Photogenics); grooming by Ernesto Casillas Peter has been on my shortlist for quite a while, so I was really happy that Carl chose him for the casting call (I stayed out of things).  He has the most extraordinary look – something almost archaic….so I just let him stand [...]

02B-Maxime-Bergougnoux-Richard-Pier-Petit-WP

The perfectly perfect Maxime Bergougnoux (Photogenics); grooming by Ernesto Casillas The Fashionisto touched down in L.A., albeit briefly.  A casting call was held, a number of select models appeared, and I used the occasion to bust out the tungsten lights that were gathering dust to shoot some quick, classic Hollywood-inspired portraits and assorted animations.  Here’s [...]

Sean Thomson @ Ford; coat by Rachel Comey; jacket by Dries Van Noten; jeans by South Willard I could shoot Ford’s Sean Thomson until the cows come home.  Pardon the pun, but it’s easy to imagine shooting Sean a hundred different ways.  By any standard, this nineteen-year-old has a perfect face, and – in and [...]
