Rick Schwartz is a prolific photographer of landscapes, beaches, sunsets, urban settings and pretty much whatever else catches his eye.
Rick lives in Florida and as a result is constantly presented with an abundance of subjects to pursue his passion. However, he travels from time to time and can always be found with one or more cameras in tow. Rick is particularly drawn to low light settings that occur in the fleeting minutes of dawn and dusk where the mood can be completely transformed from the stark light of day.
Quite often Rick will post processes his photos. He uses a range of tools and techniques that allow him to create and express the images in his mind’s eye. He is less concerned about the equipment, rather the thoughts, moods and longings produced in his images. Rick’s art is meant to produce an emotional longing in the heart of the viewer. He believes that our existence is much more than what we see with our eyes and sometimes we can use images to help us look beyond the mundane. It is Rick’s hope that just enough focus with just enough perspective will help remind us of something that, while elusive, is around us always.
Rick recently wrote an article about himself, so if you want to know a little more about how he got into photography and what motivates him, hop on over to here. He is always writing light hearted prose about his photos, bringing the viewer into his world regarding what he was thinking at the time or what the image reminds him of.
