About Me


I'm also possibly open to shoot in New Orleans sometime later this month, and Boston/Providence in early December.

Hi! I'm a fine art photographer in Beaumont, Texas (east of Houston). I love working with models of all shapes, ethnicities, gender identities, etc. to create art that captures the human form and the human spirit. My work has been exhibited in a number of galleries, and this year I had my fourth solo gallery exhibition. Most of my work is created either in the studio, in outdoor locations or abandoned buildings, or in my underwater studio here in Beaumont.

Please get in touch if you'd like to shoot! I am limited to trade only (More details...).

Trade for Accommodations
We rent an apartment above our garage through AirBnB, I can block out dates as needed for personal guests, so if you're looking for a host on my side of Texas, let me know!
Here's a link to the listing.

I check messages here, but I'm easier to reach on Facebook or Instagram.

For complex shoots (underwater, body paint, some abandoned locations, etc.), I only work with models I've already worked with before, or with qualified traveling professional models. For other shoots, especially when I travel, I'm always looking for new people to work with.

If I send a friend request, I'd like to work with you. MM has limits on sending messages to non-friends. If you're interested as well, please accept and let me know!

RETOUCHERS: DO NOT CONTACT ME. NOT INTERESTED.

"Inspiring. Gave super detailed instructions for what he wanted, but we also shot some of what I wanted. It is so rare a photographer actually listens to my input, and this meant the world to me! We got a shot I have been trying to get for a very long time, and the entire experience was just lovely. I can't recommend Richard enough!" Read less
