I'm not trying to be sexy. It's just my way of expressing myself when I'm Shooting!!
I'm a Swansea/London-based photographer and my name is Richie Crossley, at only 14 years of age, I had a defining moment in my life - I saw a photograph entitled “Keeping Up With The Joneses” by the late Bob Carlos Clark. That one image had such impact on me that I instantly knew what he wanted to do with my life! It fuelled a passion for photography and brunettes in me which todate has never left me!
I went on to study photography and after working for various photographers and laboratories, I finally realised my dreams of opening my own photographic studio.
My images have appeared in many publications world wide and I now only specialises in:
Beauty - Fashion - Provocative
My photographic career has allowed me many opportunities worldwide and to date I have undertaken commissions in: New York, Paris, Milan, Frankfurt, Monte Carlo, Spain, The French Caribbean, several North African countries and London - where I now resides and runs chicproduction.com
“Although I have studied photography and printing, I am very much a self-taught photographer and have always been hands-on - no matter how big or small the job is. Becoming a photographer was the best thing that ever happened to me - not only for the experimental elements but also for the challenges that this medium presents. In simple terms, I do what I love and love what I do.”
