About Me

Hello, I'M Rick vyrostko

I love the world around us, and I am passionate about seeing and capturing it through my photography.  I am finally realizing my dream to share my global images with like minded people who want to experience our planet. My mission is to inspire others in the following ways: 1) to vividly remember far off or special places they have visited and loved, 2) to dream of new places they have yet to see, 3) to get out there and travel to see the world and experience its beauty, and 4) to transform their spaces using my photographic art. Whether you are looking for a special piece of wall art for your home or office, or you are an interior designer looking for unique art pieces for your clients, I want to work together with you to find your new, beautiful, fine art image. 

Background - I was born and raised in Canada's Niagara Region and currently reside in Toronto, Ontario. When I was very young, I remember reading encyclopedia’s and getting lost in stories from around the world, and the vivid images that accompanied them.  That instilled in me a sense of adventure and curiosity, and in those early years, I always dreamt of travelling.  Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 12 years old.  During my time at university, I worked in a camera store and was the vice-president of the photography club.  I knew that photography would play a major role in my life. But I must admit it’s not been easy chasing my dream of "capturing beautiful global images" and making memories.  

Throughout my years of working as an engineer and software sales executive, the bulk of my time was devoted to my career, and unfortunately my passion for photography played second fiddle to my busy corporate life.  However, luckily enough, during that timeframe I stayed engaged in photography with any chance I could get.  As time marched on, I knew that one day I had to shift gears in my life and re-prioritize what was important to me to truly feel fulfilled.  My hectic, deadline fueled corporate life had to end or else I would never realize my dream of full-time photography work.  Over the past decade, I slowly began to make the transition to a life of photography.  I recently made the huge decision to leave my engineering and sales career to jump in and become a full-time fine art photographer and image maker.  I am so excited to now be able to follow my photography passion to the fullest. 

Experience, Qualifications and Skills – With 30+ years of taking photographs in a wide variety of real-world hands-on photographic settings and completing numerous training programs, I have developed and honed my capabilities to visualize the images I want to capture and then execute on the process to capture them. Once the image has been captured in camera, it must be edited to reach the final imagined art piece. I am trained and experienced in many leading-edge editing tools that allow me to create the bold and unique images found in my gallery. I am a graduate of The Photography Institute (PI) and a proud member of The Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) where I am accredited in both "wildlife" and "architecture" photography.  I continue to be a lifelong learner in the methods of fine art photography. 

My Areas of Focus – I have several photographic loves: Travel, Landscapes, Cityscapes, Nature and Architecture.  My zest for travelling and exploring the world has never slowed down. Blessed with having visited 45 countries to date, my future includes as much travel as I can possibly manage.  I remain very curious about the world, and the beauty and joy it provides me. It’s through my lens, that I am able to soak in the visual elements of this great planet, creating images that not only inspire me, but allow me to share these moments and places with others. In fact, photography is core to my exploration and understanding of the wonderous and beautiful world around us. 

For me, it is all about overdelivering for my clients, as I place my personal touch, passion and love of photography in every image I create and deliver, ensuring a wonderful customer experience.  

My Approach – My process in the creation of my artwork found on my Fine Art website follows the following base approach: 1) Envisioning, understanding and planning what images I would like to capture, 2) Capturing images with professional cameras using optimal settings, 3) Reviewing and selecting only the best image files, and 4) Optimizing and refining the final image by using the latest post processing tools in order to achieve excellent levels of composition, detail, mood, rich colors, and clarity. 5) Printing your selected image using the best materials and printing processes possible to ensure that you will be receiving a top-quality final print no matter what print medium or size you select.  My goal is to create images that you will be proud to own and enjoy, or share with your friends, family and business colleagues.   

Trusted Website - My Fine Art Business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my work.  Thank you for spending a few minutes getting to know me and understanding my passion for image making.  If you have any questions at all about me, my photography or my images on this website, please contact me by sending me a message by clicking here.
