Thunderbolt Photography started as a personal side project within a rock and metal night club by Richard back in 2011. From there it grew from covering night club photography and progressed to where is stands today providing various professional services since 2014.
I'm Richard Ross. I'm a multiple discipline Cheshire based photographer. My day job involves product photography for an international company.
I love to shoot portraits, live gigs, events and weddings. I've had printed work in various magazines such as Kultur Mag, Metal Hammer,
Pinstriping & Kustom Graphics Magazine, various SAM Publications.
My favoured style is lowkey lighting, crisp blacks and pin sharp focus. I like to capture those in-between candid moments of real connection whether it's between band members on stage, the interaction of a couple, or the person I'm capturing a portrait of. A true honest moment.
For larger more involving projects I work with a small hand picked capable team of assistants and 2nd shooters.
I like to meet up with clients for coffee (and cake) to get to know them a little and clearly understand what they wish to achieve in a session.
Drop me a message and let's see what I can do for you.
