Richard has worked as a professional wildlife and nature photographer since 1995. His abiding interest in wild creatures began as a young boy growing up on a farm in Kwa-Zulu Natal. He studied zoology and completed his BSc Honours degree in Entomology from the University of Natal. He is now based in Sandton in South Africa.

Richard travels widely in Southern Africa and Kenya to photograph wild creatures, birds and landscapes in the African wilderness. During the past few years he has also done over 180 hours of aerial photography in these regions.

Richard's images have appeared in National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, and Nature's Best magazines.

Richard's images are also used in South Africa and internationally in natural history books, wildlife calendars and advertising.

In the 1995 BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition he won first place in the Mammal Behaviour category and in 1997 won the Portraits category. He was one of the judges for the competition in 2004.

Richard was one of 40 photographers featured in the book The World's Top Photographers: Wildlife by Terry Hope (published by RotoVision UK 2002).
