Rick Belden Photography
Professional Photography for Life's most Memorable Moments
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 : firstname.lastname@example.org 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 unlikely chance I'm not 100% 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!
