Hello and thanks for visiting my website. I specialize in architecture, outdoor adventure, and landscapes. I was drawn to photography at a fairly young age (before cell phones and social media!) but it wasn't until a trip to Nepal in 1991 that I really took to it. I always go the extra mile to satisfy my clients and strive to deliver the highest quality work possible, regularly allocating time to stay current with new gear, technology, techniques, and software. I've shot over a billion dollars worth of properties for a variety of realtors, builders, and architects who demand the best. I also do editorial and commercial work in the areas of outdoor adventure and landscapes. And of course all the photos I take with no commercial agenda, I just like taking photos. A number of stock agencies license my work throughout the world, links can be found below, or feel free to contact me directly with any stock requests. My free time is spent riding bikes, hiking, backpacking, skiing, canyoneering, and generally exploring the outdoors. I'm also active on Instagram and Facebook if you would like to follow along, links are on the left side of the screen.
Whit Richardson Photography
3231 Carroll Ave
Moab, Utah 84532
At the core of great marketing initiatives is exceptional imagery, and the work of photographer, Whit Richardson is among the very best I’ve seen in North America. While many people can gather technical skill over time, or use post-production methods to heighten effect, Whit has that rare gift of artistry that cannot be taught, merely emulated. Since he and I began working together nearly a decade ago, I have seen my real estate business grow ten-fold to a level that now includes roughly $350m in luxury property listings. I can say, without hesitation, that without his exceptional photographic work on my behalf, I would not have been able to achieve these levels of success in a such a highly competitive business. Whit’s ability to capture the essence of a remarkable setting and his commitment to quality has helped set my marketing apart from my competitors; while his dedication to get the difficult shot in the perfect dawn or evening light is a standard that satisfies the most discriminating clients I represent. Both his interior and exteriors work have that consistent dynamism that I am proud to employ across all forms of media in my business, and though he’d never mention it, his images of properties have been showcased in the Wall St Journal, Forbes Magazine, Sotheby’s Auction House, NY Times, The North Face & Patagonia catalogs, to name but a few. Whit works quickly and efficiently and I feel his costs are both reasonable & readily justifiable, while the value he delivers is worth every dime. Lastly and most importantly, he’s a honest guy and a good person who I would recommend to anyone serious about growing their business while committed to the highest standards of quality. Feel free to contact me through my information below.

Whit's creative eye and amazing photographs are inspiring. His talents extend in many different categories, from capturing incredible landscape images in remote and hard to reach places to creating amazing, desirable imagery of carefully lit architectural homes, ranches, farms and condos. His attention to detail is notable and the colors of all his images are vibrant and rich. His talent is elevated to the realm of fine art in all he does. Also, Whit's communication is timely, clear and he follows through on his commitments. I've hired him for years and consider him the Leonardo Da Vinci of the Four Corners and beyond!

I've been working with Whit for 3 years photographing for a real estate project and it has been an excellent experience. He is professional and has great communication skills. His work is the best of the best and his editing is magic. I highly recommend him.

Sifting through the photos now and we're extremely happy with how everything turned out. Just wanted to reach out and say thank you for the great quality and extremely quick turnaround with this project.
I put your photos up on VRBO one week ago. We've had three bookings in that one week.
Whit, we had three bookings all last year!
Amazing! Can't wait to see what's to come.
