When Rick was 14 years old, he found his dad’s old 35mm camera and, with his father’s help, built a darkroom in the basement. Drawn to the action of 1960’s New York City, Rick spent most of his days shooting and developing photos. Though he might not have predicted it at the time, in retrospect it makes clear sense that for the rest of his life, he would have a camera by his side. He loved photography. He still does.
Rick went on to study photography at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, making a commitment to becoming a professional photographer, a commitment still honored to this day.
Rick was the photographer for The New York Law Journal for 14 years. He now works as a photographer for The University of Arizona in Tucson.
Over the years, his work has appeared in all of New York's daily newspapers in addition to many national magazines
