Rico is a photographer, cinematographer, and musician, someone who recognizes and appreciates a moment, a scene, and a sound.
"As a kid, I was faced with the challenge of embracing the new, a new culture, new people, a new language. I developed quickly the desire to treasure the moments as they passed. I love photography because I am able to capture memories, nostalgia, a person and place as they are in one singular moment. This is what I bring to my work".
Rico was born in Monterrey, Mexico. At the age of 3, Rico and his family immigrated to Louisiana where he spent most of his childhood making short video skits on his father's Sony Hi8 handy cam. In 2003, the Andrade family moved to Bethesda, Maryland where his father started Pixeldust Studios.
