Ransom Rockwood is a cocky, assertive, sometimes obnoxious photographer who knows what he wants and how to get it. What he wants is ridiculously curvy women stuffed into supertight outfits, or partly stuffed but bulging out here and there, or barely covered by some scrap of fabric he had laying around, or — screw the covering — naked and loving it. He does not care to shoot bony women. He doesn’t know the meaning of subtlety. Less is not more, less is less, and frankly, less sucks. Sure, he has the chops to do fashion photography but is only interested in the sexy stuff. We’ve known him for awhile (he has contributed to Playboy a couple of times) and we’ve always been awed by his images.
Back to the “cocky” label, which we know he embraces — as Dizzy Dean said, “It ain’t braggin’ if you can do it.”
But here’s the thing — you know the Twitter, where people dash off their silly thoughts at 140 characters at a clip? Ransom Rockwood (known as RhoPhotos) has taken it to another level. The dude is sitting on a stack of some of the most in-your-face glamour photography you’ll ever see, and he’s not being stingy with it. On Tuesdays and Thursdays — #tittytuesday and #thongthursday to those of us in the know — he sends out picture after picture of his mostly-naked subjects. His Mobypicture album is an impressive collection of nipples and buttcheeks, testament to a man secure in his camera skills and his unwavering, uncompromising taste.
You may like that taste, or you may not. He doesn’t care.
Hello, it’s Thursday. Or #thongthursday. Follow @rhophotos for wedgies galore.
