I am a London-based photographer shooting mainly live music, festivals and entertainment, on assignment for leading editorial news photo agency Shutterstock Editorial.
Live music has remained a passion of mine since my youth. One of my first gigs was the Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream tour at Cardiff University, which I watched from front row centre elbows on the stage (do I recall that correctly?) inches away from Billy Corgan. Around the same time crowdsurfing for the first time (and not the last!) at a Sugar gig, Copper Blue tour again Cardiff Uni. Formative experiences for sure, and I try & capture the excitement & intensity I felt then in my music photography today.
I feel privileged to have photographed many of the biggest acts in the world, though I also enjoy covering acts breaking through or just with something special that interests me. The highlight of my year is of course Glastonbury Festival which I have covered since 2014.
I live in Tooting with my wife Katja, we enjoy ashtanga yoga, and walking in the nature with our Shetland Sheepdog, Mauno.   Email me at richard@richardisaac.co.uk
