Rick retired after teaching for thirty-one years. Since then he’s traveled to every continent, and he has the pictures to prove it.
Rick first picked-up a point-and-shoot in early 2013. His early work used this camera. In March, 2014, he purchased his first basic DSLR, then later added several specialty lenses. He uses Lightroom and Photoshop to process the photos.
Although many of his photographs are landscapes, he loves capturing the small and unique as well as the large. He enjoys showing his work. Three photos recently were presented in the annual Montgomery Photo Exhibition, while others have been exhibited at Mapleknoll and Christ Church Cathedral. “After the Storm” recently received Honorable Mention at the Middletown Arts Center Photography Exhibition. He has won “Picture of the Day” dozens of times at the specialty website capturecincinnati.com.
