Biographical writings by Rick Majercik

"Be true to your vision and inspire from your heart."

 I have been very blessed to be around some amazing photographers. I have enjoyed photographing some of the most iconic locations in New England and across the United States. I've been inspired by the work of Ansel Adams, David Akoubian, Cecil Holmes, Mike Moats, John Batdorff, Erik Valind and many others. I hope my students are able to enjoy their time with me and learn to create amazing images every place they visit. 

Yours in photography,
