Rick Rhodes has a passion for what he does. Photography can always get you into places most people could never dream of going. Just bring your camera and it’s a free pass to the world. Whether soaring at 1500 feet above Charleston’s Harbour or riding to the very top of the newly spectacular span of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge, or having both his feet firmly planted on the ground in his native historic Charleston, this is one businessman that never has a dull moment in his daily career. Rick became an instant photographer at a young age when his teacher handed him a camera on the playground, to the high school yearbook where the fascination of developing images in the darkroom took hold, to College for a much more serious approach towards a profession. Rick earned degrees from the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies in Daytona Beach, Florida and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. From there the desire for photography only grew stronger with more experience and more time. Now, fifteen years later, thousands of images, and a lifetime full of more memories than could satisfy any artists’ palette, the shutter keeps clicking away. With a new building and a high end in-house digital lab, Rick Rhodes Photography and Imaging, LLC is able to say the boundaries are limitless. With a full staff of highly trained professionals in their industry you are bound to get more than you bargained for.
