2017 St Louis Camera Club  - Rita Chu

A Photographic Journey into Abstract Forms

Rita Chu is an amateur photographer honing her skills since 2008 when she bought her first DLSR.  Although Rita is drawn to raw and remote landscapes, she also appreciates creature comforts such as air conditioning, heat, and espressos. The process of making a picture serves as an outer expression for Rita’s inner monitoring.  Rita feels fortunate to have stumbled across photography and the different faces and places the experiences have brought to her life.

Rita possess dedication, persistence, and an ability to see things differently.  Her photographic education comes from workshops, mentorships, and personal experimentation.
