“Mr. Dick’s work reflects the beauty of today’s aircraft, the airports that serve them, and the open skies where they fly,” said Lynne Adelman, President of Flight Path Museum and Learning Center. “He captures a spectacular drama of light and color in each of his photos.”
In addition to his fine art photography, Dick is a pilot and works as an aviation planner for HNTB Corporation, an employee-owned infrastructure solutions firm serving public and private owners and contractors. He has been involved with the Tom Bradley International Terminal Expansion at Los Angeles International Airport and advanced planning for the Terminal D Replacement at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
Dick has exhibited his photographs at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica, the Museum for Flight in Seattle, the Los Angeles Fine Art Building and various other venues in Southern California and nationwide. He received a first-place photography award for his collection at the 2016 Beverly Hills Art Show.
“As a young boy, I was fascinated by aviation and pursued my passion by becoming a licensed pilot and took up fine art photography,” said Dick. “I am honored to have the opportunity to share my collection of airport and aircraft photographs with so many museum visitors who are also aviation enthusiasts.”
Creative by nature, Dick pursued new methods and techniques, including infrared photography where he uses custom modified cameras to capture light that goes unseen by the human eye. Through his technique, the rendered images provide a new unseen perspective on what would be a familiar scene.
HNTB’s many signature aviation projects in the west include design and construction of the Bradley West Terminal Modernization project at Los Angeles International Airport; the Van Nuys Airport Runway 16R Rehabilitation; design of the air traffic control tower at San Francisco International Airport; and design of the “Green Build” expansion at San Diego International Airport, among others.
