Richard Thompson III, known to some as RVT3, joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in New Orleans with a passion for music, to pursuing an education in the arts at SCAD, to living in LA shooting some of the most luxurious and well designed automobiles on the planet, and forming long lasting working relationships with companies like Mercedes-Benz. Although he grew up with Art Teacher for a Mom, and was well versed in many mediums at a young age, Richard was inspired mostly by music and the amazing scene around him in his home town of New Orleans. Even when he left to go further pursue graphic design, and later other forms of media capture in Savanah, he made frequent trips back to work at a music bar and continue to be around the West African inspired funk that New Orleans offered. But later, while working on a local film set, he realized that if he really wanted to create his own work it was time for him to move to LA and pursue his passion. The rest is history, with a long client list to back it up. During our conversation we talk about how he began to get his foot in the door in the automotive photography industry, the techniques and work ethic that set him apart, how he continues to stay inspired and evolve as an artist, and the daily rituals he used to keep moving forward.
