After several years as a serious hobbyist, Richard began his formal photographic career in 1961 as a U. S. Navy photographer in Southeast Asia. Upon discharge from the Navy, Dick stayed in the South Pacific and Southeast Asia in various capacities. These included photojournalism, aerial cartography, and industrial photography.

Returning to the United States in 1971, he worked in commercial photography and aerial, again, before getting involved in Law Enforcement photography with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). While with GBI, he was certified by the state as an instructor and began teaching courses in various phases of law enforcement photography in Georgia, Kentucky, and South Carolina. Working with the bureau for 6-1/2 years, Dick was in charge of their forensic photography lab for two years before joining Kodak, in May of 1982.

As a result of an August 1994 restructuring at Kodak, Dick’s position and function of forensic imaging training were eliminated. He, therefore, formed the company “Forensic Imaging, Inc.” and is president of it. During his career with Kodak, he trained over 10,000 law enforcement officers nationally and internationally. His company continues this training career and is dedicated to providing quality and excellence in training and consulting in both traditional and digital imaging.

During his career, in addition to various Kodak courses, Dick attended the FBI crime lab photographic course, Winona School Law Enforcement Photography course, and McCrone Institute course on photo-micrography. Dick is, or has been, a member of many forensic organizations. Some of these are the Evidence Photographers International Council, the International Association of Identification, the International Association of Arson Investigators, the Association of Forensic Document Examiners and the International Association of Chiefs of Police. In 1990 he received the Hakanson Award from the Evidence Photographers International Council for contributions to forensic photography. He has been a director on the Board of Forensic Document Examiners. Additionally, at various times, he has been chairman of the Photography and Electronic Imaging sub-committee of the International Association for Identification. He received a presidential award from them in 2001. In August of 2002, Dick received the Nikon Evidence Photographer of the Year award.
