I'm a journeyman photographer. I have a deep enjoyment of artistry, but have developed photography as a craft. I use it to document the life and environment that surrounds me and to express my thoughts and ideas. I have been photographing for over 5 decades and would still be as comfortable in a darkroom as I am now in the digital realm.

Photographs have always been important in my life...they have taken me to places I've never been...introduced me to people I've never met...taught me lessons I would otherwise never have learned. They make me laugh and they make me think. For many, many years being a photographer has done the same things.

    "Every time I need a break from reality and the city life, I escape to Rick’s world. So tranquil /restful /soothing. Your definition of colour and detail makes your pictures a joy to view. I will always come back for more magical scenes"
