About Me - RichardHectorPhotography

While many photographers are drawn to the creative elements of the craft, my initial fascination was with gadgetry — lenses to lights—I love all the gear!


I'll always have an affinity for cool tech toys, however, my photography passion is fueled by all facets of 'people photography'. I especially enjoy talking to strangers to learn what we inevitably have in common.


> I run for fun (and medals and t-shirts): four marathons, several half marathons.  I'm learning that my age is inversely proportional to the distance my joints are willing to endure.


> The 4-wheeled love of my life is 'Liesl'  my 1960 VW Beetle


> There is a growing list of movies I've never seen: Star Wars, ET, Harry Potter, Frozen...


> Music by The Dave Matthews Band or Michael Jackson makes the world a better place



As a dedicated student of the craft, I am inspired by the incredible work of the following photographers and teachers (partial list).
