let me introduce myself, my name is RICHARD G. SANTOMAURO and I have been
in the taxidermy business for over 35 years. I own a full service taxidermy
studio located in Wall, New Jersey. I started doing taxidermy on a part
time basis, but that only lasted one year, from that day till now I have
been improving my skills with competition, seminars, and classes at Piedmont
collage. I also try to keep up on the newest products and services offered.
At the present time I post on four sites on the Internet with questions
and answers and photos to help customers become aware of what things should
look like. Some of my high-end customers have been Ralph Lauren stores
in Manhattan New York and Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills California, Saks
Fifth Ave in Manhattan and Paramount Pictures studio working out of Manhattan
New York. I also work for thousands of regular guys and gals doing their
trophies that they take all over the world. In my shop I try to have as
fast a turnaround time as possibly to keep my customers happy. I
am a member of the National Taxidermy Association, Garden State Taxidermy
association, NRA just to name a few. I have also taught classes on taxidermy
in the 80's out of my taxidermy shop.
Awards I have won in taxidermy competition:
1987 Mammal 1st place New Jersey taxidermy association
– Bobcat with a turkey
1987 Deer 1st place New Jersey taxidermy association
– Shoulder mount whitetail deer
1987 Duck 1st place Middletown wildfowl competition

1988 Game bird 1st place New Jersey taxidermy

1988 Deer 2nd place New Jersey taxidermy association

1988 Game bird 2nd place New Jersey taxidermy
association – Ring neck pheasant
1988 Small mammal 3rd place New Jersey taxidermy

I love my job and I believe the taxidermy work that I do should show
that. My specialties are Waterfowl and Bird Taxidermy, Deer Taxidermy,
Life-size Mammals and African Taxidermy but I do the full line of work
necessary to keep the customer happy and coming back with friends.
Stop in or call and I will be happy to spend time with you explaining
what should be done before the hunt or fishing trip whether local or out
side of the USA borders. I am usually working in my shop 5-7 days a week
and if I’m not there, call me and leave a message and I will return your
call as soon as I return.
Thank you for visiting my web site and good luck on your next adventure.
