Commercial & Corporate Photographers

I wanted some products photographed to sell on Amazon and found Richard (Rugfoot) photography via Bark. Working with Richard was a problem-free experience. He understood what I wanted and provided an exceptional service, above my expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard... More...

Portrait Photographers

Rich was very professional, helpful and is able to immediately put you at ease (I'd never had my photo taken professionally before). He forwarded thumbnails on the first day and the images I chose within 24 hours. Highly efficient. I've ended up with some lovely photos to use for my website, thank you very much. More...

Richard was superb to work with, we talked through the brief ahead of the event and then on the morning of it he arrived early for us to go through any possible changes.
Throughout the event he ensured that all of our speakers were covered both on stage but also with our branding which was key to our social media strategy. He emailed through a number of photos throughout the day for us to use on social immediately as well as sending through the final high res shots ahead of our agreed schedule.
His communication was spot on throughout the job and I could wholeheartedly recommend him.

Richard is very professional and his images really managed to capture the mood of the events. We have used him once as a solo photographer and once with an additional assistant providing a live twitter feed of the awards as they happened. Both times the service we received easily fulfilled our brief and was followed with a fast turn round all the images. We have used Richard twice now and we do hope to use him for the events again next year. More...

I cannot recommend Richard & Rugfoot highly enough.
He was helpful from the start with ideas and suggestions relating to my parents wedding.
He was at the venue early scouting the area for great back drops and was very discreet when taking pictures before, during and after the ceremony whilst mingling with guests.
The feedback from my parents and the guests regarding the final selected pictures have been nothing more than impressive.
Thank you

Last year Richard worked with our charity on a photography project on location in a conflict zone. Not only was Richard professional and hard working but it was a pleasure to work and travel with him. Plus, the shots produced were fantastic and have been used in various media marketing and promotional channels since. More...

Richard is very professional- so hard working and diligent. He consistently gets the atmosphere of the shoot and works well with the musicians and their team. He's been our in-house photographer at Bush Hall for a couple of years and the impact he's had on the venue is massive. More...

22 January 2017

Really wonderful all around experience. Richard took the time to go to our venue ahead of time and scout the area and plan a bit of our shoot ahead of time. It really felt like a top notch experience. His work is really well done and captures the authentic joy of the day and special moments shared! Really grateful for our experience and photos! More...

Me and my wife got married on the 6/12/2014. Richard was our photographer for the day and we were so happy we used him. He made the day even more special, he made us feel at total ease and the photos were absolutely beautiful. I have no doubt in my mind to recommend his services to anyone. If you want your most precious moments captured please use Richard you will not be disappointed. Best photographer I have ever met !!!!!!!!! More...

We run the official cinema tent (Pilton Palais) at Glastonbury Festival. We were privileged to have Rich working with us during the festival , summer of 2016, and we couldn't recommend him highly enough. 1) Prior to start of project he makes sure he understands the objectives, priorities and needs of client. He's an experienced , yet attentive photographer who carefully understands what you want. Clarity of vision is the name of the game with Rich, Not only does he have it in abundance, but also he'd help you achieve it. 2 ) He is a skilled, professional photographer and, in my opinion, what makes Rich a top 'event' photographer is his unique ability to capture that perfect moment amidst all the chaos. In the job he has done with us, he was able to deliver superb photos even when it was low light conditions (inside the tent), too muddy around the festival and too many people moving around everywhere. 3) He is a reliable professional and his professionalism is backed by his true passion for photography and his emotional intelligence. We are hoping that Rich would join us in future festivals to cover our events and we trust you will be just as happy if you have the good fortune to have him cover yours. More...

Our Charity have used Richard on Location in high risk conflict zones - his calm approach to the task and keen eye for capturing the real essence of the moment has given us a great visual resource to help us tell the story from the field. Highly recommend him, you won't be disappointed. More...

I have commissioned Richard for several jobs and have been consistently impressed with his reliability and creativity. He is extremely professional. The quality of his photos is excellent, as he has a rare knack of capturing key moments, and producing photos which really reflect the spirit of an event. Most recently, I used him to take informal, 'reportage' type photos at an awards ceremony and he did a brilliant job. His photos of the winners and audience members were engaging and beautifully composed. I have worked with other photographers on similar occasions and Richard stands out. I would highly recommend him and hope to have the opportunity to work with him again. More...


Well, first of all, you have to listen to your client - a great photo is a photo that your client loves. So there's that. But sometimes your client may not always know in advance what they want, which is where your photographic nouse comes in - you have to understand what the main subject of an event is (likely to be grandad, if it's grandad's 100th birthday), then you have to anticipate when something dramatic/emotional/amazing is going to happen, then you have to be ready (so, be in the right place, have your camera's settings right).

What will you be using the pictures for - website, brochure, social media, internal? What type of images do you want - dramatic, documentary, commercial, quirky, arty? What's the reason for the event - celebrating, boosting morale, selling to clients? Do you want to share these photos (this will determine their size, format and delivery platform)? Would you like me to do a book with the photos?

Pictures give people a lot of pleasure, and good pictures give them even more pleasure. This can take the form of allowing them to sell more of their product, giving them precious memories, bringing them closer to friends, family, staff or clients. Pictures can make them feel good about themselves, by making them realise they actually look good.

I love doing something I love and I love being my own boss.

1) I capture good pictures; 2) I capture the right pictures; 3) I'm reliable; 4) I'm easy to work with; 5) I communicate well; 6) I know my technology (making it easy for you).
