Experience Matters

I have been doing journalism and photojournalism for nearly 30 years, and love capturing a story, whether it is an unfolding event, a newsmaker profile, or a long feature. I have traveled the country and the world on assignments, and my work has been published widely in a variety of media.

Please reach out to let me know the story you want to capture. I would love to work together.

Paul is a true professional who not only delivers a high end quality product, but gives great guidance and makes the experience fun along the way. The end product speaks for itself... I highly recommend Richardson Photography.

Paul is a true professional with an exceptional eye and a fantastic finished product.

I really wish I could give him 10 stars. Paul is a true artist, his work is incredible and it truly shows. He is genuine and talented, he values the clients' needs and executes.

I was pretty nervous for my headshot session, but Paul made it easy and enjoyable, without the goofy embarrassing photographer stuff I remember from school picture day! He was then prompt and attentive in getting me the best images and very responsive to my requests in order to get the edited images just right. It was a pleasure working with Paul and I highly recommend him!

Vice President for Community Relations / Vermont Land Trust

I recommend Paul E. Richardson as a professional photographer. Paul worked for our non-profit on an outdoor and barn photo shoot and we used his photos for the web, a fundraising case statement and with media relations. His work is aesthetically excellent and he is flexible and easy to work with. We receive many compliments on the pieces where his work appears. We look forward to using his photos and hiring him in the future.

/ Brubeck Brothers Quartet

Paul has a great eye, and is very talented not only at shooting his subjects, but also at capturing the right light.

Besides being smart, personable and humorous fellow, Paul knows a LOT about getting the right shot from the angles, the lighting, the color... honestly, it's FUN! I had him shoot a 'product' for me and we had a blast and the pictures are awesome. Can't wait to have another shoot!

Diane Maurice-Brault

/ Vermont Lavender

I recently had my product photos done by Paul and the results are truly amazing. He took my skin care products to a new level of professionalism and demonstrated their value... If you want quality, high end professional photos done with years of experience and knowledge, Paul Richardson is the photographer to have for your business.

Bek Zhandossov

Besides great shots of our event, Paul was very responsive, open and creative! He knows the best locations in Montpelier, and his sense of occasion helped us capture very special moments.
