Biography

World Travels photography Photographer, writer, musician, Richard Duval travels the Northwest capturing its unique blend of wine, scenic and landscape images. His photographs can be found on note cards, galleries, and bookstores as well as in various art fairs and shows, and several stock sites. He lives near Mill Creek, WA with Leslee who creates and produces the personal note card lines, and Brunello, the wine dog.

Though mainly utilizing the Nikon D700 digital camera, his photo library also contains thousands of images on Velvia and Provia slide films, using Nikon F3 and FM cameras, Nikkor lenses, and a variety of filters. Film images are scanned on a Nikon Coolscan V slide scanner or the Crosfield Magnascan 636 drum scanner. His gallery and fine art prints are printed on Epson and Canon professional inkjet printers on gallery papers using pigmented archival inks.

In between photo sessions, Duval's main love is the piano. His CD Notes to Myself is a re-issue of an early work featuring tracks digitally remastered to enhance these intimate musical stories, including a bonus track of new material. Notes to Myself contains original melodies -- some composed, some completely improvised; all written and performed by Duval.
