Richard Duval
Wine Photographer

Noted wine photographer Richard Duval captures vivid wine imagery for regional and national wine media, wine marketing organizations and an ever-growing number of wineries in the Pacific Northwest. He is entering his 15th year as lead photographer for the Auction of Washington Wines.

His work appears in Great Northwest Wine, Northwest Wine Report, Oregon Wine Press as well as being steady contributor to Wine Business Monthly, Good Fruit Grower, Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator and numerous blogs and wine sites. Chateau Ste. Michelle selected his image of its iconic chateau for the cover of its commemorative 50th anniversary book. Signature Wines and Wineries of Washington chose his image of Sagemoor Vineyard for its cover. His images are frequently used by Washington’s state and regional wine marketing guides for Walla Walla, Woodinville, Yakima Valley, Lake Chelan and Red Mountain.

On the rare occasions he is not capturing the magic of the wine experience, his musical and technical work has appeared in the New York Times; the Wall Street Journal; The Financial Times, Fortune and numerous news websites.

Duval graduated from Washington State University with a degree in journalism which served him well as a high school teacher before he went into public relations and marketing communications for a slew of high-tech companies and non-profit organizations in the Seattle
area for nearly three decades.
