Steve “The Machine” Ricardo and Prestige Guitars

At the end of 2019 I was called by Bonnie Scott guitarist, Steve Ricardo, about doing a photoshoot for his new endorsement deal with Prestige Guitars out of North Vancouver.  I was honored to get the nod for this shoot as Prestige has some amazing artist listed in their camp such as Todd Kearns, Devin Townsend, Eric Bass and Cory Churko to mention a few.  Steve was looking for shots both for his social media and also for Prestige’s site/catalog.  The first thing was to figure out where to do the shoot.  Having been over to Steve’s house you would understand why I chose there as it has some really visually cool and funky things that we could utilize in the shoot.  I wanted to use elements that would create the mood of who the artist is and not just be a plain stock shot.  We did a couple of different concepts, the first being in the living room with an oversized leather chair.  The second was just at the dining room table using a couple of props along with the Prestige DC guitar.
