Harry Richards is a London based People Photographer
Thanks for taking a lap around my site. I hope you enjoy my Portrait & Event Photography galleries and find enough information to pique your interest. As well as corporate and private events of all shapes and sizes, I regularly shoot portraits for editorial, promotional and personal use. You’ll find me calm and reliable with good communication skills. Most events are one offs and I always aim to exceed client expectations. I carefully follow the brief and use my initiative where instructed. I dress and conduct myself in a proper manner for the occasion. I’m playing the long game and enjoy establishing good working relationships with clients.
Reactive vs. Proactive Event Photographer
My natural approach is to react to moments and discretely capture your event in all its glory. My low key technique is a good match for receptions and conferences where minimal disruption is desirable. I have a flexible attitude and enjoy a challenge. However, there’ll be times where group photos and awards staging benefit from a little coordination. I have extensive professional experience working with a range of personalities, from CEO’s and Public Figures to Stage Managers and Event Coordinators. I’ll be proactive where needed and offer guidance when appropriate. For example, my competitive Premium Event Rate for Awards Ceremonies includes early arrival for this very purpose.
Portrait Photography Services
I shoot Corporate Portraits and Headshots using an optional large or small portable studio. I’m quite used to matching the work of previous photographers for continuity or can recommend how you might get the best results using your workplace. If it’s my first time taking portraits of your team, it’s normal to go into detail about usage formats and if you need consistent replication between sites. For Family Portraits, I actively encourage moving targets! Walks in the park or adventure days away from home. The great outdoors helps bring everyone out of their shells, kids and adults alike! People come to life when they’re simply being themselves.
My rates start from just £250. I’m based near Kings Cross and so Central London jobs are a breeze.
Harry is an award winning London Photographer with 18 years of professional experience. A competitive, boutique operation, he photographs events of all shapes sizes around the UK and overseas.
“I grew up in Dorset and Wales and cut my teeth making films. Narratives are my catnip and I’d love to get lost in your event with my camera. I live in London with my two moggies who help with the editing. I thoroughly enjoy the scope of People Photography, from Weddings to Event and Portraits, there’s a common approach but a broad variety of exciting challenges. Remaining calm sets everyone at ease and makes for happy photographs!
I’ll be sure to give you the opportunity to specify what’s important to you and what’s not. On the day of your Event, you can relax about the photography and know you’re in safe hands. Please do get in touch with any questions.
You’ll get a warm reply.”
SILENT PHOTO NINJA
When everyone is holding their breath, it only takes a ‘click’ to break the atmosphere. Harry wears quiet shoes and uses state of the art mirrorless cameras to photograph in silence. Low light performance has advanced so far in recent years that flash is rarely used. Currently investigating the possibility of an invisibility cloak from Hogwarts.
MULTI AWARD WINNING
As of 2020, the WPJA has awarded Harry 27 winning pictures and a Top 10 global title. He’s a Fearless award winner and London Photographer Finalist in the 2019 Wedding Industry Awards. Winning snapshots are exciting but your event photography is about telling the story on many levels to create a complete picture!
