Photographer Jay Rickard (LightWeaver) has always been one of my favorite artists to profile. Jay blends classic physique poses with vibrant lighting and color as well as his own creative designs and fashions within his imagery. I have previously described Jay's work as having an 'old Hollywood' feel and it is one of the reasons his work so beautifully stands out.
There is nothing formulaic about Jay's process. He painstakingly plans the stories and shoots he creates, pulling together fashion and props to create images specific to the model he is shooting. This was never more apparent than Jay's sensational work with Chris Topel which was chronicled in Jay's Book The Man Who Walked.
