client list

Richard decided to head for the shores of sun and camels to get away from the ever gloomy weather of London, now based in Dubai he uses this central point to shoot all over the world.

At the age of 12 he picked up a an old Russian Range-finder Camera and was instantly hooked, went to Art College and found out why. He assisted many top photographers in London, made a lot of tea, swept a lot of floors, carried a ton of gear and most importantly got to know film very well. Richard shoots Digital & Film (neither is better just a means to an end: the idea is to choose the right tool for the right image)

Richards purpose in shooting is to have fun doing it and to always find some beauty at the end. Richard loves being part of the development and the evolution of an idea as it hits the subject matter. He loves images that appear simple and uncluttered, images that belie the thought and the recconaissance that preceded them. He loves to work with carefully applied focus, this is where the beauty lies. Sometimes in control of depth of field, where applicable,  in the shear of focus planes,  where a busy cluttered scene becomes simplified, where superfluous detail becomes calmed and where he finds opportunities to emphasise detail in different parts of an image. 

Richards client list consists of decades of work from the usual suspects being Leo Burnett, Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA, BBDO, Louay Rubino, Toyota, Hilton, Emirates Airlines, Citibank, Hyatt International and many many more.
