Sunset on Fire Island by Rick Berk

I ultimately wanted a website where you could find everything you might want to know about me and my work, in one place. This site does that.  This blog, for instance, is the best place to keep up with my work in an in-depth way, to read the stories behind certain shots or sets of shots, to see the latest images I've captured, and to see how I go about making the images I do.

In addition, this site allows me to offer my images as high quality prints in a variety of formats, as I've been doing for several years now. The change is that in the past my work has been offered on print-on-demand website, where you are not my customer, you are the customer of the company running the site. The ability to interact with me was minimal. Here, I now have greater control over customer service and can answer questions quickly and easily, can respond to requests for custom sizes or media, and can keep you better informed about the status of your order when needed. It'll be far more personal.

The shopping experience is greatly enhanced too! Browse my images on your phone or tablet, and use the camera on your device to see exactly how my image will look on your wall. Shop with confidence that the size is correct and the image and any framing or style will match your decor. It's a really powerful way to make sure you're getting the image you want.

Finally, this site allows me to show you everything I can do. The print-on-demand site allowed for a profile for me that merely showed the work available for sale. In the future, I will be adding information about portrait sittings, event coverage, and other photo services I offer. I've already added a page for private photo lessons if you're interested in learning how to take better photos.

So, feel free to look around and explore.  I'll be working diligently over the coming weeks to get the best of my work from my career up and available on this site, in addition to going out and creating new images. I'd love it if you subscribed to my blog and came along for the ride!
