About Rich Wexler

ABOUT ME
My name is Rich Wexler. I have been taking photographs since I was a child and have always loved everything about it. Over the past 10 years I have been taking photography much more seriously and just grown to love it more. I am primarily a documentary photographer and specialize in portraits. 

CONNECTING WITH FOLLOWERS/FANS
I have decided to change the way I interact with my fans and followers of my photography work. I am starting a Patreon account with the purposes of having a more intimate connection with fans of my work. A big part of this will be sharing more personal stories about the work that I do and the people that I meet. I am also trying to get away from only sharing with social media and digital means like Instagram and sharing physical work such as prints or books of my work. As a member of my Patreon you'd have access to special prints, books, and my digital journals/ blog

WHAT YOU WILL BE SUPPORTING
I identify as a documentary photographer which means mainly I document things that I find interesting and important to document. Some documentary photographers I try to emulate in my work are Arlene Gottfried, Meryl Meisler, Jamel Shabazz, Andy Sweet, Cindy Sherman, Gary Winogrand, and Robert Frank to name a few. I focus my work on a few things. The main focus on my work is to document communities that are often unseen and unheard in mainstream photography. I do most of my work with LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, working class, and minority communities. I also tend to document places and communities I know may not be in existence in 30-50 years. I am in this for the long term and have been shooting about 8-10 hours each week for the past six years and plan to continue for the next 30. Essentially photographers build archives that can provide a rich history of where we have been as a culture and where we are going. My goals are to continue this work and put out multiple books based on certain projects or ideas. 

PRO-BONO WORK    
I have been doing volunteer work for the past few years for grass roots and d.i.y individuals and organizations. Information on the past and current projects I have and am working on can be found in the link below.

PORTRAIT TRADES
I offer artists, business owners, and bands to name a few free professional portraits in exchange for being subjects of my work. The subject chooses the concept, location, and dress and I shoot. This provides them with high quality professional photographs at no cost (but I do take tips) More information is below.

FREE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES AND MENTORING

I teach individual or small free photography classes (all ages 14 and up) as well as mentoring to those in financial need. I have a had a few students and hoping to offer more. They are provided with a basic camera or device if they cannot afford one.
