I'm Rick, a New York City based commercial still life and product photographer.
I obtained my BFA in Studio Arts and Creative Technologies at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 2010 and received my Certificate of Professional Photography from The Hallmark Institute of Photography in 2011. Upon graduating, I immediately began my photography career in New York City.Blending the eye of a fine artist and technically proficient commercial photographer, I have a passion for creating uniquely inspiring and engaging still life images. My photography aesthetic has been described as poetically manicured, creative, and precise.
My curiosity behind the lens has led me to work with a diverse range of advertising and editorial clients. Although the majority of my clients are New York based, I travel and enjoy working with many clients spread across the United States.
I have an extensive knowledge of high end retouching and color correction having worked as a photo retoucher for many years. My work experience also includes an in-depth background in prop and product styling which adds to my love of creating beautiful imagery through form, color, and texture.
Outside of work, I live in Beacon, NY with my partner and two pups. I am a lover of all things plants and gardening. My home is filled with every kind of house plant imaginable. In my spare time I enjoy working with clay in my ceramics studio, antique shopping, and trying out all the breweries across the Hudson Valley.
