|Message from Norman Rich
Welcome. I am a visual artist with studio residence in Vancouver B.C. I approach photography as an expressive artist medium with the purpose of creating fine images that honor wild nature. Creative intent and visual choices guide me, qualities of light, color, and tonalities inspire me. Bookmark this site and you'll discover new photographs on an ongoing basis. I appreciate your championing my wild nature photography with your votes and comments.
