A third-generation, Chinese-American with California roots dating back to the 1800's railroad building-era, Richard grew up in Southern California. A two week family vacation to the Canadian Rockies when he was six shaped his life forever. His childhood thirst for the outdoors and travel was further fueled by trips to the California Coast, Zion NP, Washington D.C., Gettysburg, and various other destinations. Eventually as a college student in the late 90's, it occured to Richard that it might be fun to take up photography.
Richard has subsequently traveled through most regions of the country, moved around the country a few times, and has been published in magazines, newspapers, brochures, travel guides, textbooks and calendars. He licenses his photography through several rights-managed photo agencies and also through this website in addition to selling fine art prints.
Photography plans for 2008 include: The Northern California Redwood Coast, California Gold Country, Yosemite Valley, Arizona Navajo Nation, and New Mexico (Santa Fe, Taos, and pueblos).
