I received my first camera in sixth grade and knew photography was part of my destiny.

My passion grew seriously in high School.  I started working for "The Governor" yearbook at the end of my freshman year at Ross S Sterling High School in Baytown, TX.  The following year I was named head photographer and for the next two years worked in that capacity.  By my senior year I had to relinquish my position on the yearbook because of UIL rules.  I turned pro and started working for the Baytown Sun newspaper.  My duties were primarily sports and feature news until I graduated.  Then I became a full time staff news photographer and immersed myself in news photography.

Over the course of the next decade I drifted in and out of numerous professional photography positions and even left the photography world for a period of time.  I experimented with numerous aspects of visual media until in the early 90's I settled on portraiture and really discovered my "gifting".  In 1992 I became a managing partner and head photographer at "Blaker Studio Royal" in Manhattan, KS.  In 2001 I renamed the studio Rick McCauley Photography and have been operating under that name since. In 2005 I moved the studio to Cypress, TX where I am happy to be back in Texas. 

I love the process of creating an image that captures the unique qualities of each subject in front of my camera.  My artistic influences are diverse and I am constantly searching for new ways to create portraits that capture the unique qualities of humanity.
