Not very often do we get the opportunity to photograph a lifestyle session for a local musician. Surrey local, Richard Tichelman is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter, who’s original songs range in pop/folk/country genres. This talented young man has been playing for the last several years all over the lower mainland, and it was a delight to photograph him in our local area doing what he loves.
2018 has been a big year for Richard. He started off the year with a trip to LA to record 3 new songs, and has been working on progressing his music journey with Big Billy Clark at his side. His shows this year have him performing at the Roxy Cabaret, Rocking Abby Strong Fundraiser, Cloverdale Rodeo, Calgary Stampede, Rockin’ River Music Festival, our White Rock Sea Fest & Canada Day and other local performances. Richard also won the Don Weldon Memorial Award for most promising performer at the Calgary Stampede along with a duet partner, Madison Bell.
It was a pleasure to photograph Richard in one of my favourite spots, under the overpass located at King George and Colebrook Road. The location is the right mix of outdoor and urban and we have shot a variety of different sessions there. There area number of great places to shoot lifestyle photos in the South Surrey, White Rock, and Langley areas depending on what final look you would like for your photo session.
Richard’s photos are being used for his promotional materials and on his website – take a look at www.tichelman.com to see more of this talented young man and his music.
