Richard Cooper has spent more than fifty years working in corporate photography. He has specialised mostly in architectural, industrial and studio product photography. These activities require constant control and attention to detail. For instance, perspective, lighting, backgrounds, foregrounds, textures, depth of field, scale, technical quality, together with the shape of the image to fit the final layout of the advertisement; all these need to be under the control of the photographer, in order to satisfy discerning clients.
Whilst still working in these areas, he has discovered the freedom of street photography, with its' spontaneous and unpredictable nature. Simply recording life as it is, without any interference or manipulation, is the prefect foil for his business image-making, with all it's discipline.
This gallery is included purely for your interest. There are no professional models here, no organisation, no planning, no purpose for the images, other than to celebrate the diversity of life on the street.
