Rick's passion for the outdoors started in his early years, when he
hunted and fished with his father. Unlike some photographers who visit
game farms for opportunities, Rick prefers working with his subjects in
their natural environment, portraying the animals doing what they do
naturally - surviving. Whether he's photographing in the quiet refuge on
his own property in Central Nebraska or traveling to Antarctica in
search of the wild and exotic, Rick's sense of respect for animals shines
through his art.
Some of Rick's photo credits include: Grand Prize winner in Wyoming
Wildlife Magizine, Highly Honored Winner in Natures Best
Magazine's International Awards Competition, Best Of Show at
Grand Island's Art in the Park and Best Of Show at Stuhr Museum's
Wings Over The Platte Competition, to name a few. Rick has also been
published in several books and has many images in advetising campaigns.
