South Carolina

Rick Dandridge

I am a lifelong resident of the South Carolina Lowcountry and am a member of the Carolina Nature Photographers, Assoc. This area's environment provides a rich resource for nature photography, as well as historical material. As wonderful as this is, my wife and I also enjoy exploring the many facets of God's handiwork. Our travels include much of the great American West, the United Kingdom, as well as other varied locations.

As a former watercolor/oils artist, I found painting from photos I had taken allowed me to do my painting in my home studio, regardless of weather conditions. As my photography progressed, I found myself enjoying it more and more. Photography presented me with a new and exciting medium of expression. No longer was it merely a tool, it had become an art form in itself.
