For over 30 years, Richard has been making fine art prints for photographers who sell their work in galleries. He works to understand his clients intentions about each image and how the print should look before he begins the process of testing. He accomplishes this through carefully asking questions, listening and asking follow up questions until he feels he understands the vision of his client. His uses his knowledge of photography, print making, lighting and a collaborative working style to successfully print for photographers such as Steve McCurry, Tom Mangelsen, Jack Dykinga, Michael “Nick” Nichols, Jeff Wall, Flip Nicklin, Steve Winter, David Doublet, Howard Schatz, Annie Griffiths, Ami Vitale, Tom Till and many others including museums such as the Smithsonian. “Spectacular” and “Stunning” are the words used by photographers to describe the prints Richard makes for them. “The first time I met Richard, he spent the first 30 minutes asking me questions about my artistic intent before we ever discussed a particular image. No other printer has ever tried to get into my head in that way to understand my vision.” -- Stephen Wilkes “Richard makes the prints of my images come alive. They have a three dimensional feel that I have never before seen when others have tried printing my work.” --Evan Schiller “Richard has taken my work to a whole new level. I thought I knew what was possible until I worked with Richard.” -- Jeffrey Becom “Working with Richard was the first time I felt like I had control of how my prints would look.” -- Tom Till Richard will help you “see” your image as a finished print in your minds eye so you will be able to choose the right Photoshop tools in the right sequence to achieve your vision. He will talk you through a process of deconstruction and reconstruction of your image to help you see it in a whole new way. With practice, this process will assist you in making prints that will take your work to a whole new level. You will finally start to gain the control over printmaking you have always wanted.
“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”– Ansel Adams
