Ric sees the world in pictures. From sunsets and stunning landscapes to architecture, product photos and people at work or play, Ric has the talent to tell a story without saying a word. He speaks through the images he creates, whether for business or pleasure.

By his final year of school, he was processing and printing all the pictures for the yearbook.From there, Ric spent three years studying photography in college, graduating with honors and receiving a few notable awards. After college he spent nearly three years working for Canada’s 40th largest advertising agency before leaving to start his own commercial photography business.His business eventually led to incorporating computers as a tool for web design, digital imaging, computer graphics and digital video. His computer work has expanded to include designing flyers, ads, newsletters, and annual reports. In addition, Ric has published a printed book, as well as four ebooks. And he has used his design ability to create two lucky coins and three lapel pins, which he markets online and ships worldwide.
