About Rich Woodson
I traded painting for photography in 2005 after my cat pounced on my palette and ran through my apartment spreading turquoise oil paint everywhere. It was a turning point of sorts and years in the making. Before that I'd always been under the impression that photography was easy. Or rather, that it was easier than painting. And it is. But it's still challenging and that's one thing I love about it. That and its ability to shepherd me into contact with so many interesting and vital people. Truly.
