What differentiates a great event photographer from the rest
A range of qualities is required to create the best possible event photography. People and photography skills combine with the ability to focus during live action situation as it unfolds. Hence while a multitude of things may be taking place a great event photographer will filter out all the distractions and instantly identify and capture the most captivating image-worthy moments.
Years of experience photographing major national events
I have honed my skills over the years photographing Glastonbury Festival and other major news events such as London Fashion Week for leading news agency Rex (Features) Shutterstock. Travelling across multiple continents I have photographed local people, capturing atmosphere and engaging with people and personalities. As a result engendered in me is an instinct for an interesting situation and the ability to tell a story through compelling imagery. This is all underpinned with strong people skills and professionalism. I am happy either interacting with subjects when appropriate and creating engaging photography with them, or working low profile for more candid images.
A visual story of your event from start to finish
I will tell a visual story about your event from the moment the doors open and the first arrivals make their appearance, being in the right place at the right time to capture the action as well as the more relaxed scenes, and being there until the sun goes down and the night life comes out
“Richard was great to work with when I hired him for The Big Egg Hunt. He really understood the brief and its possibilities, and brought some great ideas for the images which really made the most of the character across the range of eggs we used for the shoot. The media loved the images and we were very happy with the extensive editorial coverage that we received.”
