Los Angeles-based Rickett & Sones is the collaborative team-up of husband and wife Ryan and Sonia Rickett. The creative tandem first crossed paths while on the set of a fashion shoot when both were photographing for the same account. As luck would have it, they had instantaneous chemistry, and that connection would lead to their professionally pairing-up. Ever since they merged forces, both have set out to complement each other’s art and creativity.
Their backgrounds, however, are a bit diverse. Photography was Ryan’s way of expressing his passion for telling stories. Much of his years is meticulously documented, his life viewable in stills and videos. Ryan went to school at the Art Center College of Design, and has directed award winning music videos, commercials as well as web virals.
Sonia, on the other hand got hooked on photography while in high school, liking the ‘old school’ darkroom environment, as she magically watched prints materialize before her very eyes. A camera quickly became her constant companion and the passion has been with her ever since. Glowingly reviewed recently on Feature Shoot, the couple is thrilled at the positive comments.
Though it is called the City of Lights, these ethereal photos of Los Angeles portray a different side of the famed destination with the use of different photography techniques.
Utilizing long exposure times, they documented the movements of stars across the night skies in the mountains, deserts, and seashores of the Western US. See their otherworldly series called Haunting and Ethereal California Landscapes here.
