Patients, family members and staff have provided wonderful feedback on his photography. It is always a pleasure to do work with Rich!” – Lori H., Senior Interior Design Project Manager

“Rich is a very talented and respected fine art photographer whom I have had the pleasure to work with on several healthcare projects over the years. His inspirational images are beautiful compositions that serve as healing art in the healthcare environment.” - Peggy N., Interior Designer, FIIDA, AAHID, EDAC, NCIDQ

“On one occasion, I had a Client request “local photography” and I challenged Rich to show me something different than what everyone is used to seeing when they think of Greenville, SC photography. His images were fantastic! We even played with the colorization and made them sepia-toned to compliment the commercial interior spaces we were working to update. The Client keeps “finding” more places to place new artwork and feels comfortable enough to call Rich directly. Rich is very respectful of Interior Designers and always calls me to review the concept anyways. He is multi-talented, trustworthy, and a pleasure to work with!” – Jeanine R., Interior Designer

Rich is a respected member of our local design community, and in my experience, he is talented, dependable, and willing to go the extra mile. I have worked with many artists in my field, and Rich stands out for his creativity and his ability to quickly understand our design concepts. He works well with clients and designers throughout all phases of a project, and is always willing to provide assistance. I have seen first-hand his work add meaning and transformation to a project. Rich is deeply committed to what he does and it shows!” – Andrea K., Interior Designer

“My experience with Rich Nicoloff at Journey Fine Art has been wonderful. I stumbled across Rich’s website while doing research for my first big healthcare design job. I was looking for photos of nature to place in patient rooms. I absolutely fell in love with Rich’s work! His photos on the website are so crisp and clean. You wonder if they will be that good enlarged and/or printed on different materials. I selected some of Rich’s photos to be printed on aluminum. And although they are not large photos, they literally pop off the walls and draw you right in to the scene. The patients and staff really like them. In the process of ordering and receiving, we had a little glitch. Rich was quick to respond and fix the problem. He was very professional throughout the entire process, yet caring and concerned. Rich states that his goal is to create ‘healing photography’ That he does, and he does it well!” – Stephanie C., Interior Designer, IIDA Associate

“Rich collaborated with me on image content for two different children’s healthcare projects for two different clients. Both were a great success. Rich responds quickly, even when the requirements are rigorous: very large image sizes, specific colors from nature, specific image content, etc. Rich helped bring the design vision to life by collaborating and offering creative solutions, some of which included taking custom shots to get the look and colors we needed. Rich provides the highest level of service, beautiful creative content and is a pleasure to work with.” – Paul B., Environmental Graphic Designer

“Lake Junaluska Conference Center began renovating one of our hotels in 2012.  Part of the renovation included the amazing custom black and white images of the Lake Junaluska campus featured in each guest room.  Rich’s photography adds a special personal touch to the hotel and are popular with our guests.  I will definitely work with Rich again on future projects.” – Jennifer M., Director of Program Ministry

“Rich provided images for an Orthopaedic Wing renovation in Monroe, North Carolina for me. He personally handled all of the framing and installation as well as assisting me with the selection of all of the images and sizing. Rich is passionate about his work and this is evident in the fantastic end result!” – Cathy G., Interior Designer

“When one has to unexpectedly be at a place like MD 360 for their child’s injury and subsequent therapy……it sure is nice to sit and reflect over beautiful photography works that I was happy to confirm are your works! Very calming and reassuring and simply beautiful work! As a nurse , I am well aware of the need for the exact environment your photography helps create. Well done Rich Nicoloff. Thank you for those beautiful works of art.” – Markley H.
