BIO / TEAR SHEETS

I guess this is the part where I am supposed to talk about myself in the third person as this is apparently what the so called "professional" photographer does, somehow this adds some kind of "WOW" factor to who I am and what I do, but let's face it I'm a photographer not a movie star. That being said I can only assume that you are here as an attempt to research me or look at some ridiculously beautiful people.

OK! So you are still reading, well I like long walks on the beach, I'm a hopeless romantic and one day hope to...wait... damn wrong blog JK CHRISTINE (my better half is Maltese I don't mess with the Maltese) ;)

And you're still reading meaning you probably want to know who I am and what I'm about so here it goes. My name is Rick Ikon, I'm a 30 year old photographer based in the Greater Toronto Area, I "SPECIALIZE" in beauty/glam/fitness photography. I've been shooting professionally since July 2008..... so 7 years roughly, I got into photography for a few different reasons, long story short I was subjected to this industry at about 6 years old, I was on my first television set at 8 years of age, (family worked in the biz) I spent several of my childhood years as a high fashion hair model (irony is I have none now) I seen my first playboy when I was 8 (Thanks Papa) and owned my first camera when I was around that age as well (it had disposable flash bulbs & ya I'm that old...), so needless to say it was kinda bound to happen when you look at it. 

Back to the point.... So like I said I have been shooting for 7 years, I've been retouching for 7 years as well, I'm trained by Los Angeles based & "SONY AWARD WINNING" photographer Nick Saglimbeni. I've been published in 3 different countries several times, in 24 years of being around this world I've pretty much seen it all, I've met and worked with the industries leading names in both glam and fitness, I've lived through all the ups and downs this industry has to offer and I'm pretty confident when I say I'm about as real as they get in this industry. I have always had a strong fascination with beauty so needless to say this is my passion, I do it for one reason and thats because I love to see the joy people who I work with have when we collaborate, it's literally that simple. Unfortunately there are WAY too many people in this game for the wrong reasons so I kinda feel like I need to say why I do what I do.

The long/short of it is this, I love what I do and I was born to do it. Thanks for reading, hopefully you'll be in front of my lens one day.

Stay Beautiful
