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.

Amy Bodette Barr

Development & Marketing Director / United Way of Addison County

Paul spent three days with our nonprofit, traveling from site to site, capturing images of the work we and our partners do in human services throughout the county. Our staff agrees that we could not have chosen a better person for this project. We chose Paul because of the quality of his product, but were pleasantly and equally impressed with the way he interacted with people of all ages, in so many different situations. Whether photographing a group of young children at a daycare, a person receiving services from a homeless shelter or an elderly person receiving physical therapy from a visiting nurse, Paul was respectful, engaging, and professional. He has a remarkable skill for putting his subjects at ease and being in the right place at the right time, without being intrusive. We highly recommend Paul and look forward to working with him on future projects.

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!

Paul has done a number of shoots for my program and his work speaks volumes. He recently shot my Ghanaian Traditional Engagement Ceremony and the photos were amazing!.. His turnaround time on the photos were very quick! I definitely recommend Paul. Can't sing his praises enough!

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

/ Portrait Client

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.

Vickie Wacek

Director / BNI Vermont

Paul is incredibly reliable and truly an artist! Every time I hire him for events, the work that he produces is well above my expectations and I find myself proud to feature his results in my communications with clients and in my advertising! He's easy to communicate with and at the event he's professional, friendly, and focused. I highly recommend Paul Richardson and Richardson Photography!
