Being born in London, England left me little choice to be anything other than a romantic at heart. My work has been described as fashionable, timeless and emotive.
I have a passion for film, antique cameras, handmade prints and compelled by an inextinguishable pursuit for soulful photography and the artful life.

I’m not usually given to self trumpet blowing but this email from Jenn really hit home………..
I love them so very much! Thanks for everything Richard – the pictures are beyond what I could have hoped for and capture what I loved most about the day. Nathan and I plan on looking through them together tonight (though I cheated and already scrolled through on my lunch break at work!) over a bottle of champagne.
Thank you again – if only getting married wasn’t a once in a lifetime thing so that we could have more photos done with you. We’ll just have to figure something out!
many thanks to the lovely ladies of Southern Protocol
Adriana is one of my most favorite models (see previous post) and yes this is a real engagement session!
this is the second occasion where my buddy Parker J and I have been commissioned by a magazine to have a play date to be featured as a fashion editorial, the first being here for Smitten Magazine and this one being for Inspire Magazine, our only brief was to do our thing, so we loaded up with our top team, make up and hair stylist Sara Egri and models Adriana and Casey. It became very apparent that the star of the show was R. Brooke Priddy of A Ship To Shore’s truely fantastic bespoke dresses, each dress is custom designed, totally handmade and each a work of art.
Direction for the shoot became very clear as the whole team focused on those incredible gowns, for the models it was “wearing” the dresses and allowing them to move and flow as Brooke intended, for Sara it was creating hair and make up that set the mood and Parker and I, well we just just did our thing………See Parker’s photographs here
Clothes: Ship to Shore
tech note: All images shot at number 12.1

“the only time success comes before work is in the dictionary” (Vidal Sassoon) so I highly recommend starting 2014 on the right note towards to moving forward in your art + business by attending this years Mystic Seminars.
In 2013 I’ve taken my message of “Being a first rate version of you and not a second rate version of someone else” to Dallas and Atlanta and extremely excited to be sharing and learning at Mystic 2014.
I intend to make 2014 a remarkable year, how about you?

I’ve know Chef Paul, formerly the executive chef at Longview Country Club for several years now and photographed and eaten his food on several occasions and I can safely say that his new venture
Heritage Food and Drink in Waxhaw is unequivocally the best farm to table food in the region! Don’t take my word for it, book, eat and be amazed………
