About Me

Richard McKenzieI am the Burly Photographer, my mum calls me Richard but I leave it to you what works best for you.

I have shot in London, Berlin, Frankfurt, New York, Austin, Reading and Southend.  I shoot Burlesque shows, Boudoir and lots of other things besides, I have a nice sideline in riots and demos if you’re interested – You can see a lot of this work on the blog.

The Burly Photographer has been in business for about 5 years and I started my career shooting the amazing Scarlet Vixens in Reading and have being building up my business ever since.

Don’t take my word for it, see what the amazing Tempest Rose, Burlesque royalty and CEO of the House of Burlesque, said about my work:

“Richard is a highly professional and friendly photographer, he does excellent work regularly at our Burlesque Idol shows at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him”
