Rochester Institute of Technology College of Imaging Arts
About Jim Riche
I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1974 with a BFA in Photography as a Fine Art. Immediately upon graduation moved to Washington, DC and became a teaching assistant at the acclaimed Corcoran College of Art + Design. That led to a career in DC as a freelance commercial photographer. I was offered a job to be a Director of Photography on a clay animated feature film, from there it led to a career in the Animation and Visual effects business. Now I have left that business and returned to the photography I was trained for.
A passion for Architecture has led to a series of black and white images highlighting the architecture of Palm Springs and the many diverse structures around the world. A new series on the Los Angeles downtown area has brought acclaim and being featured in a show in the fall of 2015. These images center around the Disney Concert Hall and the financial district of Los Angeles.
