    Background
    From an early age, Richard has always had an interest in photography but was just a ‘snapper’ whilst on holidays. Around the age of 18, he decided to learn black and white film photography and converted a room in his house into a darkroom to process and enlarge the photos he’d taken (without much success!). In 2005, Richard bought his first digital SLR camera with the objective to learn more about photography and started heading out into the Peak District. After a steep learning curve and many mistakes, Richard started producing work that he was getting happy with. This progressed for a few years to get where he is today. Although still working full time, it is Richards dream to be able to be a full time landscape photographer.
