Richard Gillard


Richard’s interest in photography began when he first bought a Kodak Brownie camera at the age of 7.  After graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in journalism, he lived a kind of vagabond lifestyle working at different newspapers throughout the country including The Dubuque Telegraph-Herald in Iowa, Bay City Times in Michigan, Albuquerque Journal in New Mexico, and the Daily Press in California’s High Desert. Richard is currently the Photo Editor at the Acorn Newspapers and has been on staff since 2010.
