Born in New York State, USA, Rickey Rogers was an oilfield geologist in Egypt before turning his passion for photography into his livelihood. Launching his second career as a “backpacker with a Leica,” Rickey eventually landed in Bolivia in 1986 where he founded the country’s first news picture agency and began freelancing for Reuters, among other clients. He then became Reuters’ chief photographer for Latin America, based first in Buenos Aires, then Sao Paulo, and finally Miami. He took over North America Pictures for Reuters as well in 2015, when he moved to New York. Since January 2017, Rickey has been the global editor for Reuters Pictures, based in London.
