Rich Hassinger developed a love of photography while at college. For him, photography is a way to share his expression of the richness our visual world offers. He enjoys capturing images as he encounters them – reacting to the uniqueness of his surroundings, the vividness of colors, of light, of forms and patterns, and the varying moods these collectively evoke. Such encounters might result in an image of a landscape, a city scene, a close-up, or an abstract.
