Rick Findler does not shy away from mortal danger, adventure, and anything if it means he will get the perfect photograph. Covering conflict for the past seven years, Rick has stories from the front lines of the most dangerous and violent wars, told in a way that will have you awestruck, on the edge of your seat and, in some cases even laughing.

For those who are all too familiar with the pressure and constant deadlines of the work place, Rick's talk will offer a different perspective on a stressful work environment that will have you volunteering to do that next presentation. A photographer by the name of Robert Capa once said “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough” which is a mantra Rick Findler lives his life by.

 Rick has documented the ever present refugee crisis from its very sources in countries like Libya, Iraq and Somalia to name a few. In 2012 Rick was smuggled through the closed borders of Syria to document the start of the Syrian civil war, a conflict that still rages today. His photographs covering the Syrian uprising received international attention, a number of awards, and was exhibited in the National Theatre in London as part of the coveted Press Photographers Year exhibition. More recently Rick flew to Burundi to cover the violent anti presidential protests, as well as joining a group of foreign volunteer fighters in Northern Iraq in the fight against ISIS.

 Whilst planning his next trip, Rick works in London covering breaking news. He often works for publications such as The Telegraph, The Guardian and Press Association, taking on commissions such as his acclaimed 2016 work from Mount Athos, where he photographed Orthodox monks in the oldest monastic community in the world. Ricks work has been published all over the world including papers such as The New York Times, books including Inside ISIS and even in magazines such as Playboy.

 Away from the camera, Rick is a talented free-skier and will be found on the slopes of The Alps or The Rocky Mountains whenever he has the time."
