Jim Riche Photography

About the Photographer

After graduating from R.I.T. with a degree in Photography as a Fine Art I moved to Washington DC and began a career as a freelance photographer. I was a part time teaching assistant at the Corcoran College of Art & Design. Soon thereafter I was invited to be a Director of Photography on a stop motion film. This led to a 40 year career in the film/visual effects business.

Recently I was an Executive Producer with many of the best VFX shops in the country, Digital Domain, Blur, Ntropic, Reel FX and others. For the last 6 years I have been developing my  photography once again and I'm now devoting all my time to Fine Art Photography.

My wife Melissa Riche and I recently had our book published; “Mod Mirage- Mid Century Architecture of Rancho Mirage”. I did all the contemporary photography and Melissa was the writer, researcher, PR agent!

My interest in photography as a design tool has led to many shows, awards and assignments. My work is about design, composition, abstract shapes and space. I have traveled from Patagonia to Los Angeles, Barcelona, Valencia, New York and many other places. I currently live in Little Coxwell in the rolling hills of Oxfordshire England.

I recently lived in the Palm Springs area and developed an interest in the Salton Sea. I have a gallery of photographs  which depict a part of the world that has  been forgotten by man and where man is overwhelmed by nature. This series has been published and won numerous International awards.
