More about Richard Heald

Richard Heald writes: I live in Leeds with my wife and two children but have a strong connection to Saltaire. Years ago, I started evening classes at Park Lane College in Horsforth where I processed film and produced my first black and white prints - and so began a passion. My first college photographic assignment (some years ago!) was ‘Looking at life in Saltaire’: shopkeepers and streets, the church and Salts Mill. My parents, Anne and Roger Heald, ran the gift shop/Tourist Information Centre on Victoria Road for many years and still live above the shop. Saltaire remains one of my favourite places to photograph.

I also have a particular passion for abstract photography and like to use various filters, flash guns, fisheye lenses and enjoy using long shutter speed timings to create motion blur.  A favourite place to use these techniques is London as the skyline is so iconic, filled with vibrant colours.  
I photograph local places, seascapes around the UK, and wildlife.
