Ricky Guajardo -
An endless passion for photography
for discovery, for people, for life.
My name is Ricardo Guajardo. I go by Ricky. This is a name given to me by my brother. He was unable to pronounce my given name, “Ricardo.”
I was born in a small town in South Texas. Crystal City is the spinach capital of the world. It is the adopted home of the popular cartoon character “Popeye the Sailor Man;” however, I lived most of my life in the Dallas Fort Worth area of North Texas. I graduated from Mansfield High School in South Fort Worth, TX. I studied art and science at the University of Texas at Arlington as well as Tarrant County Community College. During this time, I became interested in photography and life drawing. I was influenced by my Late Aunt “Deya” who, along with her husband Alan Peeler, are life-long photographers.
I have an interest in video, animation, cosplay, fashion, glamour, as well as science fiction and comic books. I’ve worked freelance for a photo studio that catered to children and young adult sporting events. I hope to share my views with you through my camera.
Please let me know your photography needs and I will absolutely fulfill them for you Ricky
