 director of photography Richard Alan Mulford

Richard has over 30 years professional experience in lighting, directing, shooting and producing high-end commercial photographic artwork.


Assignments have taken him to some interesting and remote places around the world, including a two decade specialisation in Industrial Sub Sea Inspection Photography for the Offshore Oil and Gas industry, as a deep sea diver, until retiring from diving operations at 41 years of age.


Richard has a reputation for striving for ‘absolute perfection’ in his creative work. He fondly remembers the day that he drove his convertible Mustang back to his studio with a US $10 Million designer fine jewellery collection ‘in the boot to shoot’ for one of his favourite Arabian clients.


Continued in-house research and experimentation at The Photographic Art Company’s UK studio, has resulted in Richard developing and producing ‘a mini indirect deep parabolic light shaper ‘ for the purpose of rendering 3D lighting effects on jewellery shoots using light-tent sets.


Now at 50 years of age, Richard lives and works in Scarborough Town centre in North Yorkshire, where he juggles his time between photo shoots, managing his family jewellery & accessories business, caring for family and visiting friends. No photo shoot job is too big or too small, recent photo shoots include fabulous pedigree puppies, residential interiors, products, inspection report images and styled character portraits.
