About this pro

With 30+ years in commercial photography, I have an established business and portfolio with expertise in food, lifestyle, executive headshots, and product photography. I bring positive energy to every job and have a quick editing turnaround time from photoshoot to digital asset delivery so that you can get straight to using your photos for marketing or other needs quickly

Photography is a form of story-telling for me. I work with my clients to capture the ideal image - always taking light, composition, and setting into account. There are often variables that can't be controlled when planning a photoshoot. However, I am a problem-solver that can always improvise to ensure my clients get their desired outcome. I love a challenge and have taken photos hanging out of a helicopter, have chased race cars around a track, and am always a helpful taste tester when taking food shots.

    I've worked with Dick for many years on various advertising, corporate and artistic projects. Dick is not only one of the most talented photographers around, he's also amazing to work with on creative projects. While his photography career is vast, what really makes Dick a stand-out photographer is his ability to take your vision, no matter the subject, and translate it into a beautiful photo.

    I've worked with Richard for 15+ years and have always found him to be a flexible, pleasant, and highly professional photographer. His capabilities include lifestyle, corporate, architecture, and food photography which is rare to have that kind of range. He's a go-to for me when I need a project to get done right, and I've always enjoyed our partnership.

    Spahr Photography is a trusted photographer that I have worked with for many years. Always a pleasure to spend time with Richard and get work done at the same time. His work is solid and he is very versatile. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

  • Daniel Sung

    We have known Richard for over 15 years and with every project we have worked on with him, he has overdelivered. Richard Spahr is a professional photographer that has extensive knowledge, techniques, and equipment to capture all the shots, and more, that our client needed. He came prepared, arrived early, and even wrapped 30 minutes early having enough time to shoot another product that was not even on the shot list. All of the shots Richard delivered, our client loves, and we are honored to be able to work with one of the most knowledgeable, thoughtful, and professional photographers here in Indianapolis. He is a true treasure to Indy's creative community.
