Bare Minimum by NikkRich


This wasn't even supposed to be. The concept that we started off with was completely different. Looking back now, I guess none of that matters now. The end result was probably better than what would have been, had it been. This group of ladies were amazing! We all put hard work and hours into this which I'm GRATEFUL for.

I submitted these images to two magazines and got declined from both. This isn't the first time. I was absolutely sure that I would get in this time seeing that this idea was something that came straight from feeling. When I got declined I thought I would be more down than I actually was. I realized I'm  actually not looking for magazine acceptance. I was already taking it back to the drawing board before the rejections and i'm very much in love with these images. The rejections did make me wonder, what IF I submitted them to 1 more magazine, maybe that would have been the magazine to accept them. I'll never know with this set, maybe with the next.

Endless selfies on set Part: II

These girls were troopers. We didn't finish till late in the night but the good vibes were flowing through the whole shoot. I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with.


Below are some final images from the shoot

Model Files: Fig & Suki by NikkRich

I've been on a constant shooting schedule lately and I've felt I needed to add something new to my port. So I got in contact with Fig & Suki through T.H.E. Artist Agency, who are always willing to help when I need them. I feel my portfolio falling into place. The idea I had of what my portfolio would look like growing up is becoming a reality.

A couple of weeks ago I had a feeling of stagnancy. Falling into repetition. This shoot help change that. Now, I am on the path to securing an aesthetic (something I have been battling) I guess redundancy and aesthetic become perpendicular at some point. At the same time I want to be the photographer who continuously reinvents themselves. Getting stuck in a box or category is something I want to move away from (i've always been a bit rebellious).

By all means, I am still learning patience but I see the necessity of the gradual up hill climb. The journey is slow but i'm beginning not to mind it.
