About Richard Mayer
Richard Mayer's trademark is his sophisticated use of light and his artistic composition, which has made him one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most sought after full time photographers for over 25 years. He specializes in events, corporate meetings, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs as well as fine portraiture. Richard is recommended by the Ritz Carton Hotel, the Westin St Francis, Fairmont, the Sir Francis Drake as well as other venues and vendors which hold his professionalism in high regard, calling him "The Mercedes of Photographers"
He has been a board member for NACE (National Association of Catering and Events), an active member of the International Special Events Society and a founding member of the Photo Wedding Guild.
His photos have been displayed at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, SF Jazz Gallery, Rayco Gallery and at the SF MOMA Artist gallery where his work has sold well. Richard has taught seminars for PPGBA (Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area) and teaches night photography workshops on Alcatraz.
He lives in San Mateo County with his wife, children's book writer, Pamela Mayer, and has a growing family with two adult daughters, son in law and Grandbaby Molly.
