Richard Houghton photographer based in Cambridgeshire

Type business: Semi Professional

My photographic style: Relaxed and professional. Various styles to suit the client; reportage', traditional and 'off-the-wall'!

My greatest strengths: People skills, punctuality, professionalism.

I have been in photography: Semi-professionally, only a short time. Involved in the business of photography; almost fifty years!

How I got started in photography: Desire to pursue and develop the skills I possessed, and with a little help from friends!

My photographic skills: Being able to plan an event and see it through to fruition with superb results.

My personality: Friendly, professional, fun-lover. Who enjoys looking for the good in every situation; no matter how dire it may seem! Thus, very much a 'can do' approach. Having a good sense of humour therefore is a must.

Geographic areas I cover: If the contract is right - anywhere in the world! Otherwise, primarily UK based.

Venues I frequently attend: I do not have a preference; just as happy in a small close-up gathering, as I am in a large mansion!

I found inspiration from: Too may to list here, but anyone with the same 'can do' approach who will not be beaten by either the elements, the setting or the people.

Success in photography: I have not yet entered any 'Wedding' photographs. However, some of my wildlife photographs have done very well in competitions.

Photographic training: Variety of courses taken over the years and in more recent times. Currently my aim is to work on a specific photo qualification within the Wedding industry.

My interests outside photography: Sports, videography oh, and photography!

Future plans: To continue to grow my business and expand, gradually, into other markets within the photographic industry.

I have also produced an App available for iPhones and Android phones: Photous Photography. This is a FREE App and has a ‘Hints & Tips' section providing on-the-move help and support with photographing certain types of scene; landscape, birds in flight, fireworks, still life and much more. In addition, being an experienced competition photography judge for over seven years now the App also has a ‘Photo Evaluation' service, where for just .99p people can send me a photo for evaluation and constructive comments - this takes me around 10 minutes for each so much much more than just ‘a nice photo'. I cover all the essentials that you'd expect from an experienced photo competition judge including: composition, exposure/lighting, focus/depth of field, storytelling and impact! All designed to assist the photographer to improve their photography.
