Richard is the founder and owner of Epic Action Imagery. 


Richard has a lifelong interest in photography and a lifelong interest in sports. Epic Action Imagery is the perfect way to blend these two areas. After 20 years in education, he took the plunge to make it his full-time occupation in 2014. This step also opened up a third area of interest; travel. And covering events in 18 countries in the past 8 years has been a lot of fun. 


You can find out more about Richard's photography journey in an article published by SmugMug in 2021. This article includes a selection of some of Richard's favourite images that he's captured over the years. 

Alexandre Baril 

Directeur - Epic Action Imagery (Canada)

Aussi loin que je me souvienne, j'ai toujours été attiré et passionné par la photo animalière. Lorsque j'ai découvert la photographie sportive, en 2014, j'ai naturellement commencé à prendre des photos de divers sports, qui m’a mené à avoir des opportunités de couvrir des courses de classe mondiale.

Je suis totalement autodidacte, mais j'ai pu, au fil des années, découvrir d'autres univers photographiques afin d'acquérir des techniques et une perspective qui me permettent aujourd'hui de m'adapter aux demandes et besoins variés de nos clients.

Mon objectif est de répondre à vos attentes et de vous offrir un excellent service et des images exceptionnelles.

Et maintenant en anglais.

As far as I can remember, I have always been attracted and passionate about wildlife photography.

When I discovered sports photography, in 2014, I naturally started taking pictures of various sports, which led me to having opportunities to cover world-class races. I am totally self-taught, but I have been able, over the years, to discover other photographic universes in order to acquire techniques and a perspective that allow me today to adapt to the varied demands and needs of our clients.

My goal is to meet your expectations and provide you with excellent service and exceptional images.
