Raw Milk on Location, Chicago  Art Director, Locations, Photography, and Post-Processing: Nicky Watts. Lighting, Rich Castro    I quit marketing myself as a photographer in 2009 because I wasn’t satisfied with my camera and my conceptual art was gaining attention. I trusted my intuition and let it lead me, much like I am right now in my new transition.
