About


Welcome and thanks for stopping by. For the past 30 plus years photography has been a love of mine that continues to grow. As you may have noticed from my portfolio, I have a particular soft spot for photographing people. This includes, young and old, weddings and fashion / modeling photography.

Recently I have been going back to my roots and publishing a lot more photos in black and white. Today however, creating a black and white photo is a lot easier using Lightroom and Photoshop compared to the chemicals of a darkroom.

My first camera was a Zeiss Ikon Stuttgart “nettar” camera made in 1957 (it was my father’s, who gave it to me in the 1970s). From there I shot a number of years with a Pentax until purchasing a Canon 7E. I have continued to support Canon where today the equipment I use includes a Canon 5D Mark II and 30D and a number of primes (24L, 50L, 85L, 135L, 200L, 400L). The most recent addition has been Canon’s new 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II. As to lighting, I use the Elinchrom Ranger AS Speed packs and accessories.

Thanks again for stopping by. All comments and critiques are encouraged

Kind regards,
Richard

    Thanks for your great effort and kind reply.
