Jim Richard­son is one of the most respect­ed pho­tog­ra­phers of our time, whose name in pro­fes­sion­al cir­cles is known, if not by every­one, then by almost every­one.

Jim Richardson

Dur­ing his pro­fes­sion­al career, Jim has trav­eled to hun­dreds of amaz­ing places on the plan­et, tak­ing unique pic­tures for Nation­al Geo­graph­ic Mag­a­zine and for his per­son­al exhi­bi­tion in his own gallery “Small World”, which is locat­ed in Kansas, on the main street of Linds­borg

Unlike most pho­tog­ra­phers who excel in only one or a few sub-types of pho­tog­ra­phy, Jim is giv­en lit­er­al­ly every­thing he takes up, from ordi­nary land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy to black and white doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy, which, cou­pled with a pas­sion for con­stant trav­el, makes Richard­son one of the the most ver­sa­tile and high­ly paid pho­tog­ra­phers of our time

It’s prob­a­bly eas­i­er to list the places he did­n’t go with his cam­era than to name the places Jim went to, because. you will have to start with the high­est vol­ca­noes, and fin­ish with swampy low­lands some­where at the end of the world
