These shots by Los Angeles-based fashion photographer Joseph Tran are beyond sexy. He has the innate ability to make his models look absolutely gorgeous, while maintaining a high level of sophistication in his work.

"It speaks volumes when you can bring out sides of your subject that most other photographers can't and won't even think about," he says speaking of Richardson's work.

"It's a busy year ahead, and i hope to continue to grow and learn,” adds Tran. “My philosophy is that no matter how long you've been in the business, the minute you stop learning and evolving, it's the moment you cease to grow and become stale."
