I have been using Dynalite strobes my entire career. My first Dyanlite pack is over 30 years old and it still works perfectly. On a major assignment I will use Dyanlites ranging in age from my oldest pack to my new Dynalite Baja. The color is always perfect and the light output is always consistent. One less thing to worry about on assignment.

The books Hillary Clinton, Infra Structures, and The Gourmet Prescription are a few of his projects. Rick is the past President of the Boston Press Photographers Association.

“One of the greatest things about being a freelance photojournalist is the great variety of assignments I get to cover and the places I get to go. I could be covering the President one day, spending the following day with a noted scientist or professor (or both) and the following day over seas on a travel story. I truly have the best job in the world”.
