About Richard Alton
Based in the United Kingdom, I shoot in black and white. I love the tones in a well made black and white print and will use film for as long as it is available.
Essential tools : 35mm Leica cameras with as few lenses as possible - nearly always 50mm or 90mm focal lengths. The less I have to carry, the better.
A common thread that runs through my photography? Affection and respect for my subjects, certainly. Gentle, offbeat humour? I hope so - feedback is always welcome.
Many of my animal images have been used on greeting cards, here and in the USA. To check availability for licensing please contact me first.
Hand prints are made to order - see the "prints" section of my website for further information.
