Meet Rich Cirminello, CPP
Influenced by elements of fashion, beauty, and glamor, Rich Cirminello’s provocative photographs are characterized by a minimal color palette and powerful use of lighting, depth and composition.
“I’ve been photographing glamor fashion and intimate portraits since 2003, but few things compare to the satisfaction I get from Boudoir. I know I’ve done a good job when a woman sees herself and starts getting misty realizing how beautiful she really is.
Many women consider a boudoir photo session an opportunity to celebrate and express herself in a way that she cannot often do in everyday life. For some it is a safe way to try something fun that takes her a little bit out of her comfort zone allowing her to act in a way that is a bit more adventurous than she normally does; for others it gives her the freedom to act like she REALLY IS without the restrictions and judgment of others.
I believe boudoir has the ability to help restore, revitalize and refresh; you will see yourself in a way that you may have never seen yourself before. No matter what, I am willing to bet that you love what you see. Boudoir is 100% authentic. It starts with you and it ends with you, and I am very proud to be a boudoir photographer. I couldn’t imagine a better way to use my skills and talent.
And I am grateful that I get to be a part of the experience.”
In addition to boudoir, Rich has photographed the runways at Fashion Weeks in New York, LA, and San Francisco, as well as London, Hong Kong, and Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week abroad.
His photographs have been published in print and magazines, fashion and beauty industry trade publications, fashion catalogs and look books, and displayed and sold as fine art in gallery shows in San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles.
But Rich is not just a photographer; he is a recognized and respected educator in the boudoir and larger photography communities. His unique style and commitment to quality has earned him a reputation as a leader, a master, constantly pushing boundaries and setting new standards of excellence. When you choose Rich Cirminello as your boudoir photographer, you’re not just investing in a session; you’re stepping into the hands of a true craftsman.
