Rick 3I have been shooting photos for 35 plus years, almost forever… Because of the processing time and high cost of film and prints, my first 35mm camera, a Yashica FX-3, ended up spending most of its life in the living room closet, only to come out for “special” events.

With the advent of DSLR I am as free as can be, and can take as many photographs as my SD-Memory cards can hold. I can also post-process my images to my liking and style. This allows for a creative input that could have never been done by me 35 years ago!

I enrolled at the Art Institute of Phoenix, and started October 2012. I graduated photography December 2013 and Graphic Design Associates Degree program October 2015. I am currently working as an Art Director in the Phoenix area.
