Welcome to my website. I'm Richard Reader and I'm a photographer based in Rochester, Kent - about 30 miles outside London. I have been taking photographs since I was a child (8 years old - Kodak Box Brownie with roll film), and have moved through various film and digital cameras over the years utilising 35mm compacts, rangefinders and SLRs through digital compacts, DSLRs and mirrorless.
I tend to work mainly in the area of urban photography, including urban landscape, long exposure and street photography, and seascapes. I have also undertaken promotional work for local music artists, photographed a number of weddings, and carried out some still life commissions including food photography.
My photographs have been published in a number of journals, both printed and online, and I have exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both locally and in London.
I am a member of Colony, an art collective based in North Kent.
