Richard Bishop Photography Shrewsbury | Hire the Right Photographer

Professional photographer Richard Bishop from Shrewsbury has been creating expressive images ever since he can remember and he loves his job. He had his first photograph published on the front page of local newspaper, the Shrewsbury Chronicle, when he was 8 years-old.

He specialises in creating expressive images for major national clients including McDonalds, BP, Citroen UK, Enterprise UK, the Sun,  The Times, The Mail, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, the Newsletter (Belfast), The Belfast Telegraph,  Newsquest, Shropshire Newspapers, Homes and Interiors, Shropshire Council, the MOD, West Mercia Police and PR companies around the UK.

His images are representative of an eclectic client base: public relations, national and regional press, websites, sport, headshots, high and low key portraiture architecture, vehicle, commercial, industrial, product, museums and fine art.

He was the wedding photographer at British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s marriage to Allegra Mostyn-Owen at St Michael’s Church, West Felton followed by the reception at Allegra’s family home, Woodhouse, a grade II-listed 1,500 acre estate just up the road.

He writes news and feature articles for the press and for organisation’s blogs. His work often involves increasing a company’s exposure and helping to define a corporate image.

He lectures in photography from beginners up to degree level and runs Shrewsbury School of Photography in Shrewsbury and Church Stretton.
