 “Nature never goes out of style”

Welcome to Richard Birchett Wildlife & Nature Photography. I am a published and award-winning photographer based in Cornwall, and more recently I presented a short film for BBC Winterwatch.

I’ve spent the last 22 years in the UK Military as a Survival Specialist. I like to adapt my skills as a pathfinder to allow me to track, stalk and photograph wildlife in all environments.

I hope through my experience and pictures I highlight all the great benefits the natural world has to offer, in terms of its healing properties with mental & physical health and help you reconnect with Nature.  My belief is the welfare of the subject in Nature photography is paramount.

I process everything in Adobe Lightroom, I only use Photoshop for minor adjustments like dust on the sensor, I try to keep away from major retouching as I like the images to stay as natural as possible.

I am also a qualified member of the Society of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers (SINWP).

I live in a village called Gweek in Cornwall with my wife Sarah, young son Henry and my two dogs Monty & Myah.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to look at my website; I hope you enjoy looking at my images as much as I enjoyed taking them. 

Kind regards

Richard Birchett
