Richard Wood (educator)

NEW ZEALAND

Hi Everyone. I head this community 'Richard Wood Photography & Photoshop Education'.

I operate in all sorts of fields of photography, from portrait, to wedding, too commercial. But my love lies with conceptual, creative, illustrative portraits. I am completely addicted to entering awards as I find it pushes me further each year and feeds growth.

I find great joy in sharing my knowledge amongst stage talks, workshops, online courses and of course this community in the hopes that it can also bring others joy and success.

 "I strive to create art that is very much controlled in detail but arrives from the furthermost edges of my imagination."
