Press Release:
Richard was the unanimous choice of a selection panel which included the leading cricket photographer Graham Morris, who will act as Richards professional mentor during the coming season.

Under this unique scheme, Richard will also benefit from financial support (worth up to 7,500), a season-long pass to Lords and the opportunity to photograph numerous MCC out-matches and, potentially, one of the Club's overseas tours.

Graham Morris said: We chose Richard from a very strong field of candidates, as he submitted an extremely impressive portfolio. His love of sport, coupled with a great talent for still life and architectural photography, will give him a good grounding in what will be a very busy season at Lords.

Richard said: I am thrilled to have been chosen for this scholarship and relish the prospect of photographing cricket at the highest level - especially at Lords. I have always been a cricket fan, and this post will give me invaluable experience and the opportunity to pursue my ambition of becoming a full-time sports photographer.

Richard will begin his season as MCC's Young Cricket Photographer on Friday, when MCC will face the Champion County (Nottinghamshire) at the start of a four-day fixture at Lord's.

Richard has a BA (Hons) in Photography from the University of Staffordshire. He was the overall winner of the Telegraph & Argus/Jessops Architecture Photography Competition (black & white category) in September 2002. In October 2004, the British Journal of Photography Magazine published his photographic project documenting life at the Thorn Park School for Hearing Impaired Children in Bradford; Richard, who is himself slightly hearing impaired, undertook this project to show that such special schools are just like any other.

The Young Cricket Photographer scheme is one of several MCC initiatives to foster young cricket-related talent. Others include the MCC Young Cricketers scheme (which has helped to develop players including New Zealand's Hamish Marshall and England's Rikki Clarke) and the MCC School of Merit (which has helped the development of cricketers including Ashley Giles and Ian Blackwell).
