Portraits by Richard Munn

I have worked with Richard Munn on personal portrait commissions, and large film events, he always delivers beautiful work. When I need essential imagery, he is always my first port of call. 

He is a gentle soul, very lovely to work with and he has the gift of taking his lens beyond the mundane to capture the ephemeral. Richard is an artist.

Portrait by Richard Munn

Cooking and food for me are my biggest passion, and something that I feel I can share most with the people around me. It’s important for me that people make that personal connection between what they’re eating and the person behind it, and to realise that if you have passion for what you’re doing then there should be no barriers to achieving your goals!

Working with Richard enabled me to be involved in the design process of the portrait so that both the passion I bring to food and the invitation I'm making for people to enjoy food can be expressed. A big part of personal branding online is the sense of personal connection and story that people feel when looking at your profile. The portrait you use is of course a huge part of this and is something worth investing in.

Richard guided me through the process in a relaxed and collaborative way and I'm delighted with the final result!
