I sit down with Richard Brimer at his Te Awanga home about his journey as a photographer, why he’s always been intrigued by people, what first got Richard into photography and how he fulfilled his desire to be a war photographer.
Richard also shares why he keeps his photograph style traditional, and why his camera setup of Hasselblad and Leica reflects simplicity, how he uses Instagram as a source of creative inspiration and why photo books are still a great way to view photographs.
PLUS Richard shares some huge advice for budding photographers including the importance of setting impossible goals for yourself in business, taking photographs outside of client work, thinking about every shot, looking at the 4 corners of the viewfinder, why lighting the eyes is everything for portraits and how photography should be treated like a sport to practice.
