Howard Fricker 1975 RAF Leconfield

Howard Fricker in 1975 whist serving at RAF Leconfield

Welcome to my website. I trained as a photographer when I joined the Royal Air Force in 1966 and I have been involved in taking photographs ever since. I am based in the north of England in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

I like to keep my work as simple and straightforward as possible, I eschew props and fussy backdrops and prefer normal everyday settings.
I concentrate mainly on nude figure and portrait photography and endeavour to bring out the sensuality and sexuality of the human form. My work has been shown in both single and joint exhibitions.

I work with all ages from young amateurs to mature amateurs and professionals too. I believe that mature models often bring something extra to the composition with their uninhibited poise and relaxed attitude to modelling and life in general.

I mainly work in B/W with stark contrasts which can create strong images.

I also do private commissions.

Any comments, enquiries or questions please get in touch.
