Iceland Grabrok and North, Drone Photograph

Rich Isaacman is the President of the Digital Photography Club of Annapolis. His photographic experience stems from a love of travel: he’s been to over 50 countries on 6 continents, and tries to make photography a central part of his visits. He publishes a travel blog that showcases some of his photography. Rich took his first “serious” photos while living in Hawaii, a place that offers endless opportunities for striking images. Now, as he and his wife globe-trot, he tries to capture a sense of place as well those evocative moments that form our strongest memories.

Rich’s work appears regularly in galleries and shows around the area, including ACAAC exhibits at BWI and Anne Arundel Medical Center, and the Maryland Federation of Art’s Circle Gallery in downtown Annapolis. These include a solo exhibit at Maryland Hall, showcasing 29 of his drone photographs from both the local area and exotic destinations. His travel photos have won awards from the Washington Post and Beacon Newspapers.

 
 
 

I teach drone photography at Maryland Hall, which is a great opportunity to share that particular love. I enjoy teaching budding photographers that getting the most striking shots is a combination of art and technology that lets them exercise creativity in multiple directions, for example not just how to fly and position the drone for a striking image but how to understand lighting, exposure, composition, and post-processing.
