In 1968 Richard Palumbo was born in Arles en Provence in the Southeast of France. After spending many years working in the hotel and catering business in notable cities spanning the globe such as Paris, Cannes, Les 2 Alpes, Bournemouth, London, Orlando, Aspen, San Francisco and New York he's found his passion and his place. He currently shares his time between Les Saintes Maries de la mer in Camargue, South of France and Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. It is in Thailand where he's discovered his love for photography in an environment where his artistic talent can thrive in sync with his personal values. He used to prefer to shoot one-on-one portraits with a traditional film Konica and a digital Canon 350D cameras so that his subjects' soul were projected into the picture. He now uses a Canon G12 and a Canon A3200IS. In the near future he plans to travel the world more extensively and bring forth more images from our beautiful Mother Earth.
