Rick works with Cowboys and Indians around the country photographing their everyday lives and setting up scenarios of days gone by. Notes are made. Thoughts for post work are jotted down, colors and textures for backgrounds are considered.
In the post production process, Rick works closely with high end digital artists they discusss each image to be worked on as thoughts and ideas are bounced off each other.
Pulling inspiration from traditional printmaking, painting and wet plate photography, the digital artists leverage their professional experience to bring Rick’s vision for his western artwork to its final state.
The next step in the process is the print making. Esattezza Arte® (ay-zaht-tay-tzah art) is a proprietary capture, work flow and printing process. Museum-quality, archival limited edition prints with unrivaled accuracy, detail, color fidelity, and permanence are the end product.
