Peter Richards – NMU Graduate travels the world

A paramedic-in-training with a killer eye for detail, Peter Richards graduated from Northern Michigan University with a B.F.A. in photography. Since then, he has traveled the world working as an instructor and photographer for National Geographic’s Student Expeditions program. A man with many accomplishments as well as goals, Richards has climbed Africa’s highest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, has learned to speak Kiswahili and is in the process of publishing a book. This book will focus on the lives of orphans in 15 countries worldwide, including those of the Himalayas and Mexico. When he is not traveling Richards spends his time in both Marquette and Glen Arbor, Michigan relaxing, rock climbing, sailing, and of course, taking pictures. Richards is currently being featured at Marquette’s Oasis Gallery on Washington Street; the exhibit will be up until Oct. 3.
