Architectural & Interior
Hi, thanks for stopping by my page. My name is Rich and I am the sole proprietor at richard alan photography. My sole focus (pun intended haha) is 100% customer satisfaction. I capture the spaces created by Architects, Interior Designers, Builders, Hoteliers and any other Artists that have created something beautiful.
Besides a passion for Photography, I love technology and all of the gadgets and social media platforms that are part of our culture in the 21st century. However, when it comes to Clients, I am old school. I like to meet people face to face and talk to them. To me, it's the best way to come to understand the vision of an Artist. And after all, a good photograph is subjective and I want to know how the Client is thinking. So if there is a project you would to discuss, let's meet for a coffee and talk.
"I have been working with Rich for years. I spent a lot of time interviewing photographers before going with Rich and his professionalism and attention to detail stood out to me from the beginning. I am happy to say he certainly didn't disappoint. As a professional realtor he gets photos to me on time and he is flexible and easy to work with. He has a great eye and has helped me sell 100's of homes over the years with his great photos. I work with him on every listing I take."

I had the pleasure of working with Rich on my two oldest daughter's senior photo shoots in Minneapolis. After looking at hundreds of photos taken of seniors in the area, I spoke to Rich about my vision for each of the shoots. My hope was to capture the most important things about each of my girls in a series of photos highlighting our city, the lakes and gardens around Minneapolis. Rich asked great questions, listened to my crazy ideas of bringing props (like a cello, viola, basketball, stack of favorite books) and integrating them into the cityscape backdrops. Rich was patient, kind, used humor to help us all relax and stepped outside of the usual to capture each unique personality of my daughters. My favorite pics were those that we not scripted but inspired by Rich's creativity. Rich knew exactly how to encourage each one to move naturally and often which allowed him to take photos that were a genuine reflection of their spirit. His use of a variety of discs to capture light and reflect a beautiful glow on their faces gave greater depth and warmth to their portfolios. Our photos ranged from sitting in a rowboat on Lake Harriet to playing the cello with the brick Scmitt Music wall in downtown as the backdrop. Nothing was beyond ask or reach for Rich. Even in the midst of spotty rain during our shoot, Rich didn't stop. He allowed each girl to change wardrobes through the shoot, protected their curled locks from wind and rain with an umbrella he brought along and kept a spirit of calm and confidence as he worked with all of us.
My next project with him includes staff and clinic photography at my two offices in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The experience of working with Rich and the end product are of the highest standards of professionalism, creativity and excellence. I enthusiastically recommend Rich and will continue to refer him to great clients who will benefit from his gifts.
