Coming to you from a south London borough, Richard Baker is now in his 54th summer. Despite this, he continues to lose himself in freaks of imagery that trigger idle thoughts. Wholly pretentious, sentimental, often confused and above his station, this photo-led blog is about Englishness, history and self with an extra hint of mid-life turmoil and delusion.
At any other time, he is a photographer and author working on book projects and personal themes. His reportage and landscape book Red Arrows explained his year with the RAF’s aerobatic team. You might like to see his extensive archive, a Twitter feed that indulges both professional and personal thoughts plus a regularly-updated Instagram account.
Please remember, a digital photograph has still been created by someone and is always owned by its author regardless of it appearing in Google searches. I use Google Image Search to find copyright infringers and be they corporates or bloggers, I sometimes send image thieves an invoice for the illegal reproduction of my pictures. In some cases, a simple credit or back-link may suffice.
This blog’s copyrighted photography is the property and copyright of Richard Baker so please, no downloading or reproduction without consent. I will definitely respond positively to polite requests. Thoughtful comments are appreciated.
