Ric has owned Black & White Specialties from it's inception in 1996. His interest in photography started even before college at Purdue University and became a passion while stationed with the Army in Northern Italy. He pursued careers in sales and management until deciding to "get off the road". A stint at the Nelson Atkins Museum in the photography department and study at Johnson County Community College helped refocus his perspective. He opened BWS in Lenexa.
Black and white has always been the foremost direction in his photography, concentrating in landscapes and cityscapes. To view some of his work, visit the Fine Art Gallery.
