Richard Powers began his photographic career in 1991. Travelling extensively in Asia, Central America, South America and Europe, he captured images for a series of books called 'Cultures of the World' covering El Salvador, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Syria and Denmark.
By 1996, his interests in design and architecture saw him diversify to incorporate interiors and still life into his repertoire. Based in London, he began shooting for publications such as UK Elle Decoration, House and Garden, Sunday Times and The Telegraph. Emigrating to Australia he spent 7 years shooting for local & international titles worldwide as well as campaign shoots for Australian Tourism and advertising agencies.
Richard has continued to expand his interior and architecture portfolio as well as an array of still life, lifestyle and travel images. His latest books "New Natural Home" and "The Iconic House" both published by Thames & Hudson will be joined in 2012 with "The Iconic Interior" , "New Paris Style" and the follow up to Living Modern "Living Modern : Tropical" along with other personal projects adds a personable and unique perspective to his work. He has also recently completed a monograph on the work of Piet Boon.
