About Rich Zimmermann

Rich Zimmermann is an internationally collected photographer based in Milwaukee,Wisconsin.  

Since 1971, I have photographed the Milwaukee area music scene.  In addition to that, I have photographed many weddings and done many portraits.  Some of my favorite portraiture has been that of Indy car drivers in pit lane and on the grid at racetracks around Wisconsin.  The excitement and adrenaline rush I get photographing on pit lane is equivalent to the fun and excitement of photographing musicians on stage or backstage!
