Hello, my name is Richie. Photography is not just something I do, it's a passion. I take great pride in everything that I do. My style is very clean. I like to highlight the natural beauty of what I capture. I don't like to apply heavy filters or alter my photos in any damaging way. I'm not a big fan of "HDR" because it often takes things to extremes and blows out the colors. I prefer subtlety. When I photograph, I like to represent the original colors and make adjustments that enhance the moment.
I don't believe in "owning" photos. I believe that anyone should be able to enjoy what I capture and the photos that I shoot are free to be used and even altered as you see fit; I only ask that you do the same and share the photos with everyone else. I believe that the process is what makes a photograph. Everything that leads up to that moment is captured and I can tell a story through my camera. It's like everyone says, a photograph really does say a thousand words.
Beyond my photography, I'd like to consider myself a very dynamic human being. I have many interests and I pursue as many avenues as I possibly can and sometimes more than I can. I tend to be a perfectionist and I strive to do the best possible work I can. I'm always reviewing my work and trying to move forward in life. I try to never take things for granted.
