Richard Foster is a photographer / director specialising in luxury still life. Working from his West London studio with his in-house production team and retouch suite, Richard Foster is producing high end editorial stories and commercial campaigns through both stills and moving image.

Richard Foster’s practice starts with a study of an object, with an attention to unexpected details and a focus on form. He uses light, and how light shapes each element, to abstract beauty from within the subject. Foster uses each opportunity, from a personal idea, to a brand collaboration to bring together the tangible components, combining and pushing these to a create visually heightened results.

In 2017, Richard Foster published his first book Between Senses & Uncertainty alongside a solo exhibition of the work. The book, with its two mirrored chapters The Beauty of Abstraction and The Abstraction of Beauty celebrates and perfectly summarises Foster’s visual practice and style to date.

Renowned for drawing & highlighting detail in each image, Richard has built a portfolio of work with brand giants such as Burberry, Fendi, Gucci, Jaguar, Johnnie Walker, Rolls Royce & Vogue.
