Rick is an AWESOME photographer and an even better person! He’s extremely professional, genuinely loves to teach, and knows the ins & outs of photography, lighting, posing, etc. you name it! Never a dull moment on set with this guy, HIGHLY recommend booking a shoot with him if you’re looking to build your portfolio or just need a good laugh. Always a pleasure!!
Cearra - Professional Model
100% recommended! I was nervous because I'm terrible in photos and absolutely not photogenic at all, but Rick guided me through everything and made it simple, easy, and fun. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
~Korynn - Corporate Portraits
This was one of the best experiences I ever had. I have never experienced a photo shoot before and Rick was super patient and helpful. I felt comfortable during the shoot and learned a TON! The pictures came out even better than what I imagined and were finished with all of the edits in no time. If you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and insanely talented photographer, Rick Belden Photography is it. I would rate 100 on a scale of 1-10 and will be my main source for any future photo shoots.
~Rayanne - Fitness Competitor
As a growing artist still developing my trade and look, I knew from early on that I needed to work with people who could help me grow and were professionals themselves. I've worked with Rick for a few years in several industries, and in my professional and sincere opinion, Rick Belden is one of the most talented and artistic photographers I've ever worked with. His eye for detail shows in his ability to only shoot what he needs and wants. Working with him is a breeze, and beautiful quality is inevitable.
~Tiffany - Fitness Model
Excellent photographer. Knows what he's doing with very in-depth knowledge on what it takes to get impressive shots. Is very clear on communication and doesn't waste anybody's time. I've worked with him twice as a new model and once as an assistant for one of his other shoots. All experiences have been great!
~Savanah - Pilot/ New Model
Rick Belden Photography is top notch! He literally had pictures from my horse show posted the next day! That's unheard of! They are beautiful high end quality pictures at a great price! He was so quick to respond to what I wanted and extremely friendly! I would highly recommend him!
~Annie - Equestrian
Besides Rick obviously having a great eye for a plethora of different styles, he also knows how to tailor each shoot to your individual needs, comfort, and style. I've shot with him on location and in the studio and am so excited to see what he creates each time! I've already recommended him to friends and family and will continue doing so
~Micah - Singer Song Writer
Rick and I worked together on a bodyscape shoot, and the images we created were absolutely breathtaking! More, Rick's studio is beautiful, and he coached me, provided feedback, and made sure I was comfortable throughout the shoot, being that I am a new model. If you're looking to work with a communicative, professional, highly-skilled and knowledgeable photographer, I would 100% recommend Rick! I would work with him again in an instant!
~Stephanie - Bodyscape
Amazing experience. Rick makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. I love how my pictures turned out and I would refer him to anyone! It was just a lot of fun.
~Tiffany - Fitness

~Holly - Pilot and Equestrian
Rick is amazing! He has great talent working with people and his photos do the talking. They are rich full and gorgeous. The best around. I highly recommend him to everyone!!!
~Erica - Wedding and New Born
If you are interested in photography and how you camera works and how to create great photos you need to take his class. He is an amazing teacher and you will learn an amazing amount. He has such a passion for this and it comes out in his teaching and the only thing you will do from this class is benefit and learn. Highly recommend looking into his classes.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much experience do you have? I have over 20 years of very diverse experience photographing everything from Landscapes and Architecture to Liquid Art and Products to Weddings, Newborns and Professional Athletes.
What got you into photography? Photography has always been my passion and stress relief. I really enjoy the creative process and love working with individuals and companies who like to create unique and memorable images.
Tell me about your family. I have a beautiful wife who is very supportive of my work and two incredible young Daughters who I love more than anything in this world! All of the girls in my life really inspire me during the creative process.
How do you describe your style? Although I work in many different genres, my work is probably best described as photo journalistic. I am very easy to work with and communicate well with all of my subjects and models. Every photographer has their own style they naturally gravitate to, but those that are really experienced can adapt to multiple different styles.
Where else can I see your work? I have been published in several national print magazines, online sites, news papers, Billboards, TV news and advertising campaigns. I have won the coveted City Block Project twice shooting for the Charlotte Historical Society and currently working with numerous Equestrian and Racing organizations.
What is your Philosophy? My Philosophy is quite simply this...the customer must be 100% happy with the end result or I have failed. Anyone can snap a picture, however to create an image that inspires is the real goal of a true Professional.
Why should someone hire you specifically? In this day and age it seems that everyone who owns a camera is refereed to as a Photographer. I know it can be very confusing to the consumers, so I will be clear on my thoughts here. There are people out there who snap pictures and then those of us that create images. I am passionate about producing images that you would be very proud to show your friends and family members and will be handed down for generations. If you are looking for someone who is experienced, diverse, creative, easy to work with and passionate then I feel as though I'm a good choice for most people.
How do I book a session? Simply send me an email with your contact information to : email@example.com and I will send you back a quick questionnaire and Fee Schedule so we can determine the best way to make it a great relationship.
In the extremely unlikely chance I'm not totally happy with my images what happens? I offer a 100% guarantee and I stand by that, no gimmicks here. If you are not 100% happy with the images we either re-shoot until you are, or there is no charge. Period!
