About Rich Baum
Rich Baum is a Northern California-based professional photographer with experience shooting a broad range of subjects including real estate, sporting events, weddings and executive head shots. Whether producing images for Fortune 500 companies, small locally-owned businesses or a bride and groom on the day, Baum’s mission remains the same: to exquisitely capture the subject matter’s true essence and spirit, while also providing for outstanding service and a truly fun experience.
Baum began his career as a prop master in Hollywood, working on television commercials and a number of well-known films including “Hoosiers,” “Gandhi,” “Beaches” and “The Naked Gun.” Over the course of twenty-five years working in the film business, Baum developed a keen eye for detail, framing and composition – skills that would serve him well when he transitioned to professional photography more than a decade ago.
A resident of Fair Oaks, California Baum also loves traveling, windsurfing, snowboarding and spending time with his wife Melissa and teenage children, Taylor and Sidney.
