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 humbled that my efforts have been awarded internationally in competitions which include the highly prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

When not behind the camera I enjoy writing about wildlife photography and all that goes with it, regularly contributing to magazines and writing for my own blog as well as other websites, where previous clients include Nikon Europe, the Eden Channel and one of the UK's biggest camera retailers, WEX Photographic. And if I'm not doing any of that, I'm working behind cameras of a different breed in the media industry.

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

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...
