Rick Tardiff

Rick is a New England based photographer. After a stint in the US Navy, he attended classes at the University of Maine before moving to Scotland where he became involved in the Cranhill Arts Program in Glasgow.

As a member of the National Union of Journalist, he worked as a freelance photographer through much of the 1990’s, supplementing his income with part time work in social services. Rick attended classes at the Glasgow School of Art, and Clydebank College where he completed his HNC in media skills in the community. Returning to the United States, he graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2011.

"My goals are to render the everyday, the ordinary, in simple and direct compositions, an unpretentious approach to reality." I read that somewhere, not in those exact words but it applies to my approach today."
