Rick Rosen has been a photographer for over thirty years. "It's my profession and my artistic passion," he says. "Storytelling wedding photography gives me the opportunity to explore my romantic soul and create wonderful stories for my clients." Mr. Rosen was asked by renowned photographer Ansel Adams to teach at his workshops in Yosemite where, by observing this master, he was also able to refine his own artistic skills. "The thing I cherish most from my years with Ansel," he adds, "was discovering ways to capture beauty as it unfolds rather than trying to control it." Mr. Rosen continues to be called upon to teach and lecture internationally. He has presented hundreds of workshops and seminars to his peers. Rick is the Official Wedding Photography Chat Host on America Online (HOT WPLC RickR@aol.com) and mentors wedding photographers nationally in his weekly sessions.
Mr. Rosen combines all of these experiences to create a very personal style of wedding photojournalism. "The only artistic vision I have ever felt in wedding photography was a storytelling one. I photographed my first journalistic wedding in 1968 because the prevailing approach for creating a series of posed, static portraits never made sense to me when compared to the emotional images that were possible by just observing and letting people be themselves. My vision has stayed true to that passion and I am very fortunate to be able to be recognized for my art and be called upon to photograph internationally."
