As some will know, I’m contributing to the 2020 Vision Project where together with 100 other photographers across the UK we are volunteering our photography time to produce beautiful portraiture of NHS healthcare professionals to be actioned after the Covid-19 pandemic through an exhibition and book being planned.
For my latest shoot, where you can see some behind the scene captures, it was off to Hampstead Heath in north west London to photograph Richard and get some amazing glorious views overlooking London during a very lovely and warm afternoon.
Richard is a research neurologist, who after being in A&E at the start of the pandemic became UCLH ITU family liaison contact. Richard and his team were the first ITU unit in the country to introduce Zoom conferencing for patients & family.
Richard recruited dentists to help patients and their families by making sure help was on the phone which he identified as something that needed to be done and ensured it happened.
For Richard, his “me time” is to run both to work and also in his leisure time. He has run three London marathons and was due to take part in this year’s Iron Man challenge.
