BEHIND THE LENS:
Hi my name is Rick, owner and photographer of Rick's Pict's, and I love photography. What began as an avid interest has since become my passion. I love to capture the natural world, from the smallest of nature's gifts to the most magnificent, like the awe-inspiring Tetons of Jackson Hole, the unique phenomena and beauty of Yellowstone, and the endless, gorgeous skies of Wyoming. From the impressive bison to the tiniest wildflower, I will produce the most superb photo art. Capturing life-like portraits and pictures is a significant source of joy for me.
I am also fascinated with the process of portraying the people out west, from the wide-eyed wonder of youth to the weathered, wise and time-worn faces of the aged. In essence, YOU are my focus! I love the challenge of creating a casual image of you that is natural and candid, yet I also find rewarding the skillful and innovative use of props and backgrounds to enhance your posed portrait. Check out the rest of my website for examples of my work. I think you will agree my portfolio is nothing short of amazing. The remarkable color is rich and vibrant, and the quality is unsurpassed.
I produce award-winning photographs, and enter my work in competitions around the world!
Photography is a dynamic art form. Through the medium of photography, our traditions become treasures to behold; I communicate visually and with genuine fidelity; I can virtually stop time! In this age of the digital computer, a photograph can literally be transformed into an oil painting with the appearance of brush strokes, or into the transparent quality of watercolor. The image can look exactly like a pen or pencil sketch, or be printed on photo paper or canvas. The wide range of choices is intriguing to be sure.
A portrait, beautifully matted and framed, is a joy now and also a preserved memory for posterity. A 20" x 30" is the perfect size to display over your fireplace mantel, above your sofa or among the staircase gallery.
I would love to meet you and your family, including your pets, and discuss a way of putting YOU in the picture. Reach out to me, and let's begin your journey together to create your portrait. My prices are competitive, and I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee ~ always! Creating a portrait that is a work of art, and an heirloom is an artistic process that requires a little time and some work. I meet each client a day or two before the photo shoot and go over what to expect the day of the shoot as well as some of the finer details, including what to wear, makeup and hairstyle, locations of the shoot outside of the studio.
