Juror: Rick Haley
Rick Haley is a contemporary landscape and nature photographer who has refined his craft over the last 45 years. Based in Northern California, near the San Francisco Bay area, Rick has worked as a Photographic Workshop and Darkroom Instructor, specializing in Zone System Photography. As a guest speaker for the Arts and Photographic Department of Solano College, Rick regularly offered advice and support for aspiring artists as they began to navigate their way through the fields of professional, commercial and fine art photography. While exploring the medium of the color print, Rick acted as a Test Consultant for Ciba-Geigy, where he provided test result feedback on the Cibachrome printing process. Rick is best known for his large-format black and white images and his unique creative printing style; however, he is most respected for his broad technical photographic expertise. In the past, Rick’s images have been displayed across the Northern California market including the Dynasty Fine Art Galleries of Union Street in San Francisco and Danville, California. Now retired, Rick continues to enjoy his love for photography as he regularly travels across the West and Southwest regions of the United States in search of landscape images.
