“FABULOUS! I absolutely loved every minute of working with Richard. He is charming, funny, flattering, and works hard to create great shots. He had great comms before hand, came prepared with plenty of ideas but was also up for suggestion, and is fun through and through. Extremely highly recommended!”
Really chuffed!Learn More
Well I was lucky enough to be invited to shoot the Trend Catwalk Show at London Fashion Weekend on 24 February 2013.
The photographers had a briefing beforehand before being given passes to get into the show and grab our places in the pit. I ended up shooting something like 450 images from which I selected a few ones I like, which are now in a separate portfolio called, amazingly, London Fashion Weekend 2013.

I finally managed to arrange a shoot with the fabulous Elle Black earlier this week at her Victorian house in London, just before she moved out.
As expected, we had great fun with the shoot despite my forgetting to take my ringflash and with one of the modelling lamps refusing to work.
I will definitely work with Elle again: she’s a consummate professional and a great person … and she also writes good poetry too!Learn More
It’s been a while since I updated, but I’m pleased to be able to say that I’m finally shooting the fabulous Elle Black soon. We’ve been trying to arrange something for over a year now so it’s good to finally get something in the diary.
Also in the diary is London Fashion Weekend: yes, I’ve been invited to do a catwalk shoot at the Vodafone London Fashion Weekend by Canon. I’m really looking forward to shooting some more fashion as it’s been a while.
And finally, as always I’m buying props for my kit bag. This includes the latest purchases: some Pleaser Domina 101 leather mules in a couple of different sizes and yet more Jimmy Choos. I did a quick stocktake this evening and the non-Jimmy Choos are pictured below. Maybe I should stop buying shoes for a while?
Well I’d just bought another ring flash adaptor for fashion/portraiture stuff which arrived on Saturday, so when I went to collect it, I had an unstructured shoot with an old friend and alternative model, Alexa Star.
Just mucking about really for an hour or so but we got some fun images, which are in the Lifestyle portfolio:Learn More
So to celebrate my 50th birthday – no, really – I decided to ride Route 66 from Chicago to LA on a Harley.
Full details of my trip can be found on this blog of mine.
I’d thought about taking a model along, but the strenuous schedule – just under 3,000 miles (with detours to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas) in 11 days – wouldn’t have allowed sufficient time for setting up the shots properly, so I went alone. And what an epic adventure it was!
One or two snaps have found their way into the Scenic portfolio.…
