Artist, Photographer Richard T. Stephens

Photographer--Portraiture, Portfolio, Scenic, Photojournalism.

Artist--Portrait, Landscape, Almost any subject/medium.

I live in the Nevada desert near Death Valley. I feel that the desert has taught me a particular aesthetic--to find the simple, hidden beauty in things, the beauty most people overlook. There is great joy in using my vision to help others discover the beauty in the world around them or in themselves (through portraiture). I enjoy a creative challenge and am available for commission if the project interests me, and some of the images on my site are available for purchase.
