During his teenager period, photography was only a hobby to Ricky. He has been gaining his touch and angle perspective through his experience in the field since high school. When Ricky realized that photography was more than just a hobby, he started attending lots of photography seminars, workshops and short courses in Jakarta and Surabaya.
He moved to Bali in 2000 and started working as a freelance photographer. Later on, he improved his skill and became more focus and professional.
Ricky met with Nico who shared the same interest in photography. After staying for 17 years in Germany, Nico returned to his home land to share his business in the country. Ricky & Nico then came to an idea to combine their skills, abilities, talents and art to establish Ricky & Co Photography. Jl. Kerobokan Kelod No. 21, Kuta, Bali was the first official office.
