“… I was so fortunate to spend a truly inspiring day with Richard for an individual master class. He generously shared his process of building and lighting dioramas and image-making as well as his influences and evolution in art. I didn’t want to leave!”—Brandy Trigueros

I am pleased to announce that I am offering one day personal master classes at my studio in New York City. The day will offer a rare first hand look into my creative process from developing the concept, to how I build dioramas, my lighting techniques, and post-production—as well as pulling it all together. We can also talk of your own projects and the best-odds strategies for navigating the world of competitions, portfolio reviews, and galleries.
