Richard is fantastic to work with and we have always been delighted with what he has produced for us. He is often required to operate in pressurised conditions such as dress rehearsals, where there is only once chance to get the shot and he must turn around the job overnight.

Despite these restrictions, Richard always perfectly captures the essence of the subject and brings it to life. I know that when I book him for a job, we'll get exactly what we need, and more.

Theatre photography is one of my first loves as I actually studied theatre at university prior to starting my career as a professional photographer. This gives me a unique perspective when photographing productions as I approach the subject as someone who has a love of theatre and appreciation of the subject. This helps inform my theatre photography, so rather just just approach it as PR shoot, my aim is to create images which capture the essence of the production and convey a sense of what it is about.

In the past 16 years I worked with most of the leading theatre and opera companies in Scotland including the Citizens, the National Theatre of Scotland, the Royal Lyceum, the Traverse, The Tron and Scottish Opera. I also work with touring companies such as Grid Iron and Rapture.

As well as production photography, I am also regularly asked to produce publicity images for productions, either to a brief or from my own concept. I am used to accommodating a wide range of budgets so please feel to call if you have any ideas which you would like to discuss.
