richard o’connell, ba (hons) visual communication (photography)

richard was given a camera at the age of 5 and never looked back. Even though his career went in a different direction, when the opportunity was right he completed a degree in Photography and finally decided to start a career doing something he loved.

richard is happiest when taking photos of people. His natural people skills shine through, many of his subjects have become friends, and his work captures the real you in a unique way.

High contrast, black and white, Hollywood Glamour and 1940s are among richard’s favourite genres, as you can see in his work. His style centres around putting the model at ease and injecting humour and fun into a shoot to create a natural and beautiful result, and one which the subject thoroughly enjoys being a part of.


Whether it’s fun family images you’re after, newborn baby, corporate headshots, boudoir or fashion pictures, richard has many years experience capturing that moment or look.


richard is experienced in shooting model portfolio’s for both new models looking to break into the industry and experienced models wanting a new look.
