“Freeway” Ricky Ross

I never thought I’d photograph a former drug kingpin, let alone one the brought in $2+ million a day. And then I did. And then I had another 15 minute session with “Freeway” Ricky Ross again in Long Beach. It’s fun rephotographing people. Each time you photograph a person you furthered develop a relationship with them. It’s sort of like building a friendship.

Rick was doing an interview at a local park. It was a cloudy, overcast day aka giant-softbox-in-the-sky kind of weather. I clipped up an American flag I had in the car and snapped some shot right after he finished his q&a session.
