Richard Gaston’s work focuses on some of the breathtaking aspects of the natural world. Whether it’s looming mountaintops or the rolling greenery of wind-swept fields, the emphasis is on a clean aesthetic. His fine art photography ranges in subject but does also come with a very particular focus on light and composition. There’s no ambiguity in Gaston’s imagery — a crucial part of his process involves making sure that the subject is clearly defined.

Quick Questions

Inspiration?

Natural landscapes, wildlife and weather

Favourite part of your job?

Exploring parts of the world I wouldn't normally visit, the people I meet who teach me new and interesting things and the never ending positive emotions I feel when taking photos.

First break?

When I threw a blind email out to my favourite company at the time, Norse Projects, containing images I had taken of my friend in their clothing which they returned with a positive email saying they would like to use the images in their visual assets. This was a defining moment in my career. The motivation and excitement I experienced was unparalleled and still encourages me to this day.

Biggest challenge?

Committing to several hours of driving into the Highlands, then hiking several hours into remote areas with heavy equipment, hoping the weather forecast is accurate.

Worst moment?

Dropping an expensive lens into a pond after deciding it was worth the effort to take a mediocre photo, or sliding on my bum across a narrow mountain ridge, covered in melting snow when I forgot my crampons.

Secret ambition?

Combining photography and social work in future (Community Arts) - I have an Honours degree in Social Work.
