Richard Johnson was born and raised in Cape Town but now calls London home.
He is driven by a desire to create authentic and emotional images, regardless of the subject matter. Whether he is shooting athletes, models, complete strangers or close friends he captures people with honesty and visual flair.
He has worked with brands including Oakley, Adidas, Toyota, Red Bull, Virgin Active, Sony, Hurley, O’Neill and RVCA and his photography has appeared in publications including Huck, Marie Claire, Surfer and Stab. He regularly collaborates with individual sportsmen and women, often returning to his first passion, surfing, for personal projects.
He is a committed surfer, part-time snowboarder and a self confessed terrible skateboarder.
