Hello & Welcome.
I'm Rick a Stockport (UK) based photographer.
It's been said that I have a thing for dramatic light.. and that would be true but I enjoy making photographs and capturing the real person more. A real laugh or reaction makes for a great portrait.
A lot of the work I do is in camera and with light, however it's the work done on set/location and the collaboration of everyone involved that makes it happen.
If you need portraits on location, at your place of work or in studio I have you covered. I have photographed a child for a client from 3 months until 7 years old, covered weddings/events and worked with countless people to provide head shots & portraits for them or their business.
During the last 6 years I have run events at a few local studios / spaces to help other photographers and now provide 121 training and workshops as well.
I look forward to meeting and working with you.
