A Photographers Journal

Richard Chase is far and away the best portrait photographer I've worked with. In addition to his technical expertise, what makes Richard so good is his ability to empathize with his subjects.

This is superbly illustrated in his blog, “A Photographer’s Journal”. Some of the images are beautiful. Some are disturbing. All of them express his appreciation for the human form.

But it’s his visual/written portraits that will captivate you. Richard is also a skilled writer. His honest and sensitive descriptions reveal as much about his models as his photos do -- and a great deal about Richard as well. I particularly like his portraits of Hannah and Dan.
