Richard and I worked together for the inaugural campaign for the couture lingerie brand I founded, named Luna Mae London. I found him to be not only an exceptionally talented photographer, but also a great listener, and was able to understand and contribute to the concept I was looking for, delivering beautiful photography which I could not be happier with.

Our influences aligning, my first meeting with Richard assured me that he would be a perfect fit to portray exactly the essence of what I wanted to represent with my brand. Richard’s ability to capture the female form is remarkable and his eye for attention to detail is something I was able to fully appreciate, and witness, in his work. His wonderfully vibrant personality allowed everyone on set to have a great time, proving him to be an absolute pleasure to work with.

I felt as though the campaign Richard shot was a fully collaborative effort and I am already looking forward to our next project together.

Working with Richard Bernardin for two campaigns of Francesco Smalto was not only a great pleasure, but also an inspiring experience!

His way of expressing my creations through his photography was based on mutual understanding and having a incredible connection from the beginning. Not only was the result a story to tell but also the beginning of a great friendship... Thank you Richard!

Having worked both as Richard’s agent and with him as his client, I can truly say that he is one of the most talented photographers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. His photographic style is distinctive. His technical skills include an absolute mastery of natural as well as studio lighting. He has a keen eye for image composition and easily skirts the line between artistic and commercial. His efficiency on set and his easygoing demeanor make the overall experience of working with Richard pleasant and the results amazing.”

Richard Bernardin’s work stopped me in my tracks on several occasions throughout my life, long before I met him.

I was taken by the strong identity and point of view of his work; both glamorous and sexy, as well as effortless yet composed.

I can say that after having had the pleasure of working with him, my view only improved! Richard has a professionalism and passion that is palpable and the ease and elegance of his photographs are evident in his very personality; Richard just lends his own traits and sensibilities to his work.

So it is my belief that if you like his work, you actually like Richard Bernardin himself.
