My name is
Ethan Righter, and I am a Photographer. I was inspired to become a photographer after my mother passed when
I was 15 years old. The only thing I inherited from my mother was her Nikon 4004S. Living
in a small town called Sunol (the neighboring town is Niles Canyon, where
Charlie Chaplin’s films were made), I began adventuring through the woods and
photographing everything I possibly could. I was captured. After finding out
every generation in my family had been amateur photographers at one point or
another, I made it my life’s goal to become a successful photographer. I began
shooting on black and white film and then shot color. Once accepted at Hallmark
Institute Of Photography when I was 19, I graduated to Medium Format, and Large
Format film. Even shooting with a Digital Aptus back connected to a Mamiya 645
AFD. My love for capturing fractions of a second is endless.
I am a Geek, a
Dreamer, an Entrepreneur, and most important, a Photographer.
I want my work to
move people, like my mother’s camera did to me.
