Raised in Chandler, Arizona, Ricky began experimenting with photography and short film, inspired by the golden era of the music video. 

His talent and passion for photography lead him to the Art Institute of Phoenix, where he graduated with “Best Portfolio” honors.  Relocating to Los Angeles, Ricky cut his teeth working in photo studios and assisting industry giants. Since venturing out on his own, Ricky won an international gallery competition through Smashbox Studios in 2010, solidifying his place as a leading behind-the-lens artist.  Ricky has appeared on television shows as a featured photographer and began shooting for countless celebrity clients. Most recently, Ricky has shot recurring projects with the Walt Disney Company.

From theatrical key-art to cutting edge editorial, Ricky’s work is fast becoming a game-changer in the entertainment industry.
