This is me. Not a "we" or an "us", it's just me and my camera and a real person behind this website and service. I'm also the person writing this, so there's no third-person "Richard is an award-winning photographer based in Scotland with over 20 years photography experience", even though that's true. It's more like, I'm a photographer, passionate about taking on your next project or photographing your wedding and sat here with a tea while you have a look around.
Apart from photography, I have also worked in the UK Events Industry since 2000, before moving to Asia in 2012 where I stayed for 8 years. I'm very lucky that my work takes me all over the world to see and photograph many of my adventures and share with others (check out my Instagram). I have now returned to Scotland with my wife, two children and rescue dog (who sometimes lets me photograph her if there's a possibility of treats!).
My preferred photographic style is reportage, candid, or documentary as I love the moments when people don't know you are taking a photo. I find it hard to categorise myself as I love all kinds of photography genres, and they all need different skills or techniques. I also like to get the client's input too as you never know where the next great idea could come from. When I grow up, I'd love to call myself an 'Adventure Photographer' (if that's a thing!).
I am an exclusive photographer for iStock Getty Images, as well as published by Canon's EOS World Magazine. I also like drinking tea, having time with the family, and taking the dog for a walk (with a camera).
