About Richard

It was at age five that Richard found himself running a slide projector. His job was to advance the deck for his father, an outdoorsman and photographer who would regale the local mountaineering community with tales and imagery brought back from his adventures. Seeing nature through his father’s lens, Richard developed an eye for the vast and an understanding of scale.

As he grew, so did his love of cars & motorsport. These interests were engendered by family, who offered a look into that world — and he could take his camera there. Richard’s family and friends instilled the belief that cars are best appreciated through knowledge of their inner workings, and this idea his vision; his photography began to bear the essence of his understanding of each car. Richard honed his image-making skills at The Savannah College of Art and Design, and it was at a track just down the road that someone first asked, “can I buy those photos?”

Post-college years spent working on feature films extended Richard’s technical knowledge from the world of cars into the world of cameras. These skills became complementary, uniting production experience with an innate appreciation for a car in detail...the keys to a good photograph. The result is a seamless integration which yields high-energy, atmospheric imagery.

From tracks and car events in the Southern US, work in automotive photography has led him around the world to create campaigns and social libraries for some of the world’s most recognizable automotive brands including Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, and Pagani Automobili.

Richard resides downtown Los Angeles, though when not on the road you’ll frequently find him roving under the clear skies of Lake Tahoe, camera in tow, III.
