about this website, my pictures and me

My name is Richard Kraning. This is my private website and photography is my favourite leisure pursuit. It is something I love to do and I’m lucky enough that I don’t have to earn money with my pictures. This leaves me with ample room to experiment and the possibility to take my pictures and style in whichever direction I want.


For me, the most fascinating fields of photography are portraiture and fashion photography, even though I do like street photography as well. Trying to really capture the essence of someone or something in a single shot is very challenging - to say the least. “Borderline impossible“ might be a more fitting description. Maybe this is what captivates me and makes me eager to explore new horizons in the world of portraiture and fashion photography.
