Hello. I am a freelance photographer based in Seattle.  I started working as a photographer after graduating from San Jose State University, CA with a Master's degree in Photojournalism and Mass Communications. 

My childhood obsession to see the outside of my own small world and understand better a great mystery of what the world is made of and my hope to somehow contribute connecting the world closer, led me to study photojournalism.  

I work mostly in editorial and commercial photography.  My personal projects often features social, agricultural, religious subjects and my family. 

My current project is the story about a mother who had diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. 

I am available for assignments anywhere in the world.  Please email me at rika@rikafoto.com for inquires.
