We had a great time shooting Mike “Mouse” McCoy for Worth Magazine this summer. Mouse is definitely one of the most interesting people we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Many thanks to Bandito Bros and Worth Magazine.
We took a short trip up the coast this weekend and photographed the fog rolling in at Pescadero Beach. Good times!
Congratulations to our extraordinarily talented friend Alex Ebert for his big win at this years Golden Globes! He won Best Original Score for his work on the film ‘All is Lost.’ What an accomplishment!

If you happen to be flying on Southwest or AirTran this month by sure to check out our portrait of Ron Finley on the cover of this month’s Spirit Magazine!
We had a great time shooting on location at the Pirate Speedway this weekend for an OC Weekly cover shoot. A raging ring of fire and a stuntman on a fast bike with no brakes, can it get more exciting? Check out our final image in this weeks issue of OC Weekly.
Here is a portrait of our stuntman Shawn McConnell:
And last but not least, a Rickett and Sones “making of” video:
We lent our dear friend Jiro Schneider a helping hand on his “Leap Of Faith” shoot last month. Nothing like watching your pals take a 30 foot plunge. You can check out Jiro’s final images at the JNA Gallery at the Bergamont station in Santa Monica this month.
Check out the behind the scenes photos that Sones shot (that’s Rickett in the sexy scuba gear):
Rickett & Sones are now being repped by the (ahem) wonderful people at Wonderful Machine, and already they have been, well, wonderful! This week they featured a shoot we did on their blog, check it out. We are overwhelmed with gratitude and humbled by how great everyone at Wonderful Machine has been.
Ron Finley is a badass. He works hard to create wellness awareness in urban environments by planting gardens in low-income homes, sidewalks, you name it. In particular he aims to turn ‘food deserts’ (urban areas with no access to organic foods) into ‘food forests’ using what is readily available in these areas: open space.
Imagine a world where lunchtime means foraging in your own neighborhood. Where city kids can have organic salads instead of Happy Meals. Better yet, these kids can eat the meals they helped to grow! As Ron puts it, “If kids grow kale, kids eat kale.”
We had the privilege of photographing Ron in his garden, which was an amazing experience. Thriving only begins to describe how much life is bursting from his sidewalk utopia. After the shoot he loaded us up with armfuls of greens and we got to experience firsthand the fruits of his labors. Did you know there was a mustard green that tastes exactly like wasabi? Neither did we!
People like Ron are making the world a better place, and inspiring others to do the same. The rest of us need to put our shovels where our mouths are and go “plant some shit!”
