Photo Diary: Black Girl Beautiful by NikkRich

Where has the time gone?! I'm still raving over the experience I had at the black beauty convention, Black Girl Beautiful! Ever since then, I've developed a small community of people that i'm happy to be around daily .. and that's says lot! 

It was great being able to support black business such as Onyx Box and Nicolette (their matte lipstick is AMAZING!) which is seemingly hard when your not a native to LA and don't know where to go. If you have suggestions, leave them in the comments below!

All in all, I can't wait for the next Black Girl Beautiful in 2017!

PARTS


Why do this? Perspective. I want to improve. I want to break the mold I've gotten so cozy being in. Creating by the words of Capa -

' If it isn't working, get closer.'

Creative Collaboration - AVA: Part Deux - ✌🏾 by NikkRich

 

AVA came to LA!

When ever we get together, we always create!

She came out to LA for a couple days and like always, we shot on a whim.

( Minimal planning seems to be working out for me lately. ) 

We met up in Hollywood and caught up while independent designer, Alex helped Ava with the styling. Everywhere in Los Angeles is perfect for a photo shoot so naturally, I shot in an apartment complex. What I enjoy most about apartments here, is it seems they all seem to have a hint of lingering nostalgia.

 

All in all, it was a good time as always but now i'm screaming AVA COME BACK !

Visit her website for music updates and dope ass visuals!

Model Files: Taryn (Muse) by NikkRich

Taryn.

I first shot her in Atlanta about 2-3 years ago while I was attending school. She inspires me with her movement, her ability to switch her “attitude” on and off and her skill to smoothly transition through emotions.

I don't think it's possible to search for a muse, I believe it's an encounter that happens on your journey. Similar to a unicorn (except they're real, I'm sure others would beg to differ but that's a whole other conversation).

For me, it has to be someone that truly inspires me creatively. I can’t tell you where I found Taryn, or who introduced us but we clicked instantly.

I learned how to retouch on images of her, via my professor, Allen Cooley. She set the tone for future work.

I was so thrilled when I heard she was coming to L.A.

To sum it up -

She's the homie.

 

 

 

cheers.
