Although Rick Collins was born in the United States, he has spent more than 40 years living and traveling abroad. His love of photography and travel adventure, combined with his attraction to foreign cultures and odd jobs in strange places, have taken him to the far-flung corners of the world.
The photos in this portfolio represent Rick's travel journal, but also reflect his deep affection for and appreciation of the various subject matter. Under the banner of Spotlight Photo Safaris, Rick currently leads photo workshops in Africa and Alaska where, until recently, he worked 10 seasons as a grizzly bear guide for fellow photographers in remote Lake Clark National Park. Since resigning as lead guide, Rick is back on the road again with his camera, seeking out fresh insight and new adventures in foreign lands.
