I am Rich Davis. I live in Batavia, Illinois with my lovely wife, Cathy, and started my photography career after retiring from 44 years as a Information Technology engineer. I worked at several companies, including Bell Labs, General Telephone & Electronics (GTE), International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT) and HSBC. I studied at the University of Illinois (Chicago) and the Illinois Institute of Technology. Besides real estate, portrait and events, I enjoy nature and travel photography. I also enjoy physical fitness (jogging and swimming), music (keyboard and guitar) and of course computers. I ran 8 Chicago marathons and once bicycled 900 miles with a friend from Chicago to Montreal Canada for Expo 67 (we took the train back).
