About Rick

I am a cinematographer with extensive experience in lighting for film and video. I have been the director of photography for countless high-end corporate films, docudramas, and long-form fiction.

Currently I teach part-time at the Academy of Art University, both on-site and on-line. I have recently written two on-line lighting classes (one for undergraduates and one for MFA students) for the University. For all of these lighting classes I help students discover the basics and then nurture them as they gradually become more and more able to see the play of light, shadow, and color.

Students working with me will need to provide their own camera and lighting equipment. We can work together either online, or on site, or a combination of both. My fee covers my time portal to portal.

I look forward to helping you to discover how you can make your images strongly support the stories you want to tell in the amazing medium of film or video.
