Spring into Summer

The flowery language of
Richard James Arredondo:

Art, Photography, Words + Videos to Inspire

Working with Feelings + Telling Stories

"It's okay to stand out from the crowd, it's preferred"

Portraits are done in a quick and candid style. I use only film and old cameras. No touch-ups, no photoshop. Just light, film and people just as they are. It's pretty simple actually.

If you live in the San Francisco or Austin! let's be pals, make art and take photographs. Tell me about your art projects. That's what I'm most interested in. I'm also looking to do personal style portraits, in a street fashion style. Look around my blog, you'll get an idea of how the world looks to me.

"Tonight, We’ll Celebrate Love"
Let’s start over, let’s start fresh.
Painful pasts, angry memories, walk away from them.
Looking forward to the possibilities of the future.
