Richard Israel


Organic, soulful, fashion inspired portraiture, often in black and white

Based in Charlotte, NC, available worldwide

Born and raised in London, England and at home in Charlotte, NC, I have always been a romantic at heart. I am drawn to sentimental moments, gorgeous atmospheres, and beautiful light. My work is frequently described as fashionable, timeless and emotive, but to me my photographs are simply reflections of the marriage of life and art that is always present around me. I have a passion for film, antique cameras, and handmade prints, and I’m compelled by an inextinguishable pursuit for meaningful photography and the artful life. If you’re looking for lush, heirloom portraits or unique editorial images that will stand the test of time, I would love to be your photographer.

“Fine-art photographer Richard Israel defines the concept of timeless photography in the modern world. With a uniquely vintage touch and a love for black and white film, he echoes the great Magnum photographers of the 1950’s and 60’s, and turns memorable moments into works of art
