Rich started out his career in commercial photography over 30 years ago at his father-in-law’s studio in Dallas, where he was exposed to all facets of photography. It was primarily a studio where they photographed all kinds of products from jewelry to large furniture set-ups. As the studio grew, it branched out to shooting in different cities on location and setting up portable studios. This is where he learned the value-added benefits of setting up an efficient in-house studio for a client inside their business. He would photograph complete catalogs inside their facility, allowing the client increased creative control and flexibility in their photo shoots. He continued traveling throughout the country shooting a wide variety of catalogs and brochures. 

Wanting to settle down, Rich moved to Colorado Springs and opened a photo studio specializing in advertising, primarily catalog photography. Chartier Studios was one of the first studios in southern Colorado to utilize high-end digital camera backs. Having photographed literally hundreds of local and national catalogs, Rich brings his extensive knowledge from years of expertise to each and every project he works on. You can rely on Rich to deliver top-quality photo images on time, every time.
