Richard has been a landscape photographer since 2012. Living on the very edge of Dartmoor has meant that he has spent most of his spare time, when not at work as a vet or trail running, scouting the National Park for new locations or compositions.
Dartmoor is very much a working landscape with much of it devoted to farming in one way or another, and although best known for its tors and perhaps its prison, there is much more to this National Park than meets the eye. The collection of 40 images on display ranges from snowy scenes, colourful sunrises, and rolling farmland to flowing rivers.
Of particular interest to Richard are misty and foggy conditions, perhaps not only for their visual splendour but also for the challenge - to be in the right place at the right time. He also enjoys capturing scenes as panoramics.
Many of his fellow photographers have encouraged and supported him in presenting his extensive body of work as an exhibition.
Richard said, "Photographers often say that curation is the most challenging aspect for them, when exhibiting their work." He certainly agrees. "It can be hard to choose your favourite images and be objective but also perhaps have your audience in mind too. There is much more to Dartmoor than just big chunks of granite."
This is the culmination of his work and a celebration of perhaps the lesser known areas of both the uplands and lowlands.
He has had the kind support of L-Type who have sponsored the production of some fantastic 3x2 and panoramic 400dpi C-Type prints (by Lumejet printing) which are also on sale both at the exhibition and online.

The exhibition will run until Spring 2019.
The National Park Visitor Centre, Princetown, is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10.00 -15.30
