Few photographers in the world have photographed as many animals in studio as Randal Ford. At the heart of every image lies a deep respect for the majesty of wildlife and a resounding recognition of their powerful presence. Ford’s precise process of creating simple yet powerful portraits is highly technical and requires unwavering patience, dedication, and attention to detail. The result is a timeless collection of compelling animal portraits that provide an intimate window into the soul of each animal.
In the light of the studio, every animal stands on its own—heroic, mysterious, even charismatic—and while every portrait allows us to see the personality of each animal, Ford believes that we also experience a rare glimpse into the most mystical and elusive breed of all— ourselves.
Randal Ford’s works have been showcased in two visual monographs published by Rizzoli New York, as well as the cover of Time Magazine, 20 Texas Monthly covers, USA Today, and the cover of Communication Arts. He has received numerous awards and accolades across multiple industries. Randal Ford’s large format, limited edition works reproduce at scale with stunning detail, incredible depth, and a level of sharpness rarely seen in other animal photographs.
