Rick Jones - HORRIFY ME
HORRIFY ME Award winning horror photography have unleashed their own range of horror apparel EXCLUSIVE to Flesh'n'Metal. A collection of gruesome blood soaked designs from the award winning photographer Rick Jones of HORRIFY ME.
After studying fine art and design, Rick began a creative career that has spanned his entire working life. Working primarily in graphic design and commercial graphics production for vehicle graphics and advertising hoardings, he has also had plenty of experience working with book authors, magazine editors, and ad agencies. Rick has also been a hardcore fan of horror since childhood. A chance opportunity came to him back in 2013 to create a book cover for an author (something he had done many times before), but this book was a horror novel. Writer Lisa Richardson's hugely successful BLOG OF THE DEAD series of books needed covers and Rick was known as "that design guy who loves horror". This was the first time his professional creative skills met his passion for horror and almost by accident, HORRIFY ME was born! Since then, HORRIFY ME has grown into an unusual success thanks mainly to Rick's pure love for the work he does and his lifetime of creative working experience and horror knowledge. His photographs have won many awards and accolades, including the National Photography Award, the ScareTour SCAR Award, and the Alt Fashion Photographer of the Year Award. The macabre horror photos he creates have been published all over the world in numerous magazines, appeared on many book covers, been used to promote scare attractions, and even appeared in national press. Rick's work is followed online by genuine luminaries of the horror craft including Tom Savini, Clive Barker, and Tom Holland, but what makes him even more proud is the fact that many young students follow and study his work as a source of inspiration and learning. There are no educational course that teach you horror photography - Rick's groundbreaking work has come through tireless trial and error, and he has developed some unorthodox techniques in the photography studio which result in his unique style.
