Richard trained as an Orchestral Percussionist in the 1980's but his true love has always been the outdoors and particularly mountain environments. Throwing in his drumsticks to become a full-time photographer in 2004 he continues to work with a large format camera alongside digital equipment and exhibits his work in solo and group exhibitions as well as at his own gallery in the Ironbridge Gorge.

Richard Childs visited the On Landscape head office this week (aka Tim's office) and as well as enjoying the usual inter photographer chit chat we recorded a few videos about some of his images. As usual, we're using a similar format to Joe's videos, a popular shot, a not so popular shot and, in this case, a shot that is a bit different from Richard's usual modus operandi - taken with a medium format camera at the start of setting up his business in Scotland. For those of you who don't know Richard's work, take a look at his website at http://www.richardchildsphotography.co.uk which I'm told may well be updated this summer.

Richard uses a large format camera** and strolls to the top of great mountains carrying the equivalent in weight to fifteen bottles of whisky!! And that is quite a lot of whisky!!

** I know - we keep featuring all of these film and large format people - suggestions for DSLR digital photographers would be most welcome, please use the 'feedback' tab on the left hand side of this page - if they're in the North of England, even better).
