Simon Richardson


I am a professional photographer specialising in dance, theatre and portraiture. I have a studio near Bedford, but also spend a lot of time shooting rehearsals, workshops and classes.

My interests in dance photography ranges from ballet to Indian Classical to parkour.

I have worked for numerous dance and theatre companies, produced individual portfolios for dancers, actors and models, exhibited in Bedford, London (Festival Hall, Nehru Centre, Peacock Theatre) and Outer Mongolia and worked extensively round the world.

I am also Chairman of Kadam Asian Dance and Music, a Bedfordshire based company, which promotes South Asian dance and is the publisher of PuIse. I am friendly and easy-going. My passion is photographing people. I think Andy Warhol said that it is impossible to take a bad picture of people because people are so wonderful. I go along with that a fair bit of the way.
