August 18, 2018: It continues to be a busy summer for Nina and I. We have numerous happenings in both our art and photo worlds, plus my family world. More details soon, but in the meantime - click on the "Image of the Moment" above to see what we've been up to most recently.
Continue to travel well my friends! - Ralf
My name is Ralf. I professionally photograph people, places and things and help others do the same.
I'm a photographer of nearly 40 years experience combined with a 30+ year business background in information technology and quality management. My homebase is Huntington Beach, California.
In 2012, I lost Karen to cancer. Karen was my wife, confidant, lover and best friend. We were married for 23 years and we completed each other. We lived life to its fullest during our time together, every year was better than the last. As I've always said, we worked hard and therefore played hard too! We experienced life together and I would do it all over again - even knowing the outcome.
In 2016, I left the hectic corporate world to slow down and help others better see themselves and the world around them based on my experiences in life and photography. I can photograph images for you or show you or your business how to shoot for yourself. My current specialties include product and food photography, headshot portraiture as well as a past collection of fine art photography. I'm currently studying with various mentors to add new disciplines to my toolkit - you'll find a summary of my service offerings here.
So what's ahead? Frankly, I'm not sure, but I like it! Nina and I are helping each other with our art forms. Stay tuned! I'm always learning new skills, so new offerings are in the works. If you've got an idea, let's discuss it - and you certainly don't pay until you get results and are satisfied!
