I'm a father-of-two, husband, dog-owner and photographer based in Scotland, but I love to travel and go where me and my camera is needed.
They say that photographers should specialise in one genre, but my problem is I love them all! Whether I'm shooting a wedding, portraits or even food and product, I apply the same care and attention to detail, whilst adding in my own sprinkle of artistry. I love collaborating on stories and creating unique captures of moments. If I hashtagged my style, it would probably be #familiar #warm #detailed and #experienced.
With a skill for snapping the unexpected, I create a story with my work. Whether you’re looking for a single image or an entire series, Richard Chalmers Photography can do it all
My preferred photographic style is reportage, candid, or documentary as I love the moments when people don't know you are taking a photo. I find it hard to categorise myself as I love all kinds of photography genres, and they all need different skills or techniques. I also like to get the client's input too as you never know where the next great idea could come from. When I grow up, I'd love to call myself an 'Adventure Photographer' (if that's a thing!).
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done a great many number of shoots.. From 3 year old or 90 year old birthdays to real estate and weddings. I treat each one with the same care an attention and I love to collaborate with the client to make sure that they get the photos they want, with some of their character included in the process.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I was published by Canon in Asia for my travel photography where I was invited to write an article for other photographers. I'm also a member of the SWPP.
