Rick Teare, Charlotte Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement I've played around with photography off and on for the last 20 years, but it's only been in the last couple of years that I started taking photography seriously. I like to shoot nature & wildlife shots. Whether it's a roaring river, some wildlife that I spy along the nature trail, or a beautiful flower or tree, I shoot whatever interests me when I have a camera in my hands. It's always a thrill to look at the pictures that you've taken and find that one picture that really stands out. The search for that next great shot is what keeps me excited about photography. I hope you enjoy the photos in my gallery.
