Hi there! I'm Richard Fraser, an award-winning architecture and interior photographer based in Cambridge who travels throughout the UK to work with clients of all types and sizes. I work with large firms to help with their marketing needs, as well as small businesses who produce equally stunning work on a smaller scale. You can find examples of these projects here.
With each project, I enjoy trying to form long-lasting working relationships with my client to ensure that I gain a deeper understanding of needs, tastes, and preferences. Working together on a series of projects not only results in the best quality outcome from the photography booking but a level of consistency with your projects which you wouldn't otherwise be able to achieve.
I was born and raised in Cambridge, where I used to work as a Primary School teacher for 10 years. I was a professional photographer for many years but for half of the week. It was in 2019 that I decided to become a full time photographer for architects and designers after my images of Highland House in snowy Scotland helped Haysom Ward Miller Architects, a practice I have worked alongside for many years, win the RIBA House of the Year award in 2018.
Since then, my photographs have helped multiple architects and designers document and market their own work, win competitions, feature in publications and become recognised for multiple awards. In the last four years, I've photographed projects that have won RIBA National Awards in three of them. Check out my latest news blog to learn more about these awards and the various scenarios I encounter.
My approach is meticulous. After an initial chat, I'll gather the information to truly grasp an understanding of your building or space and how you'd like it portrayed. I'll plan the best time of day/year according to your needs and the sun path. We'll talk through the possible shots we can achieve, and from there, I'll liaise with relevant people to make it happen. I use the latest, high-quality Fuji GFX camera system with shift lenses, creating photographs of unrivaled quality. The resulting, fully-edited images will be supplied to you in a publication-ready format optimised for print and web-based communications that meet your requirements.
In my spare time, you'll find me cycling far away, making a cup of well-brewed tea, photographing other urban scenes or out on long walks, finding beauty in the landscapes I travel through. I also volunteer for RIBA Cambridge, where I help with images for their various publications and events.
If you have a project or idea you'd like to discuss, please get in touch, or give me a call on 07973787870 to talk it through. I look forward to hearing from you.
