Rick & Wanda Carmichael

Sensual Portrait Photographers

About Rick

It's an understatement to say that Rick has a great deal of experience as a professional photographer... as he's been shooting for around 40 years. His early years as a photographer were focused on color landscape images—shooting Kodachrome slide film—when he was living in northern Utah and then also in southwestern Colorado.

In 2003, Rick purchased a large-format film camera and started shooting black and white landscapes and also sensual portraits and fine-art nudes in California. Then, soon after starting to shoot large-format black and whites, Rick purchased a high-end Nikon digital camera for his landscapes and portraiture.

A chance trip to Bali in 2007—with a significant amount of camera gear—was all it took to convince him to move to Bali from California. Upon his arrival in Bali, he founded LuxViz, a professional photography agency specializing in images of indulgent luxury travel.

Rick's current clientelle are women living in Bali, or holiday visitors coming to Bali who want to celebrate their bodies through sensual/sexy images in this exotic, tropical setting.
