My love of wildlife means I spend as much time as I can in the more rural parts of the country or, at any given chance, the more distant parts of the world in pursuit of my next photo. This passion, inspired in a big way from growing up watching the BBCs incredible wildlife documentaries, has taken me to some beautiful places and I'm delighted my efforts have seen me awarded in various competitions including the highly prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPOTY), the British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) and the Windland Smith Rice Natures Best Photography, as well as being published in various forms of media both nationally and internationally.

As a social person who enjoys spending time with like minded people and talking shop, I'm very active on my Facebook Page and Twitter @RichardpPhoto.

And when not behind the camera? I'm either behind the computer, writing for both my own blog and others upon request, which have included Nikon Europe and WEX Photographic. I also enjoy writing for and contributing to photographic magazines. And if I'm not doing any of that, I'm working behind cameras of a different breed in the media industry. I've also enjoyed being on the judging panel for competitions run by both Nikon and the BBCs Countryfile, where I appeared on the tv show as a short list judge three years running after previously winning the competition.

Again, I'm always happy to talk shop so either drop me a line on the various social media outlets or even send me a good old fashioned email!

For any image use requirements, please do get in touch. Thank you for visiting, happy shooting and maybe I'll see you out in the field one day...
