Bio:

I think of my process, in both the stills and moving images I make, as a story of creation. It’s about bringing an energy to each shoot and building a joyful, productive interaction between the client, the subject, the creative team and the camera lens. A shoot team should be a coalition and I apply that thought process throughout the fashion, beauty, music and travel images I create. 

Compelling light, captured emotions and moments of energy are themes that run through my work whether shooting mens and womenswear editorial campaigns, music videos and content for a growing catalogue of indie bands, commercial beauty projects or niche motorcycle brands who tune in to my other great passion, bikes.

Having my own production company means that alongside the image capture I can be involved from the foundation of a shoot upwards. Production values are a key part of the journey; from breaking down the creative brief, casting, story boarding, location hunting and grooming elements, tight, personalised production enables me to tell the best story possible. 

My studio sessions always feature one other element – Lucille, my small but scene stealing Boston Terrier. In fact she has her own successful modelling career, and online presence. As her agent would put it “she’s kind of a big deal”.

Background: 

Studying at Central St. Martin’s College with a passion for life drawing and portraits, Richard started photographing his subjects for reference, but the photographic process soon took over as his main focus. 

His unequivocal talent for encapsulating people’s essence through the lens caught the attention of the College’s fashion department, who looked to push his talent in that direction. This provided a new means of experimenting with imagery. 

With this newfound love for photography, Richard was keen to develop his expertise in this field and joined The London College of Fashion studying styling and photography, leading onto assisting some of the biggest names in fashion and beauty, including Rankin, Nick Knight, & Clive Arrowsmith.
