Sometimes when we see the photos of the photographers we contact, we pause, and we remember we are professionals with a good and legitimate reason for making a request. These guys can be a little intimidating. But Randy (see his self-portrait on the last page) is an easygoing ball of sunshine. You can see his warm nature in his images as well as his slightly off-kilter imagination (forced antler installation?). Connect with him on his site and social links listed below to learn more — and he is open to model interest.
Born in a small town in coastal South Carolina, Randy Addison grew up among the traditions and trappings of Southern Gothic culture, the perfect inspiration to see the world with an artist's eye. Storytelling through words and art led to a BA in English and an MFA in Illustration. Art guides all aspects of his life, including time as an artist for a mannequin company; a career as a barber, in which he felt himself a sculptor of hair; his private drawings about anatomy and revelation; or his photography as seen here, elevating particular moments or emotions ... or creating atmospheric mindscapes. No matter what the project, when working with models, Randy's goal is to show them something heroic and beautiful about themselves they've never seen before.
