A long-time contributor to Photo Life magazine, Richard pursues photography as a medium of visual expression. He is best known for his unique vision with a personal style characterized by a strong sense of composition, colour and the use of light—combining an architectural love of geometry, pattern and texture with a painter's sensitivity to colour, light and composition.
Well known for sharing his enthusiasm, creative vision and passion for the medium, Richard continues to inspire participants with his annual photography and visual design workshops in his native Kingston, Ontario since 1990. He also conducts workshops, tours, and seminars around the world, including Cuba, Mexico, Sicily, Venice, Tuscany, Provence, Seattle, San Francisco, New York City, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
Widely exhibited in both public and commercial galleries, including the Agnes Etherington Art Gallery, and the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Art. Images by Richard have appeared in numerous periodicals, with portfolios, essays and articles published in Camera Canada, Photo Digest, Photo Selection, Photo Life, Best of Photography Annual, Wood Le Bois, Wood Design & Building, Canadian Interiors, and Queen’s Quarterly.
