Richard Gottardo is a photographer originating form Toronto, Canada. Having many varied interests, photography is the one force that binds his life together. He prides himself in being able to capture dramatic landscape photos in which nature is the stage and weather puts on the beautiful displays that complete the photograph. Countless hours are spent studying weather patterns and revisiting locations until the right conditions all come together to produce extraordinary scenes.
Richard is also an avid storm chaser, thriving in conditions that most would take shelter from in order to capture nature at it’s most raw and beautiful. These scenes are by far the most exciting and extraordinary displays that only extreme weather conditions can deliver. Richard’s ultimate goal is to travel the world documenting extreme weather and natural phenomenon up close in order to capture the beauty of these scenes and share it with the world.
His Photographs have been displayed in galleries and magazines throughout North America and the UK.
