Photographer, Rick Tauceda Visuals
Born in Tela Honduras, Rick’s family migrated to New Orleans LA in 1960 where he met his wife of 37 years and eventually settled in the Tampa Bay FL area in the late ’90s. Photography has been his passion for about 17 years. It started in May of 2000 when he went on a vacation to Cairns Australia and was disappointed that he had a cheap Kodak disposable camera…the images were typically dull and did not capture what he experienced.
From that moment on, he was determined to photograph the color of life as best as he could. After his retirement from the postal service in 2006, Rick turned his passion into a professional photography business and has done work for companies that include: Cabot Cheese of Vermont, Cajun Fishing Adventures, Valpak, Tampa Bay Times, Bright House Network, Besito Mexican Restaurant, Chappell Roberts and many more organizations throughout the Tampa Bay region. In addition, he donates his photography skill to local non-profit organizations such as Kids Place of Tampa, Suncoast United Way, Sister Dulce Foundation and Tampa Homemakers.
In partnership with “That Business Show with Jamie Meloni”, he has photographed over 1,000 Tampa Bay area business entrepreneurial guests who appeared on the show since October of 2015. He was recently published in the flagship 2016 Best of Tampa Bay book by Proudly Florida/Global Village Publishing.
As a freelance photographer, his mission is to capture those timeless moments of life, document important events and places, portray people in beautiful light and create corporate images that compel one’s attention. Rick sees himself as a visual sojourner in a digital landscape where photography becomes a window in the journey of life.
Rick is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, Tampa Bay Business Owners, Florida Professional Photographers, Tampa Area Professional Photographers Association, and he enjoys travel to other countries to experience their beauty through his lens. He and his wife Marki, are proud grandparents to 5 grandchildren. Website: www.ricktauceda.com, Twitter: @Rekardo, Hashtag: #RicksLens
