Richard Sherman is a professional photographer whose work captures the peace and tranquility of nature through clean, uncluttered composition and the use of space and light to depict the opportunities that nature offers. His photographs, from serene landscapes and seascapes to dramatic black and white images and beautiful color abstracts, provide a visual escape, a refuge from the stress and chaos of modern life. Richard is currently working on a wooden boat series. 

Richard is a Navy veteran whose photography business is a certified Veteran Owned Small Business. He is a member of the North American Nature Photography Association, International Furnishings & Design Association and Philadelphia Photo Arts Center and was named one of the “Best of the Best” Emerging Fine Art Photographers of 2014 by BWGallerist.  His artwork has been purchased by various healthcare and hospitality companies, and is displayedin VA hospitals throughout the country.  

Richard returned to New Jersey after living for the last few years in Puerto Rico and traveling the Caribbean. He was recently featured in Area magazine, a publication focused on art, architecture, and design in Puerto Rico.
