One of my great pleasures is to photograph the exceptional - and rare - places where Nature is still undisturbed. The 40 or so Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserves are all over the county and range from coast to Broads, woodland to heath. I've photographed most of them over the last 10 years, and all have provided me with magical experiences of just 'being in Nature' as well as sightings of beautiful and rare wildlife. My favourite images can be found here. The full collection can be viewed here. I hope they inspire you to visit your local nature reserve and do everything you can to preserve the natural world, which is under intense pressure from human activities and decisions.
We have found that these types of image are perfect for artworks - especially in healthcare, where the healing presence of the natural world can help heal patients up to 20% quicker than other types of art or if there is no art on the walls. These also work very well in offices and conference centres where a welcoming and calming atmosphere helps get the best productivity out of people and environments. Contact us for further information about how we can transform and uplift your working environments.

Our latest collection was taken in Summer 2016 in one of the most beautiful and remote parts of Britain - the far North West of Scotland. As always, all images are very high resolution with many panoramics that give extraordinarily high quality results at full-wall size. Contact us if you'd like to put some of this loveliness on the walls of your latest project! See the full collection here. P4L20 Cul Mor, Coigach, Scotland, UK
Our latest images are a collection of 67 super-high resolution panoramic marbles. These can be printed on glass, wallpaper, vinyl, fabric, canvas and make an excellent, low cost alternative to real marble. The greater functionality of some products actually makes them preferable to real marble and the panoramic format of our images means that full walls can be covered more easily without repeats. The full selection of our Backgrounds and Textures, including marble, stone, rock, tree barks and many others can be viewed here.
Working on a large installation in London last year allowed me to significantly update my London images collections.

Recent installations at UHSM Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester used a number of my images - especially Peak District panoramics and many wildflower images. You can read more about them by clicking the image below:
Another recent installation was at Salford Royal, this time in the Outpatients waiting areas and Theatre Corridor. See more by clicking the image below:
Our installation schedule has been such that most of last year's images haven't been processed yet! Watch this space for updates.
You may have noticed that this website has had a bit of a Spring clean. It should make it easier to navigate around the images. I'm also now on lots of other social media platforms - Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr - with more coming. Click the links at the top right to connect with me there.

This brochure contains selected images from a unique collection of super-high resolution images, one of the first available in the UK. Taken by British photographic artist Richard Osbourne over 12 years, it contains a wide range of photographs of Britain and other countries, plus many abstract images suitable for textures and pattern backgrounds. All images have been taken on the highest quality equipment, using meticulous technique and have an integrity and quality that is immediately obvious when printed at large sizes.
Richard’s panoramic images in particular are unique: ranging from 500MB to 2GB, these are much higher resolution and often much wider than the panoramic images available on most stock libraries. High resolution images give a very satisfying sense of ‘being at the scene’ that cannot be matched by low resolution files that have been blown up to large sizes. You won’t find pixellation, ‘jaggies’, blotches, poor colour in any of these images when used at larger sizes. The panoramic images range from 3:1 up to 10:1 aspect ratios: a 3m high wall could have an image up to 30m long with no repeats!
