Hello! My name is Ricky Taylor and I am a professional freelance photographer based in Minneapolis. i first picked up a camera in college and haven't put it down since. I started off, and specialize, in event photography shooting concerts headlined by Hippo Campus, Marshmello, Brass Tracks and local bands from the area. I cultivated an understanding of shooting in available low-light and then worked on utilizing studio and portrait lighting. Since my start I've worked at weddings, on food shoots, product photography, head shots, portraiture and just about any other kind of photo shoot you can think of! I've been professionally shooting for the last 5 years in every photo arena you can come up with.
Every day is new, every challenge exciting, every story interesting; there is just something about photography that captivates me. I've found no better feeling then looking down at the screen and seeing that I've captured something magnificent.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done just about every kind of shoot. By my motto is always, "what can I capture that only I can capture? Where are there not cameras right now?" It's no secret that in our day and age everyone is a psuedo-photographer. I capture the moments that you expect depending on the photoshoot but then I try and find things that people wouldn't thik of. If that means fighting my way through a crowd of people to get a photo of an artist because there are no other photographer's doing it? That's where I go. If that means wandering away from the main event to see waht's happening elsewhere, that's where I go. I try to find myself places where I'm the only one with a camera because that's where the special moments are.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I am a published photographer in both print and digital.
