What do you call an artist who never flies; has used his camera gear to meet thousands of people all over the United States and has a truck turning 400,000 miles? You call him Rick Gerrity!
I started this series to introduce you to some of the most respected photographers in our industry, and if you've taken one of Rick's workshops/classes, then you already have experienced his unstoppable passion. What I enjoy the most though is his love for photography combined with relationship building with every subject he meets, literally along life's highway!
I think of Rick as the ultimate street photographer - he's never without a LUMIX camera, and everyone he photographs becomes a part of his family and he a part of theirs.
Check out Rick's website with a click on the image above. And, wander over to the LUMIX Lounge and meet the rest of Panasonic's Luminary team. They're an amazing group of artists and educators all with a common denominator - their love for imaging!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
