One of my biggest interests, aside from photography, is the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Also known as The Real Silent Hill! It is located about 1.5 hours from my house. I visit it often and really love the area. Long story short, the town has a mine fire that has been burning under it since the 1960's. It is estimated that the fire will continue to burn for centuries to come. For more photos check out my Silent Hill / Centralia Link at the top or bottom of this page.
A little about me:
My name is Rick, I'm 30, and I currently live in West Chester, Chester County, PA. I've been taking photos as far back as I can remember. I've taken Photography classes back in High School, but most of my knowledge has been from real world experience. I am currently obtaining my Bachelors of Photography from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I also work 40 hours a week.
My digital work is shot with a Nikon D2x. Currently I have the following lenses: Tamron 17-55 2.8, 50mm 1.8, 70-300mm 4.5-5.6 VR II, misc filters, DAKINE Sequence backpack, Manfrotto 055X Pro tripod & Manfrotto 486RC2 ball head, Bogen 3231 Monopod, Alienbees B1600 with umbrella and stand, Nikon Speedlight SB-600 flash with diffuser, reflectors. My film work is shot with a Canon AE1 and a multitude of lenses.
I've been published in a wide range of media outlets (CNN, CNN.com, WPVI Channel 6, NBC 10, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Intelligencer, The Record, The Globe, The Daily Local, etc), a couple calendars, a Fire Fighter Training Manual, Quadratec Jeep Essentials catalog and website, among other places digitally and in print.
I have experience with varying types of Photography as you can see from my photos. If you have something specific you'd like that's not related to any type of photos I have posted, just drop me a line and we'll work something out.
I'm currently shooting paid assignments. My rates are reasonable. Please contact me for information. I will accept TFP/TFCD assignments on a limited basis.
