About our Family and Portrait photographers and the team behind it
Director and Founder of Image Exclusive
Richard’s early college days and apprenticeships in Lancashire were in a photographic industry of film and darkrooms. He worked alongside pioneering advertising photographers and was lucky to be involved in projects with major brands. He witnessed one of the first ever digital cameras being wheeled into the studio on a trolley and plugged into the mains! He also taught children for many years at outdoor adventure centres. The combination of the skills required for this and his photographic talent lead him into a natural career as a portrait photographer!
Moving to Yorkshire Richard joined a highly successful portrait studio that was to become the most dynamic portrait brand in the UK growing to over 100 studios worldwide. Taking all the years of incredible photographic design, experience and knowledge to his own personal, private, intimate studio. Image Exclusive was opened…
