Introduction: Hello! I am a photographer and cinematographer based in LA and I would love to work with you on your next project. I have been freelancing as a photographer and cinematographer since 2015, and I have always savored the opportunity to create compelling images that others may cherish and find valuable. I grew up in the Bay Area of California which is where I started making photographs, however it wasn't until film school in Boulder, Colorado that I began exploring motion work. Since graduating with a BFA, I have become proficient at both! When I'm not shooting, I like watching old movies, studying history, and spending time with my wife and my friends.

We're so happy we chose Rick! We always want a professional for our parties and Rick delivered. He's not just a guy holding a camera, Rick takes time to create composition and includes some beautifully retouched photos! We were proud to have Rick there for our guests!

Wow. Just WOW. I hired Rick on a creative video shoot and he exceeded all expectations. Rick is a professional, knowledgeable, and experienced videographer that delivered exactly what we were looking for. He is extremely thorough in his preparations, and made sure to help guide us towards exactly what we wanted. He also turned around our edit quickly & it looked amazing! Truly a dream to work with, our company will surely be hiring him again in the near future. Thank you Rick!!
