Rick Perez

Rick Perez, also known as 'Good Time Rick', is a music, portrait, and lifestyle photographer.  Since he was 15 years old, Rick has been photographing the adventures he experienced with his friends up and down the California coast.  In his mid-twenties, he decided to move to New York City to develop his eye and discover his niche.  During his 6 years in New York City, Rick has been able to uniquely capture the city's creative inhabitants, finding his niche in the musicians of the DIY scene.  His use of light, composition, and ability to be a fly on the wall has gained him recognition from the top photographers in the industry as Photo District News' 2018 Ultimate Music Moment Contest winner.   Recently, Rick relocated to Southern California, giving his eye a much needed blank slate.  He currently resides in San Diego, where he continues to document the DIY scene and challenge himself in another visual format, videography.
