Richard Williams Photographer's picture


I have been a press photographer all my working life, my first picture was published when I was 13 years old, I joined the Thomson Newspapers (Western Mai) 35 years ago, covering everthing from plane crashes to US presidential visits and just about everything in between.

More recently I was Assistant Head of Images at Media Wales in Cardiff, with oversight of all of their output which includes WalesOnline, the Western Mail, The South Wales Echo along with the weekly titles including Wales on Sunday and the Celtic Series.

I was fortunate as my role as Picture Editor of the Western Mail, still allowed me to go out with my camera to shoot both still images and video for online, which is still my passion.

Only recently I was in Swansea to cover the vist of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge which was great fun.

In December 2019 after my 35 years at the Western Mail I took the decision to leave and go Freelance, which will allow me concentrate on shooting pictures and video and use my vast experience as a photographer which spans the whole genre of Press, Commerecial and Advertising photography.
