About Rick

I am a professional photographer who has been in business for 29 years, and now want to share my love of photography with those of you who want to improve your skills! I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Visual Design, and opened my first studio in Palo Alto in 1985. I landed Apple as my first major client, and have never looked back. I’ve had the privilege to work with many of the world’s best graphic designers, industrial designers, and corporations, including Apple, Nike , Sony, Intel and Ebay, shooting products and people. I’ve photographed in 33 countries around the world, and practice creative problem solving every day. I am proficient in DSLR (I use Nikon), Hasselblad, and Sinar large format (4x5) cameras, as well as professional lighting systems (strobes and LED lighting). My business also includes corporate and music video production, using DSLR and professional Sony video cameras. I’ve used Photoshop since it came out. I received my MFA from San Jose State in 2015 and am currently teaching photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
