Excellent photographer. We needed some profile shots for our business and on seeing Richard's work we knew he was the right man for the job. He's very experienced, great to deal with and the results are beyond our expectations. Highly recommended.
Having seen Rich's impressive portfolio, I asked him to kindly take photos at my 50th birthday party (it was full on fancy dress with circa 70 people). He and his work were amazing. The photos were incredible. He didn't stage manage anything, he simply mingled with the party and took some wonderfully authentic photos of party people being party people and in their element, blissfully unaware of the camera. It was so special and he helped us have incredibly vivid permanent images of an amazing event with friends and family. I couldn't recommend Rich highly enough! To boot he is a top bloke. Thanks again Rich.
"I have known Richard for many years. He is a great photographer, instantly putting his subjects at ease with his calm and creative manner.
His key strength is in his versatility; he has a keen eye and can create amazing shots even under the most unpromising of circumstances. Whether it's PR, Portraiture or Events, he produces images at a very high level. I would highly recommend Richard, he is one of the nicest professional photographers I know."
am delighted with the photographs Richard created of me, my wife and our two children. The 2 hour shoot at our home was such a relaxed event; he put us all at ease and was really great with our children (3 and 5 years old). We will cherish the photos, and they take pride of place in our lounge and entrance hall.
I have enjoyed working with Richard Cave for almost ten years, on everything from spot news to feature assignments. I don't think there is a situation that he hasn't photographed or can't handle. From screaming children to Royal visits, his photographs are imaginative and entertaining. He connects with the subject and produces quality images.
As a photographer, Richard Cave could squeeze the highest quality and originality out of the most routine assignment. He has an instinctive eye for a picture that cannot be taught in a classroom and his peers have recognised this time and again, evidenced by his multiple national awards nominations over the years. He also brings reliability, experience and maturity to the job. After 11 years working with him, I have no hesitation in recommending him highly.
