My name is Rico & I am a L.A. based freelance Fashion Photographer with over 12 years of experience. My career has taken me to exotic places worldwide & has afforded me the opportunity to work with celebrities, super models, rock stars & presidents alike. I posses a wealth of knowledge and experience which I'd like to pass on to the next generation. Photography has offered me ample opportunities to travel & to explore new places and meet new & exciting people from all walks of life. It has provided a very rewarding career. I welcome the opportunity to share my experiences, knowledge of photography & life experiences with young minds. Photography is not just a job but a key to exciting places & an opportunity to see the world on your terms. It's hard work but it's one the most rewarding fields you can ever hope to be in.
Although I have a degree from a very prestigious university, photography is one of those rare career choices in which a degree isn't necessary. That being said, it's one of the toughest yet most rewarding career choices.
My methods though quite simple are not easy. The student is required to participate fully in all the lesson plans & follow a very precise process which I've developed over years of training & teaching. I welcome all students at whatever level you are at. You will not walk away from my courses and not be a better photographer. If you do the work you will see results!
