Richard was born in Kent, England more years ago than he cares to remember - or in fact, can remember!! After studying Physics and Astrophysics at the University of London, he joined the RAF initially as a Fast Jet Navigator (like being 'Goose' in the film 'Top Gun' - but thankfully with a happier ending!!) After a stroke of luck, he got the opportunity to do what he really wanted to do - and retrained as an RAF pilot. The majority of his RAF flying was spent working in and around places east of the UK that have had a fair amount of media attention in recent years. On retirement from the RAF, he decided to further his horizons and relocated to the USA. Opportunity has very recently brought him back across 'The Pond' to continue in the Aviation Industry. He always has his camera close at hand and hopes that you enjoy at least some of the images he has captured.
