Photographer | Designer | Podcaster
My name is RE Casper. A child of the arts, born and raised in rural Southern Illinois. Bouncing around the creative world since the early 2000’s, I’ve worked in graphic design, web design, fine arts, technical illustration, video production, journalism, education, vehicle graphics and well, most things creative.
In 2009, me, my wife and our little terrier, Travis, moved to Chicago and through new friends in the Chicago Photographic Society, I rediscovered my passion for the camera. By 2011 and the rise of the Occupy movement, I found a fascination with documenting people and my obsession with human interest photography began.
Today, northern California is my home, specializing in street and documentary photography, architecture/real estate, event photography and fine art. I also organize photo walks and teach workshops on street photography and Adobe Lightroom, both independently and through the esteemed Harvey Milk Photo Center.
As founder, producer and co-host of StreetPX, Jim Watkins and myself attempt to create a relaxed conversational show, centered on street photographers, documentary photographers and photojournalists from around the world. Exploring their origin, inspiration, the craft, current news and random topics every episode.
