Hey Welcome To Cornish Connect Photo and Design, brought to you by multi award winning Cornish Photographer – Lawrie Richardson.
I have been taking photographs for many years now, originally starting out when living in West Cornwall and not having all that many friends, I would take myself out either on foot, push bike or the bus and take the camera along with me, I have never ever had training for photography, just like computers and website design I have taught myself everything I know. My previous work experience includes being a photographer at Cornish World Magazine and also supplying images for then local newspaper – The Cornishman, The West Britton and also for BBC Spotlight TV and ITV West Country Website, I have also supplied my services as a photographer to local charities, including The Daisy Project, The Childrens Hospice South West, The Chestnut Appeal and since living in Plymouth I have donated images to my now local newspaper – The Plymouth Herald.
I enjoy a mixed bag of subjects, although I am more well known for my seascape and landscape photography, I do also offer Wedding Photography, Family Portraits, Modelling Portfolios, Commercial Photography, Event Coverage etc and if you are interested 1-1 and online photography training too.

In the beginning, back in the days when digital photography was still so new and that a lot of people were still relying on film for their photography, I bought my very first digital camera, a half price (£175) PC World Truro – Boxing Day Sale, Fujifilm Finepix 2200, that offered me 2.1 mega pixels, and although incredibly basic as compared to the equipment thats on the market now and the equipment I personally use, my work was getting published, a 2.1 mega pixel image was more than enough to cover two pages in my local, then newspaper – The Cornishman.

A few years later I upgraded to a Fujifilm bridge camera and then onto my first (of many) interchangeable lens cameras, being the Nikon D50, still a superb camera than fellow photographer friend, Steve uses daily, although just 6 mega pixels, the imagery was outstanding.
So it just goes to show, that equipment is not everything, as I sit here writing this update to my website, I am using a iMac 27″ from late 2012, its had its issues but with some TLC its still working fine.
Although Cornish Connect is an established business, its still good to help others, so if you are reading this and you have any questions, ask me, its fine, honest.
