Richard is a professional photographer and photojournalist who currently resides in Khao Lak, Thailand. He spends most of his working hours underwater photographing scuba divers and marine life. Richard originally hails from Zimbabwe, an area far from the ocean though never far from wildlife and nature which have always been a major driving force behind his career to date.
It wasn’t until 2000 that Richard first learnt to scuba dive during a temporary stint living in the UK. Despite water temperatures of 11˚C, poor visibility and not a lot of marine life he caught the diving bug and continued his training becoming a qualified PADI Instructor by 2003. The instructor part of the training was in Sharm el Sheik, Egypt where diving conditions improved considerably.
