On location at sunrise in Santorini

I am Rick McEvoy, a professionally qualified photographer based in Dorset.

Why should you hire me?

I will try to convince you in 10 short points. Well 10 plus the pictures on my website.

  1. I am professionally qualified in photography and construction.

  2. I have over 30 years experience in industry.

  3. I enjoy meeting and dealing with people. I’m a people person and a nice guy.

  4. I enjoy my photography.

  5. I take great pride in the service I provide.

  6. I work hard at my photography.

  7. I work even harder at my business and my clients.

  8. I only work on bespoke commissions.

  9. I have a good eye for a picture.

  10. I am technically very skilled.

If that has not convinced you then please pick up the phone and talk to me. Or email me.

By the way, this is the order I thought of these 10 things. The technical part was the last one. And rather surprisingly there were 10 things!

I need to say here that if you are looking for the photographer who offers you the cheapest price then you have the wrong man. I work on bespoke, individually commissioned projects.

You are not hiring someone holding a camera when you hire me - you are hiring me, my personality and my experience. And my camera and all that other stuff of course!

I have worked in the construction industry for over 30 years. I have been interested in photography longer than that.

I have a very broad range of commercial, industrial and technical experiences.

I have dealt with a huge range of different people in that time.

If you want to know about the cameras I use, or how I process my images then get in touch whichever way you want. But to be honest most non-photographers are not that bothered.

Quite right.

It is the images that matter.

If you are thinking of hiring me you are probably not going to ask me what camera settings I use, what aperture I used to take a certain picture, what ISO I prefer using, or indeed what settings I use in Lightroom and Photoshop. Whilst this information is everything to photographers, it is the reverse to everyone else. And I wont bore you with that information.

My job is to use my eye, my expertise and my equipment to get you the images you want. It really is that simple.

On that point, please feel free to browse the various pages on my website. I won’t bore you with me telling you how good I am at taking pictures – all the images on my website are my own, and are my living portfolio.

I will however tell you that I have well-practised image capture and processing workflows, which allow me to produce images consistently and in my own style. So, if you like the look of my images, get in touch and let’s see what we can come up with between us.
