Rick joined Photographic Services in 1989 after earning his degree in Telecommunications from UGA’s Grady College of Journalism. He worked in a variety of photographic disciplines, including sports, performing arts, fashion and journalism before coming “home” to UGA. He was the only full-time photographer when he joined the unit and has guided its growth from those early days of working in a combined studio-news service intern office, through the transition from film, chemistry and index card assignment filing to computers, digital imaging and online image databases. Today he coordinates a professional staff of five full-time photographers and one part-time photographer.
Rick and his wife Beverly have adjusted to their empty nest by traveling and raising their “second” child, a mixed-breed beagle.
Paul earned two degrees from UGA, an AB in Anthropology in 1975 and a master’s degree in Education in 1980. After a career as an archaeological field assistant and newspaper photographer, Paul joined Photographic Services in 1994 as the unit’s second full-time photographer.
Peter earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in photography from UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art in 1994. He began working in Photographic Services in 1996, where he contributes regularly to Georgia Magazine and Columns. Currently, he is the coordinator of photography for Georgia Magazine. In addition to local and statewide coverage of UGA's programs, Peter has documented the University's work around the globe, covering faculty research and student programs in Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. His independent projects include images from occupied Iraq, Kosovo after the NATO bombing, post-conflict Guatemala, and Internally Displaced Persons camps in Uganda.
Dorothy first joined Photographic Services as a student intern in the summer of 2009. She originally received a bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from UGA, but after a year of working in the field, decided it wasn’t for her. She returned to UGA and earned her second degree in Magazines and Photojournalism from the Grady College of Journalism. Dorothy has worked as a part-time photographer on the staff since the spring of 2010.
Although her first love is nature and animal photography, she enjoys constantly learning and discovering new ways to photograph the variety of people and events that take place on and around campus. When she’s not in the office, she can be found coaching competitive gymnastics or taking her dog on yet another adventure.
Since earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1981 from UGA, Robert has worked as a newspaper photojournalist, public relations photographer and commercial photographer, as well as a professional fine art black & white printer. At the age of 12, Robert “relocated” tools, car parts and other junk from the small basement in his family’s house in order to build his first darkroom. Now, over 40 years later, he continues to find photography in the digital era a fascinating hobby and a demanding profession.
With a degree in English and a background as an award-winning photojournalist, Dot joined Photographic Services in 2003. Her photographic story telling skills have evolved and morphed into the multimedia production field. Although she prefers assignments of the photojournalistic variety, she is happy behind the camera no matter what the task. When she’s not behind the camera or editing video, she can be found on a yoga mat trying to work out the kinks of being human.
Andrew is the newest full-time photographer to Photographic Services, joining the staff in October 2007. He worked at the Athens Banner Herald and The Augusta Chronicle for ten years before coming to UGA. Andrew’s documentary style of photography captures University life as it happens, whether on campus or around the country. He enjoys mixing stills, audio and video to create multimedia productions (or projects) that tell the stories of university alumni, faculty, staff, and students. Andrew and his wife Amy reside in Watkinsville with their two small children.
