Michael Rice (Hunt’s Photo Educator, Providence)
Michael Rice is an internationally published fine art landscape artist with a passion for black and white photography reminiscent of the old large format masters. Dramatic light, a smooth tonal range, and textural image details evoking the atmosphere of times past characterize his work. His color work is lush and vibrant, manipulating colors more like an oil painter. Light is playfully manipulated to create drama and intrigue.
He honed his craft through the years working as a commercial, portrait, and wedding photographer, photo retoucher, and printmaker. His philosophy is that most photographers are either camera or computer oriented, meaning that while some photographers excel at taking pictures, others excel at enhancing the images in the computer. He believes that to take photography to the next level; one must pursue both disciplines. The synergy is; knowing what is possible in the digital darkroom, aids in the decision-making process in the field.
