One thing I hate in photography is when someone makes the remark that someone is not a Professional photographer, “Just” an Amateur!  I’m a nice guy so I never correct them, but it bothers me all the same.  A Professional is someone that does something for money, and Amateur does something for the love of it!  It is not a definition of the quality of the work!  Quite honestly I’m now an amateur, I do it just for the love of it!


Some of the best photographers I know are serious, committed amateurs.  Rick Coleman is one of those photographers as is Jim Begley and Jim Haverstock, featured last week, all are shooters that have mastered the craft well and their work proves it!


Rick is a very talented photographer with a great eye and wonderful technical skills to boot!  Here are some of his images!



I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do, Rick is also a great guy!
