BFA Professional Photography

Richard L. Fuller earned a BA in Illustration and Advertising Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in 1989. A native Californian, Richard has been shooting as a commercial advertising photographer in studio and on location since 1984.

He has photographed a wide variety of subjects, from his first commercial job for Like Cola (7-Up’s attempt at a cola product) to clothing catalogs, medical instruments, resort hotels, celebrities, and more. In 1991 Richard’s love of flight prompted him to make his first skydive.

He has logged several thousand jumps since then and specializes in aerial and skydiving photography, which he describes as the perfect mix of two of his greatest passions, flying and photography. In 2002 Richard returned to Brooks Institute to teach and share his passion for photography.

He says his teaching style is very similar to the way he coaches skydivers: “I believe in pushing my students beyond what they thought possible and helping them realize new possibilities for themselves.” The classes he teaches include studio and location advertising photography (people and product) and action sports photography.
