      NAAFA Announces ImagesAR as 2013 Convention Official Photographer

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      July 23, 2013

      Foster City, CA – NAAFA, the civil rights organization working for Equality at Every Size, has announced that Andrew Richter of ImagesAR (www.TheImagesAreEverything.com) will be the official event photographer at its upcoming 2013 Annual Convention & Expo, being held on July 25-29, 2013 at the Westin Hotel, Casino & Spa, located at 160 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89109. ImagesAR will be offering Red-Carpet Portrait style photography at both the Costume Party and Awards Dinner & Fashion Show.

      Andrew Richter's fascination with photography began as a second grader when he spied among the stacks of PS 89's library a coffee-table book called "New York: Sunshine and Shadow." The gaslit images within gave life in his mind's eye to a Victorian city transforming into what would become his hometown. At age 10, Andrew's father gave him his first lesson while on a family trip. With the lens seemingly blocked by a fence, the scared youngster followed his dad's advice and fired the shutter, creating a spot-on image of the White House.

      The magic became real. Andrew's mother later gave him his first camera, a Kodak Instamatic. With his adult life directed in other pursuits, Andrew continued to freeze time through casual snapshots. Entering SUNY/Empire State College in 2006 to complete a long-overdue degree, he delved further into the art through a photojournalism study taught by award-winning documentarian Mel Rosenthal.

      Andrew's list of photographic accomplishments include: being featured on Fox 5's Good Day New York and the local edition of CBS' Early Show. Tasti D-Lite, Richard Harris Fashions, and The Gourmet Angel are on his client list. Andrew's catalog is packed with celebrities and childhood sports heroes from his work with Fans for the Cure, a leading prostate cancer charity. His undying passion for baseball inspires some of his signature images with action portraits of some of the game's current stars and a two-month project documenting the demolition of New York's Shea Stadium figuring prominently in his portfolio. He was honored for this work by Hofstra University as part of their 50th Anniversary New York Mets Conference and a book is in the works.
