Harry Pearce from Pentagram came to Richard with an idea for a short film which would work alongside a poster he created titled ‘Chances are…’. The poster is for a major exhibition and collaboration between the Goethe-Institut Israel and the David Ben Ari Museum in Bat Yam, Israel. Entitled ‘The art of Utopia’ the exhibition explores the relevance of Utopian ideals in contemporary society and contemplates their potential to spark hope amid the upheaval of 2017. Pearce created ‘Chances are…’, by dropping six letterforms that comprise the word ‘Utopia’, from a height of 1 metre, 55 times. It was great to document the creative idea of the poster as a moving image.
‘Utopia: We are all ultimately in the hands of beautiful, universal moments of chance’

Christmas at De Beers
Posted on November 8, 2011
This shoot took some planning to become the serene shot that is now in Vogue and other magazines around the world.
Our ice expert created real snow flakes to form on roses and firs by leaving countless cups of boiling water in a freezer tank to evaporate. Each scene and flower had to be frozen up to ten days in advance. We then shot the pre-frozen jewellery in a walk in freezer.
All worth the effort to find the look that the De Beers team love for Christmas.
Posted on August 9, 2011
We were delighted when old friends Dunhill asked us to shoot a couple of new watches for them. This one has a face of black diamonds!

Dalmore Trinitas Whisky
Posted on November, 2010
The first bottle of whisky to hit six figures, and only three bottles have ever been made. We went through a few concepts from smoke to liquid and came out with this highly reflective shot. It was a beautiful bottle to shoot, as all the graphics were made of solid silver and the bottle itself was handblown from crystal.
