: London [UK]: Richard Pullar

Photographer Richard Pullar has been shooting independently for 15 years and operates his own studio out of a former prison in Clerkenwell, Central London. For Richard, still life is one of the most expressive forms of photography, providing the opportunity to craft images on an empty canvas and create from the depths of imagination. "With still life you should never take a boring photograph. You only have yourself to blame."

Despite many jobs and clients, he still finds time to shoot for himself, working on personal projects that have taken him to Paris, Spain, Marrakech, and Budapest. He loves being in the studio, however, and is passionate about using light to bring his ideas to life. Putting things together that wouldn't normally fit, his juxtaposition of competing elements produces highly suggestive, thought-provoking photography.

Richard stresses he isn't solely a still life niche photographer. Portraiture, lifestyle, people, and location all form part of his professional portfolio and eclectic tastes. However, clients are often drawn to him through still life and then discover he has a far deeper breadth and range to his work.

Richard recently began a selection of video projects that will soon appear on his website. His clients include Waitrose, HSBC, Guinness, and Cisco, among many others. Agencies include Ogilvy, Grey, DDB, and Lowe.
