As a local artist to California, I have become known as the "Painter of Life." In addition to invisibly capturing every exchange of love, joy, happiness, and hope during your flawless wedding shoot, I have mastered a process with the touch of a 'Virtual Brush' to bring photography to a whole new expression of art and emotion.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!. "Utilizing the most advanced computer graphics software available, Rich "paints" spectacular works of art, beginning with world class photography, resulting in absolutely breathtaking images. The artist's virtual brush acts as a filter which, when applied to a photograph, can create the illusion of a painting. The effects also include watercolor, chalk, pencil, and countless other variations. Rich uses a Sony F828, providing both wide angle and super telephoto qualities in an 8 mega pixel resolution. Every detail is captured and then reproduced in original color, black and white, and sepia tones, in any lighting condition. By digitally manipulating several photographic frames of a subject or scene, Rich is able to capture all available light, and then "layer" each portion in a smooth transition. He creates a "seamless collage". Rich's process, using the virtual brush, far exceeds the limitations of the most advanced, modern camera shutter to bring even more emphasis, clarity, and attention to the subject. He can take a client's existing photo and enhance it as well, creating a spectacular, original image. Rich is able to offer a service few are able to provide. Literally anyone can now have an artist's "painting" of their favorite photo. He is excited to provide his expertise to not only newlyweds and graduates, but also realtors and executives.
