Richard has several passions in his life, but photography has been the most consistent. His interest in photography started in 1972, 8th grade. He studied photojournalism and black & white photography in high school. He studied fine art photography in college and worked for a photo studio where he started
developing multi exposure techniques with medium format cameras. After several years, life required Richard to put his photo career on hold. Now circumstances have allowed him to pursue his creative passion by advancing multi exposure techniques.
He has shown in multiple galleries in the greater Kansas City region and won awards for his work. Richard’s current work is done with a 1966 Rolleiflex SL66 medium format film camera. His images are created
in-camera by layering multiple images on one negative using double exposures. The typical images are 10 to 12 shots done in succession. Each image is unique and cannot be duplicated. He not only gets new images with layering, but also new colors from the mixing of the images as well. Richard does not use
Photoshop effects, but he does change the contrast and light/dark intensities. The transition from shooting objectively to creatively, has allowed Richard to explore unlimited personal creative expressions. His work brings him great joy and he hopes these images speak to you.
