Rick Profile

Hi, I am Rick, it is nice to meet you.

Hi, we are glad you stopped by our little corner of the digital world!  DIY portraits was created by me, Rick Bolt to help people learn how to take great portraits of themselves and their loved ones.  Maybe you are like me, you are getting started in photography to record the everyday adventures of your kids.

My oldest is now  off to college, I have learned a few things along the way over the years.  I plan to share those with you here.  I have learned enough to even get paid a few bucks for my photography.  What are your photography goals?  Let me know about your goals and what you would like to learn. Shoot (photography pun!) me an email and let me know.

A little bit about me, I have been married to my beautiful wife for over twenty years now.  We have six great kids.  That is right, SIX great kids. Our life is full of adventures and I am capturing many moments of it with my photographic passion. My first DSLR was a Nikon body.  I now primarily shoot with my micro four thirds camera with my many old Nikon and Olympus manual lenses.  I am a firm believer you don’t have to have the latest greatest camera to get the best shots. Let me also warn you that I love corny jokes, so you may step into a few of those on my websites.

Check out our videos and tutorials. We strive to provide you with quality lessons to help you learn your portrait ways.
