Paige Ricks is a photographer and writer based in Oakland, California. With her imagery, Paige's goal is to always tell stories with vibrant color.

Her photographic style of capturing the color and mood of a scene transcends into her fashion photography, which she conceptualizes, styles and photographs. Paige's aesthetic is bold and expressive -- by mainly shooting in natural light she is able to manipulate light to show her subjects in a constant elevated air. With a special interest in documenting people, places and cultures, Paige’s documentary work ranges from photographing inmates inside San Quentin State Prison to women beer brewers in Uganda.

She graduated with a Master's of Fine Art degree in photography from the Academy of Art University. Paige also has a Master's degree from UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and a Bachelor's degree from California State University at Fresno.
