He has organized, curated and served as a consultant for important exhibitions nationally and internationally.

Ricardo also conducted a series of preparatory photography portfolio presentation and image editing workshops in 2016 in Santa Clara, Matanzas and Havana Provinces UNEAC (National Union of Writers and Visual Artists of Cuba) Centers and Conversatorios and Masters Photography Images and Art Videos Presentations sponsored by FotoFest International and Foundation for Culture and Society.
