Chris Richardson has been taking photographs since the early 70's starting out shooting fashion for magazines such as Honey Vanity Fair Vogue interiors and Cosmopolitan. He set up the first of several London studios specialising in product photography, studio-built interior sets and what is now called 'lifestyle' photography. His commissions vary, from Cadbury's chocolate and Whiskas cat food to handbags, shoes, jewellery, mountain bikes, scooters, hats and lingerie, even helicopters and jet planes. Clients have also included Microsoft and Jaguar cars. He now shoots mainly portraits and landscapes for his own image library and provides on line tuition. (www.betterphotography.co.uk)

Its a pretty good shot, Allen, but I have had to be a bit conservative with my marking because of the use of the 'Auto' facilities. These are the type of shots that s...

Your image, Juan, will not set the world alight but you have succeeded in achieving what you set out to do. Now you can start to improve on this with subsequent shots...

You mention 'movement' in your description. There really is no movement when there should be! It has the potential of a great train pic but you seem to have missed ou...

It's an OK shot but could have been a lot better with a little more thought. The slight skewiness looks like you shot it on the run (which I am sure you didn't!). If ...

Overall a terrific image let down only by the positioning of the car and the slightly distracting second car in the background. Most of all I love the deep velvety bl...
