Ricardo Gomez is a photographer based in New York City who specializes in fashion and portrait photography. In addition to his skills as a photographer, he brings a talent for styling and creative direction to many types and sizes of projects.
Originally from San Francisco, Ricardo came to New York City to pursue his love of photography. Previously, Ricardo had an information technology business for over 15 years helping clients with all of their computer infrastructure needs. While technology is a different art, many of the business, organization and leadership skills he learned have proven to be invaluable in his new venture. Artistic professionals regularly compliment him on these skills.
This is not to say that he had no experience in photography and fashion before he made it a career. Friends and family have always complimented him on the casual photos he’s done – the most frequent compliment being “It looks as though the person who took this image really cared about bringing feeling into it.” With fashion, Ricardo looks back on his years reading through major fashion publications as simple fun. His joy was helping his family and friends with wardrobe for large and special occasions. All his life, in the background, there were always photography and fashion.
Starting a photography career at a later age than your average professional photographer has proven to be a blessing in disguise. Ricardo has lived enough for several people and draws from a deep reservoir of experience to bring a unique perspective and style to his work.
“My work is not just to make people and things pretty. I want to bring a grace and quiet sophistication that makes observers keep looking.” – Ricardo Gomez
