A lifelong photojournalist and commercial photographer, Richard Bell started his career at Kent State University with a degree in Journalism.

Leaving the newspaper business, Richard started his own commercial photography business, “The Bing Group,” which produced print advertising for business uses. Concurrently he was Senior Lecturer at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, teaching documentary photography.
