Hi my Name is Bob Riach

I purchased my first camera six years ago. I immediately became absorbed in creating images.

The enjoyment and reward I gain from this are immeasurable.

I turned professional in 2015

My Images portray a personal vision, covering numerous subjects such as landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, wildlife and much more both in colour and monochrome.

I love night time photography and am always amazed at what the camera can capture in low light conditions.

I travel worldwide taking photographs.

I have always imagined a photograph to be like a jigsaw puzzle, you have to find the various pieces that fit together to create something visually pleasing.

I take pride in capturing a variety of images ranging from;

  • Landscapes
  • Wildlife
  • Flora and Fauna
  • Sunset and Sunrises
  • Night Photography
  • Macro Photography
  • Street Photography
Present equipment
