Published FRONT COVER photographer rj Lerich has been clicking the shutter professionally for 20+ years. After a first career not to his liking, he decided to acquiesce to wanderlust and started traveling worldwide often to locales most of his peers had never heard of or knew not much about. While continuing his journeys, he studied photography for 3 years from the basics up to detailed studio and location lighting at ICP in NYC readying himself for the world of professional photography.
His photos are sold every single day of the year by 10 worldwide agencies and appear on front covers of such prestigious books including The Lonely Planet, World Nations and more and are featured in Huffington Press, USA Today, Dan's Papers, Britannica, Travel Channel, Late Night, Yahoo, Time Out, MSN and numerous other online and print journals such as Fodor's, Frommer's, Hunter Guides, Moon Guides and more.
In addition to the above names, his clients include Four Seasons Realty, Keller Williams, Broadway Training Center, Round Hill Community Theater and many more.
His enjoyment comes from being staff production photographer for Broadway Training for 10+ years shooting Broadway's productions and travelling worldwide shooting images/videos which are sold online on a daily basis by various agencies such as Getty, Shutterstock, Google(Dreamstime), Adobe(Fotolia) and more.
He has been called a perfectionist by his peers.
