My name is Richard Wakefield and I’m a professional photographer and cinematographer based in Oxfordshire, UK.  I take on assignments all around the globe, and am fortunate to work with such exciting and varied clients.

I consider myself to be a visual artist, creatively photographing with colour and light in mind.  From planning and setup, to shooting and retouching, I always strive to achieve a unique and polished look.

Through online training, as well as workshops and 1:1, I have trained thousands of like-minded people around the globe, and have been asked to speak at numerous workshops for Canon, IOV, OFVM and SWPP.

During shoots, people say I’m professional, approachable and friendly.  For behind-the-scenes and events, I pride myself on being able to blend seemlessly into the background as I capture the story that unfolds before my eyes.  And for photo shoots and films, I always put in maximum effort when giving direction and creative input.

Photography and cinematography have always been an ever-evolving art form to me.  From start to finish, I treat each photo and film with the love they deserve, without sacrifices, and I only hope my portfolio reflects this dedication and hard work.
