Los Angeles: Richard Thompson III

Richard Thompson III’s lifelong passion for all things automotive inspires him to create images focused on the unique story and character of each car.

The past few years have led him around the world in pursuit of automobiles. From international campaign work for Bentley, Chevrolet, and Lexus to the far reaches of the globe as a photographer and editor for Mercedes-Benz global social media platforms. He also found time to realize a decade-long dream: working as photographer and in-house creative for his favorite car company, bespoke Italian manufacturer Pagani Automobili.

2017 has been another busy year for Richard, crafting imagery for the global reveal of Pagani’s Huayra Roadster at the Geneva International Motor Show, the North American debut imagery for the new Mercedes-Benz EQ brand, and most recently the Maserati’s Ghibli 'Nerissimo' on the streets of New York.
