Looking for a lead, associate or 2nd shooter?

Meet Richard

Hi, I am Richard! I am a full-time photographer since 2010. 

I started photography back when the medium was film and transitioned to digital photography with a Canon Rebel DSLR. I used to shoot motorsports since I love cars and the camaraderie that goes with it. 

I also did fashion and product photography in DTLA before I pursued wedding. 

Why wedding?

It  started with a friend who asked me to cover her wedding. The experience makes me realize that photographing people is more rewarding compared to taking pictures of cars or static products. Aside from that, I can also get to meet and interact with a lot of people, learn about their culture and get to visit awesome places. I can say that after shooting more than 500 weddings, I am still enjoying my job and I am always excited to be a part of the most memorable day of their lives.

Why me? 

I have the knowledge and skills to perform the job. The completion of my education in Photography did not stop me from learning new things about my craft. My photography business is my bread and butter that is why, I continously invest time and money to further enhance my knowledge and skills with photography.

Aside from shooting as a lead photographer, I also 2nd shoot with numerous photographers & studios. I always make it a point to provide them with good and worthy shots. To ensure this, I  take pictures in different angles and I am making sure that I am not getting in their way. I also help them carry their bags or light stands. I am easy to get along with and a team player who respect your business.

I am looking forward to work with you and be friends.
