Richard has been taking photographs since 2008, the year the iPhone came out. The photography came out of running; runners, rather like seafarers and pilots have privileged access, they see things at very odd times, in all weathers and at unusual times of the day and the night. A sixty minute run might produce 20 pictures by which time it has become an eighty minute run. The iPhone is a companion on all runs, providing at least the starting point for many shots, which are later taken with a more sophisticated camera.
Many of these shots are put out daily on Twitter and Instagram and through various Facebook Groups. If there is a common theme, it is to celebrate the area. Whatever the subject, rarely a day goes past, that Richard does not find something interesting and noteworthy to shoot.
When not taking photographs or running, Richard is building web sites or designing Apps.
