Kent Portrait Photographer


About Me

Thomas Richards Photography is a family run business based in the heart of Kent. With a love for photography and years of experience, we offer a relaxed and professional service for Weddings, Events and Portraits at a price you can afford. 


Whether on location or in our Pop-Up Studio, our aim is to capture you in a laid-back and natural manner. This could mean memories for your family to treasure for years to come, a portrait session with your new born baby or a personal portrait session of yourself. 


After the photoshoot you will receive all images professionally edited and ready for you to share and print as you wish. 


I have been passionate about photography my whole life. After graduating from De Montfort University in 2008 with a BA Hons in photography & video, I explored the world as a travel photographer and developed my own unique approach as a lifestyle photographer. 


On returning to the UK in 2012 I helped establish 'Stepping Stone Studios,' an art collective aiming to support and connect local artists and small businesses in Kent. From here I started Thomas Richards Photography, specialising in family portraits, weddings and events. I have since developed a commercial arm to my business, working with clients both in the UK and around the world. Including; G-Forces, Informa, Merkle, TickleBerries, Chelsea Flower Show, London 2012 Olympics, Chevrolet, Imago, as well as various musicians, actors, small businesses and countless weddings and events. 


As a photographer, I am committed to capturing the most important moments in people´s lives in a relaxed and friendly way. Bringing you and mood and style of your event into focus.

Professional Family Photography


On Location:


Having a photo-shoot on location is a great way to capture some fun memories with your family and friends. Either out in the fresh air at a favourite location or in the privacy of your home, we cater for all types of portraiture. 


All Images are supplied as hi-res digital JPEG's and come professionally edited. We also offer a bespoke printing and framing service.  

The Studio: We offer two studio options:

Pop-up: Setting up in your home is a convenient way to have studio shoot with professional results. For more information on how this works please contact us.


Studio Hire: If you need a larger studio environment, renting a studio is a great way to get the space you need for the time you want. For more information on how this works please contact us.


All Images are supplied as hi-res digital JPEG's and come professionally edited. We also offer a bespoke printing and framing service.
