Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson  Marcio-and-Marcos-Patriota

Terrence “Terry” Richardson (born August 14, 1965) is an American fashion photographer.

Richardson was born in New York City, the son of Bob Richardson, a fashion photographer who struggled with schizophrenia and drug abuse. Richardson was raised in Hollywood, a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, where he attended Hollywood High School; and Ojai, California, where he attended Nordhoff High School. He was shy as a teenager and at some times deemed “completely lacking in social skills”. He played bass guitar in the punk rock band The Invisible Government for five years.

Richardson began photography when the band broke up and his mother introduced him to Tony Kent, a photographer who hired him as an assistant. There are several repeating themes in Richardson’s work, notably that of putting high-profile celebrities in mundane situations and photographing them using traditionally pedestrian methods, such as the use of an instant camera.

His work also explores ideas of sexuality, with many of the pieces featured in his books Kibosh and Terryworld depicting full-frontal nudity and both simulated and unsimulated sexual acts. Initially, many of Richardson’s subjects would be shot before a white background but in recent years he has expanded to other backdrops. He is also well known for posing with his subjects, often trading his trademark glasses with them so they may “pretend to be him” and vice versa.

Richardson has shot campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Aldo, Supreme, Tom Ford, and Yves Saint Laurent among others.

He has also done various magazine editorials for publications such as Rolling Stone,GQ, Vogue, Vanity Fair, i-D, and Vice.

Richardson has produced several campaigns for Diesel, including the ‘Global Warming Ready’ which won a Silver Lion for Print at Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival in 2007. Throughout the years he has also produced several private portraits for the company’s founder, Renzo Rosso.

In September 2011, they hosted a mutual book launch together with fashion editor Carine Roitfeld, at Colette in Paris.

In 2012 Richardson embarked on his first solo exhibition at Los Angeles’s OHWOW Gallery.

Blake Cover Boy: Simon Dexter

14.SD #10057

1/ Model, blogger, actor, business man…who are you Simon Dexter?

 I am a force of nature! hahaha…i am a guy who loves life, sex, people, opportunity and following my dreams. I feel like I learned early in life that if you want something you have to either take it or do it because no one is simply going to give it to you. I have a personal philosophy based on a quote, “whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right”

 2/ What’s your background?

I am polish and from humble upbringings. I grew up in a small town and am a small town boy but with a big city mind. My grandfather was a tailor, one of my uncles was a watch smith, both my parents are artists and skilled craftsmen, some of my uncles owned horses, some had cows and chickens, some had crop farms, my grandparents had chickens….we are a traditional European family so to speak. I grew up playing a lot of sports, soccer, wrestling, martial arts…i loved getting dirty and into trouble, climbing trees and finding hidden places in my environment. I had a scholarship to play soccer in college as well so sports had a huge influence in my life and its what still drives me to stay fit.

 3/ Of course, a lots of people knows you did some adult movies in the past…Do you think it can be an obstacle for your present career?

Maybe a small obstacle, but not one that I will let affect me. I think as I venture away from adult work and become successful in mainstream media, some people may look down upon my past. However,  I feel like these are very simple minded people. I am not ashamed of what i have done. I did what I did and I liked it at the time. In Europe sex is seem as more casual and is very accepted. People who have done adult film or photos do not get as much resistance in their professional lives because of it. In America, the culture is still very opposed to “adult actors”. There exists a stigma that these people are less human and more dirty then others who have not done adult work. Yet these same people who call pornography dirty are the same people who consume it late at night from the comfort of their own homes. America is a place of two faces, public and private….and they are very very different and contradictory. But understanding this I feel I have an advantage over others because I will never allow their opinions of me to hold me back from achieving anything I want.

4/ Aren’t you sick of being recognize for what you did in the past and not for what you are doing now?
Yes, but i understand it. I wish people would get to know me better instead of just seeing me as one thing, an adult actor. I have much more to offer the world.

5/ You have an impressive body. What is your secret for looking so good?

Hard work!!! I think that’s true in any aspect of life. The harder you work and the more effort you give the better the results. I have been exercising since 13. But I do not use supplements, I am all natural. This actually has resulted in me growing at a slower rate then other fitness models who may use supplements to enhance the speed of their growth. But I believe in a slow and steady progression that’s sustainable and which allows me the flexibility to eat what I want and pace my routines.>

 6/ Do you made a special diet?

No!!! haha, i like to eat fruits and vegetables but i also eat a lot of everything…sweets, meat, pasta, and I drink a lot of coffee!!

7/ Are you a total exhibitionist?

haha, i think that some days i am and some days I am not. When i feel good and everything is going well then i feel more comfortable with myself and am ok with showing off more. When things aren’t as good then i tend to be more reserved. But i think many people are this way. I just have a lot of confidence in myself.
8/ Do you put a lot of care in the way you look?

I’m kind of a guys guy. Some days I just throw some jeans on, a white  V neck t-shirt and I’m out the door. But if i know i have something important to go to, like a date, photo shoot, meeting or an event, then i try much harder and get my hair done, get new clothes, and groom better.

9/ Are you obsessed by the research of the perfect body?

Yes, i think about training a lot. But more subconsciously as a byproduct of my athletics past. I think about it in my sleep and then test out my theories at the gym. After so many years working out I know what works for me and what doesn’t. But I still am open to learn from others what works for them and experiment with my routines.

10/Do you think to be a model increase your personal seduction?

Oh yes, great photos and the label of “model” intrigue people and inspire imagery of glamour and high class lifestlye. This allure lends itself to my charm and powers of seduction 😉

 11/Are you single?

Yes! Anyone interested???

12/You work with a lot of great photographers.You never did any big advertiser campaign yet. Is there any brands you would want to work with above all?

Yes, I would love to work with Burbery London, Luis Vuiton, and Tom Ford. They have great mens fashion.

13/How do you react to overzealous fans?

Its difficult as anyone who has experienced this may tell you. The energy always seems false and ingenuine and I try to ignore it or redirect it. I just want to be shown the same respect anyone would want for them selves, nothing more, nothing less.

14/Is Fame an “advantage or an “inconvenient”? 

Its a double edged sword. It has its advantages in terms of accessing closed doors in industry and eprsonal life, but also can intrude into personal life and create akward situations.

15/Is being Famous important?

Not as much as being successful. Some people are very famous and are not doing very well at all. I would rather be annonamous and be wealthy and happy and live in parts of the world that have beauty and wonderfull people!

16/What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to read and learn about history and the world, I love to meditate and try to understand the universe and its vastness, I like to dwell about human nature and temperment, and I love to seduce people 🙂

17/What are your plans for the futur?

A calendar, a personal website, an underwear fashion label, a magazine, a movie…..the possibilities are limiteless!
