Richard is of Portuguese descendant, born and bred in England. He is 49 and lives and works in London - IT is his trade.
His love for photography really took off in 2006 which is when he left behind his compact camera, which he says never really did pass muster and upgraded to a Nikon SLR camera. He uses Nikkor and Sigma lenses. Richard was then introduced to Flickr and since then has been very shutter happy, taking photographs of anything from people to insects to animals and sunsets.
Preferring people shots, Street Photography is favourite genre. In his spare time, Richard has become accustomed to approaching strangers who, on the whole, happily oblige... so, as long as they continue to say yes, he will continue to ask! Richard loves that challenge.
