My 10th Year at the ‘Fringe Festival’

Each August in Edinburgh over the last 10 years I have had a wonderful time here in Edinburgh. Since 2009, when I came here in support of a ground-breaking show, ‘The Strong Breast Revolution’. Not quite knowing what I was going to find I dived in to the madness of the Royal Mile. I tried […]

Here are some pictures of Ian performing his show ‘Looking for Wolverhampton’s Latin Quarter’. With some delightful anecdotes from his youth as he found out about working life and the world around him, waiting to be discovered for his creative endeavours. A charming piece that brings back memories of growing up in the 70’s. Return […]

Sir David and His Animals

When you’re a real celebrity there must be many demands on your time, and when you’ve got something really important to say then how do you find any time at all. This was the root of the problem for Clownfish Theatre as they had booked the great man himself to present an anthology of his […]

I photographed Viviana at the Space Triplex Studio venue 38 where she performed a delightful set of songs associated with Marilyn who had captured her heart. This is a homage to her. The show finishes on the 17th so there are only a couple more opportunities to catch this. Return to Richard’s Gallery

Will You Photograph My Show?

My Photography at the fringe I know that I may get it in the neck from the professional photographers here at the fringe but I believe that in general terms a show does not need a paid photographer. There are quite a few photographers in Edinburgh during festival time and probably more than you know. […]

Stand-up Poet – Greg Byron

One of Fringe Review’s must see shows. Occasionally through the performance I found it difficult to concentrate on taking photos as Greg entertained me and the rest of the audience. Several times I had to prevent the camera shaking as he performed his poems. Giggling throughout I have to concur that it is a great […]

Délicieux – Seckford Theatre

I must declare an interest in this theatre group, I always photograph them while I’m here, which is every two years. Seckford Theatre is part of my old school, which incidentally I left 5o years ago this year. 1969 was a wonderful year for those of you that may remember it. Travelling up from Woodbridge […]

Here are a selection of pics from ‘Mallets‘ a show at Surgeons’ Hall, Theatre 3 that I photographed on Tuesday. A delightfully light, piece of fast-paced comedy showing the underlying currents swirling around during the afternoon of an eagerly anticipated croquet match. Return to Richard’s Gallery

The end approaches

When I arrived on the 30th July those all around the fringe were busy, setting up, briefing the troops and all the other things necessary for this year’s fun. I wandered around watching what was happening and planning my schedule. Now I was onto the Press Launches and selecting shows to photograph. That was then […]

Here are a few pictures from last Saturday’s Meet the Media. Performers; Publicists and others? queue from early morning to take the opportunity to pitch their shows to members of the media. Lasting all afternoon the orderly queues slowly disappear as the enthusiasm diminishes. However, patience and commitment is necessary to interest these reviewers. Return […]
