Richard was born in Chicago.
After studying film and photography, he decided to embark on the adventures of being a freelance fashion photographer.
From Avedon to Newton, modernist to neo-classical architecture, Kubrick to Hong Kar-Wai, Richard has taken his references and nourished his erotically charged imagination.
Richard loves finely tailored suits almost as much as his limited edition Sailor Jerry All-Stars.
He is a romantic modernist who never hates. Miles Davis & Lee Morgan are always somewhere in the background.
Richard’s photographs have been featured in various international editions of ELLE, Brazilian Vogue,  French Revue de Mode, Grazia, Bullett, S Magazine, Playboy, Rolling Stone Russia …
He has also shoots portraits of celebrities such as Freida Pinto, Xavier Dolan, Dita Von Teese, Hu Bing, Asia Argento, Chiara Mastroianni, Eva Doll, Icona Pop, Adam Cohen, Nelly Furtado, and the Chromatics.
He lives with his family and Golden Doodle, Shakti.
