20100528_SPL_00046-EditNathan Richardson is a freelance travel, editorial and commercial photographer based out of Cork, Ireland. Clients include National Geographic, The Sunday Times, The Irish Times, Alamy Images and many other magazines, guidebooks and newspapers worldwide.

“It is the stories I get to tell, and the people I get to meet, from goat herders in Mongolia to soap vendors in Syria – that’s makes everything I do worthwhile.

Getting to visit breathtaking sights and be immersed in some amazing and unique cultures is a great blessing and privilege. However, there is a heavy responsibility to be honest and empathetic towards the people and cultures I am photographing, while at the same time approaching each subject with an enthusiasm and curiosity that grabs the viewer.”
