Hi, I'm Richard, aka Radical Snaps!
I'm a friendly Los Angeles-based, agency approved, published photographer and I'm passionate about bringing your vision to life through my work.
Aside from my signature photography style and creativity, what sets me apart from many other photography services is my background working in brand marketing positions for big corporations, including 15 years at a top Hollywood movie studio launching movies and TV shows like Star Wars, 24, Glee and The Simpsons. These marketing skills now spillover into my photography assignments for clients because I fully understand the importance of engaging the audience through high-quality eye-catching images and ultimately meeting specific client goals.
Although the best photography is born out of good technique and creativity, I value quality tools of the trade. My equipment includes Canon R6, 5Dmkiii and 60D camera bodies, Canon L-series professional lenses: F2.8 24-70mm, F2.8 70-200mm, F1.8 85mm, Canon speedlites, various reflectors, filters, and tripods.
I love working in Los Angeles and I'm very familiar with the city and surrounds. As a result of shooting here for years I know loads of great locations for just any every concept. But I'm happy to shoot at a location of your choice. I'm also happy to shoot short video clips too during the shoot which you can use for Instagram, Facebook, TikTok etc.
So, why not call or email me and let's discuss how I can make you photography project a big success - while practicing safe social distancing.
I'M VERY SOCIAL!

Awesome value and experience! It was the first time my wife did a photo shoot and we we'll definitely do it again. Richard took us to 10+ shooting locations and had a great eye for finding just the right shot/angle." - Dan S.
"I was lucky to come across Rich! I used him for an editorial shoot I needed to showcase segments of my new active wear line. Rich is a true pro. He not only assembled a great team but he took my ideas and pushed them to the next level. The shots came our better than I could have imagined. He is totally committed to fulfilling my goals and delivering quality results, all the while having loads of fun. Our second shoot was even more ambitious and the results were equally amazing. I'm planning to completely upgrade my website to match his image quality and story telling. His shots make my activewear and brand look and feel stronger than ever. I could not make it the third shoot in the dessert, but did not have to worry. Rich took control and brought back great shots." - Tanja R.

The latest images are beyond amazing and we're thrilled to see such a positive response from new clients and the media." - Bri G
"Richard and his team did an amazing job of planning the project and setting up the premises in a very short space of time. They guided us through the day and organized our team with military precision and good humor, and we got everything we needed from the whole exercise. We ended up with an abundance of fresh, impactful, and high quality new digital content assets that we’ve extensively used across all of our promotional materials and media platforms. I would thoroughly recommend them." - Simon C
"I really enjoyed working with Richard, we have done a few projects together and what really impressed me is his attention to detail and organizing each project as well, for example giving outlines for times and what looks needed to be captured in what locations.

"As a band it's hard to find creative people who are easy to work with and execute our vision. We have shot with Rich three times (our forth shoot with him tomorrow!) and he is reliable and easy to communicate with. He put a lot of thought into our last shoot which turned into a sixteen hour music video shoot complete with stills across the desert. Rich helped us plan this mammoth shoot using his local knowledge to get logistics sorted (we are from the UK so this is knowledge is invaluable!) He was quick to edit images and has provided different sized images for our social media and website needs. He has become a great friend of ours and we always have fun shooting!" - Laura D
