Tennessee Rick Elliott started his photography journey late in life when the former yearbook advisor unexpectedly retired and he inherited the position of yearbook instructor. Taking sports photos for the high school in which he taught became quite the passion for him, and he was blessed to be hired as a sports photographer at Carson Newman University after he retired from teaching.
Shooting action sports planted the seed of passion for portraiture, and he has focused on low-key, film noir style images. Far from being a creative artist, he relies on stealing ideas from other photographers . . . , I mean he “draws creative inspiration from a multitude of sources.” His presentation will feature a little storytelling, a collection of images, and he may even try top sneak in a little useful photography information.
