Since first picking up a camera over 25 years ago, Richards focus has gradually become dance and bodies in motion. This focus took time to develop, and by the time his photography became an obsession about a decade ago, he’d already tried his hand as a full time musician, a recording studio engineer, a fiber optic network designer, a university teacher, and a cinematographer.
Dark and beautiful, it’s clear that shadows and form are a mainstay of his work. Check out his portfolio for a wonderful selection of projects, each having names such as “Cloud Busting”, “Angelus”, and “fille et meubles”.
