About Me

“That's our job as photographers, to tell a story.”

— Jeff Cable



Rich Bateman is a high school Digital Photography teacher and freelance photographer, based in Southern California — but I'll take any opportunity to travel!

When I'm not taking photos, you'll find me working around the house, researching my ancestry, or spending time with my family.


My work focuses on recording a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, athletic and event performances, or just working with the perfect light in the golden hour.

Always experimenting with new techniques, I'm equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and use both according to the needs of the project.
