References "Rick Dahms is one of my all time favorite people shooters, because no matter the subject's comfort level, Rick makes a connection and creates an environment where an earnest and beautiful truth and strength comes singing through the image - making my client's story come to life and my project a success." Philip Swanstrom Shaw, Golden Lasso "I've had the chance to work with him on several occasions -- Every time, amazing. I'd highly recommend Rick for any of your needs when it comes to photographic solutions. Amazing guy, great person and a consummate expert in creating marvelous "illustration" of visual conception.” – Tim Girvin, Girvin Design. “Rick is a fantastic photographer and makes the process of doing photo shoots smooth and creative. His witty sense of humor puts subjects at ease and his talent shines from conceptualization to the finished project." – Stephanie Mennella, Journey/AAA "I've worked with Rick on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. His work is always exceptional.” – Tom Ridinger, Barron's, Smart Money “Rick is a great photographer and you will know it the minute you meet him. His calm demeanor and sense of humor makes everyone in the room relax." – John Schuler, EXCLAIM "...he captures the essence of his subject's personality in each one of his images. Rick is a lot of fun to work with (he cracks me up!), very professional, extremely creative and will go to any length to get the perfect shot...including strapping on a harness and climbing to the tiptop of the Space Needle!" – Nicole Meoli, AAA "His style is unmistakable. He has this unique ability to translate a subject's life style to a finished image. If there were a single description, it would be photojournalistic portraiture. Clients will never forget the experience." – Carl Beebe, Color One "Creative - Rick Dahms is extremely creative, always looking for the unusual angle in his photo, something different, something new. He is a VERY good photographer, works well under stress and under less than optimal conditions, makes great pictures, brings out the personality in his subjects, and is not a bad guy to hang with." – Jim Mannino, Mannino Arts "After 30 years of hiring photographers across the country and around the globe I have a great resource list of "favorites". I checked my WA folder and noticed Rick was there, twice! Simply put; he's a very talented guy!!" – Norm Graf, Graf Designs "He has an amazing eye and really brings out the personality in his subjects. I always knew I would not only get breath-taking results when hiring him, but also award-winning shots." – Karen Steichen, Village Voice Media.
