The Spud Drive-In, operational theatre in Driggs, Idaho.

It's all coming together! This past week has I have made huge steps in getting the book out for my hopeful July release. I found a printer, met with my designer, and I am really close to having the order of the images in the book nailed  down! Now to write the text, which oddly might be the hardest part of this entire venture. Once everything is closer to being sent off to the printers I will announce an official release date, so keep your eyes peeled.

 

Upcoming Shows:

In other news, I am excited to announce my acceptance into a wonderful group show next month. My photograph "Emerging" will be part of LightBox Photographic's PDX 40 show. This exhibit will be featuring work from 40 Portland, Oregon photographers selected by juror Blue Mitchell,  founder of One Twelve Publishing and publisher of Diffusion Magazine. The show opening is Saturday April 11th 6-9pm. If you are in the Pacific Northwest area, take a day trip to the coast in Astoria, Oregon and stop into the gallery!

Hawaii:

Our trip to The Big Island of Hawaii was nothing short of amazing. Best vacation ever! I'm terrible at taking vacation photos so I made being a tourist a bit more interesting with a bag of hands and wigs.

Lindsey Rickert

Portland, OR, United States of America

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
