Rita Swinford grew up in a place that remarkably has not changed very much despite being one of the most crowded places on the East Coast—on her parent's home in Long Island. She studied biology and later medicine with a beginning interest in photography. Emerging with a doctorate in nephrology she moved to the South West and began a career in academics. Escaping often from the city to maintain a sense of balance, she wandered along coastal Texas and became an explorer/backpacker taking workshops by Bruce Barnbaum, Jay Dusard, Stu Levy, and Don Kirby.
Rita's photography is landscape oriented, concentrating on her home city Houston and Long Island. Rita met her husband in 1998 and 21 years later she and Brian, a true, but tested Bears Fan and Houston City detective, remain in Houston.
