Ted's Educator - Ritchie Johnston
Rich Johnston is Ted’s Cameras pro-camera and commercial sales consultant with our Queensland, Maroochydore team. He is also a dedicated working professional wedding photographer on the Sunshine Coast.
Born into a family of hoteliers he learnt the craft of hospitality early in life, but as a young adult chose to pursue a career of his own in interior design.
“I wanted to escape the long working hours of my family’s business and to further develop the inner artists I always knew was inside” Rich says.
Having a strong communication style and a lust to create Rich soon accomplished many high profile commercial interior installations such as the Brisbane Treasury Casino, Hamilton Island Resort just to name a couple.
Rich moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2003 to reinvent himself just one more time! Rich told us, “ I had always loved the creative expression photography allowed me to experience even as a young person struggling to find my true calling.” Combining people skills, an inner artist with a solid business acumen, Photography was always going to be Rich’s happy place.
Rich has worked hard to create a strong local photographic community on the Sunshine Coast and in conjunction with our Ted’s Maroochydore store he offers educational seminars and entertaining photography events weekly.
Rich is a regular speaker at local photographic clubs and regularly invited to speak at industry events held nationally on behalf of Ted’s Cameras. With industry training on all new camera releases, this makes Rich the perfect facilitator for your advanced or beginner photographic education.
