About Me

*** ..........Feb 2, 2013 update.......... ***

I am a Tracy, California-based photographer, and photography instructor at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts here in Tracy... with a long-standing (from 1980) passion for the camera.

New images are being rotated into my portfolio.

I am accepting paid photographic work - portrait, model portfolio, artists, theatrical portraits, bands, commercial sessions on contract work - with reasonable rates for hire, based upon a strong 30-year experience base with the aesthetic and technical aspects of creating effective photography.

For model-involved photography, I appreciate someone possessing the gift of life, with the self-confident passion to express it, and the desire to bring other aspects of their creative background - dance, music, theater/drama, art/photography, etc. - out to convey a mood, to find an inspiration, or explore a concept. I appreciate the gifts of spontaneous improvisation and of imagination in building a collaborative rapport. I like to be inspired, jazzed about the collaboration. If we can't come up with something unique for a portfolio that stands out or stands apart from the rest of the photos, then there's something missing in the rapport...simply adding "just another empty pretty picture" isn't strong reason enough to schedule a photoshoot.

** I am NOT providing paid-modeling work.

** Yes, I'm accepting limited TFCD work where opportunities are worthwhile. I don't have an interest in glamor or studio work, I do have an interest in more 'character" driven imagery, in collaboration with creative and expressive individuals.

** Yes, I am willing to work with beginning models looking to start building a portfolio and experience, on a TF* basis, as schedules and arrangements permit.

** I frequently have models and other creative individuals (musicians, artists, dancers, photographers, actors) in my photo classes for the students to work with, in/around the Grand Theatre ...all public settings in the restored historic building, NO nude work...

From Sasha V (MM #48966)...
..."I like the feel of your photos. They are not just empty shots of pretty girls, like most of the stuff I see on this site. You seem to have a more personal touch and that is what I'm interested in doing with my portfolio."

From Farzad, photographer, in reference to a 2007 workshop/photoshoot...
..."Today I realized how fortunate I am to be around you and other people doing stuff like we did today. You are a very generous person. And you have naturally been encircled by generous models. Thank you again and again, Richard. I am very fortunate to know you."

from Ana Maria...
"Where do I begin?? I have "worked" with Richard on numerous occasions now... and, it's really not "work" at all. Richard has a very open mind and heart and has an amazing gift to be able to capture beauty, whether it be the beauty of nature and natural things, or a deep human emotion. Every photo tells a story, and if you ask nicely, he will tell you the story!"
