Welcome to ShootingRichard.com. Here you'll find information about Richard Bailey, as well as useful tools and advice for the worlds of video, photo, and writing.

I am a storyteller.

No matter the medium, I am concerned with telling stories in the most creative ways possible. I am a video producer and director, I am a photographer, and I am an author. I’ve worked on projects with Hollywood-sized budgets and I’ve bled for projects that would be happy to have even a single dollar. I’ve written 300-page novels and 3-second TV promos. No matter what I do, I never forget that it’s all about the story. I am a creative, and that is the world I love.
