Originally from Anchorage, Richard Beltzer lives in Chicago and has built a local, loyal following through his work as a Mixologist and Photographer. His curiosity and appreciation for honest experiences make him equally suited to both fields.
As brand ambassador for Santa Teresa 1796, a “bold and elegant rum”, Richard contributes to their ongoing effort to shape the drinks landscape with their well crafted product.
His steady presence as the Head Bartender at Bad Hunter — a West Loop veg-forward establishment and winner of TimeOut Chicago’s ‘Best Bar-Restaurant Crossover’ — allows Richard to combine his love for authentic, humble hospitality with his enthusiasm for the visual arts.
Richard is available for portrait assignments as well as event photography; weddings, celebrations, violin recitals and corporate gatherings.
