Hey there, my name is Richard, husband, dad of 1 boy and I enjoy taking pictures.
I also have 2 cats, "Plinko" & "Stealth"
I am a full time photographer & musician, I have had the pleasure of working with some brilliant people over the last 12 years, providing sound engineering and hire services after relocating from London to Teesside.
I bought my first digital camera back in 2005 whilst on tour with a band, and took many pictures of the bands I was working with, like Arctic Monkeys, Enter Shikari, James Arthur, 36 Crazyfists & Machine Head, I'll be honest, it was chaos.
After 10 years of taking pictures of my growing family, people hitting drums and strumming guitars, I decided to dedicate more of my time to learning about and honing my camera skills. Eventually anyone who owns a "fancy" camera gets asked to take pictures of a wedding, usually I would decline, on this occasion however I decided to take the up the challenge.
Fast forward a few years & now I find myself with an ever growing collection of cameras, lenses, lighting and all sorts of photo stuff.
Anyway, that is enough about me I think, you'll find me in the studio or out and about with my camera.
