Director of photography | Richard Alan Mulford

​

Richard has directed + shot a variety of photographic assignments over the past 30 years. Corporate advertising campaigns include projects for FP7 McCann, Ogilvy, HSBC, Le Royal Meridien Hotels, Qatar Petroleum, Al Hilal Publishing and Al Zain Jewellery. 

​

Assignments have taken him to some interesting and remote places around the world, including a two decade specialisation in Industrial Subsea Inspection Photography for the Offshore Oil + Gas Industry, as a UK certified deep sea diver until retiring from diving. 

​

Richard has a reputation for striving for “ absolute perfection “ in his creative work. He remembers the day that he drove his convertible Mustang back to his Bahrain-based studio with a US $10 Million designer fine jewellery collection “ in the boot to shoot “.

​

Continued in-house research + photographic studio lighting experimentation, has resulted in Richard developing and producing “ a mini-indirect deep parabolic light shaper “ for rendering 3D lighting effects + stones firing on jewellery photo shoots with light-tent sets.
