Insect Photography with Nancy Richmond
I am thrilled that my super duper friend Nancy Richmond has gotten 4 of her insect photographs into the permanent collection in the 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The juried show is titled, ” A Bug’s Life” and opened in Los Angeles on August 17, 2013. She used a Canon EOS 50D and a 100mm macro lens to shoot her insect photos. Here are 2 of her photos. (Check out the link above to see the whole show.)
Nancy and I have been friends for over 25 years. We met at a Kayak Show in Princeton, NJ after we had both just returned from traveling in Costa Rica. It was an instant, life long friendship. We have been traveling together ever since; Nancy with her camera and me with 400 pounds of art supplies! (My supplies have gotten lighter over the years!)
Nancy’s career started as a photo journalist for the Asbury Park Press. In 2012 she got her MFA in Fine Art Photography from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She has experience in shooting every kind of subject imaginable. She shares her unique vision of the world through her amazing photography. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her knowledge of photography is amazing.
In 2001 Nancy started working with me teaching photography on our Artistic Adventure Tours. We have taught in the Galapagos Islands, France and Costa Rica. Both of us are passionate about nature and have found Costa Rica to be one of our favorite destinations.
