About Richard Baker Photography
Richard is best known for 'Red Arrows', his 2005 book of reportage and landscape about Britain's Royal Air Force aerobatic team.
September 2009 saw the publication of two more books: 'A Week at the Airport: A Heathrow Diary' (Profile Books) which followed 'The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work' published in the UK and Australia by Hamish Hamilton (April, 2009) and in the US (Pantheon). Both were collaborations with the writer Alain de Botton.
Otherwise, his corporate imagery has been presented in company literature and his photo-essays in the world's image-led magazines. He tries to pursue projects that are geographical or merely themes of the incongruous and the everyday: ideas that are topical or aesthetically-driven.
There is also an extensive archive of film images from the mid-80s onwards that are constantly being prepared for Photoshelter, Corbis and Alamy.
Richard was represented by the Katz/IPG agency for many years but nowadays he handles all aspects of his photography himself.
