Richred, an affectionate nickname, has grown into a respected name in the industry with a reputation for high-quality work across the production platform.

Creativity has always been my passion and after obtaining a Degree in Fine Art with majors in painting and photography I turned to the art of filmmaking with the camera as my tool.

Its this solid foundation in the arts that I draw on, allowing me to develop a creative visual style driven cinematically by my love for story telling and a passion for the natural world. My desire to reveal the many layers of any story pushes me to hunt for those special moments, the gems, which gives any film a unique insight and edge.

We have been working with Richard for the past 6 years. Richard became soon part of Southern Wind Shipyard family as the person responsible for all our video production and post-production. His professionalism combined with a deep understanding of our needs and a unique personality make working with him an absolute pleasure!


Rich was recommended from within a UK network and he did not disappoint. The brief was absolutely nailed and then some. Taking a sensitive subject matter the interviews were beautifully lit and lensed to perfection. Communication and flexibility were brilliant, and technically we could not have asked for more.

Richard Kruger was my cameraman during a story for public television in Germany (ARD) - and he did a great job. Not only did Richard consistently shoot great, high-quality images on each of the five days of shooting. He also kept the theme of the feature in mind at every moment of production, and consistently incorporated it into the image design for the visuals. He worked with commitment and efficiency at all times. He worked quickly without any loss of quality at any point. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with this cameraman.

To the Air Jaws Team -- I am reaching out to report that the final deliverables have been signed off on by the network and Air Jaws Ultimate Breach Off will premiere Sunday night to kick off Shark Week 2020 for the Discovery network.

I want to thank everyone for pulling this show off, but I have a much more profound sense of gratitude at the finish line on this one. For the early mornings, cold nights and long hours, for the patience and professionalism, for your commitment and passion -- especially to the South Africa crew -- THANK YOU. Your hard work is greatly and sincerely appreciated.

Working with RichRed Productions on a behind-the-scenes (EPK/DVD) project for a major motion picture was not only one of the most successful experiences of my career, it was also one of the most enjoyable. Richard’s knowledge, skill, drive and overall personality are unmatched… and the quality of his work made me look good! I cannot wait to work with him and his team again.


We hired Richard to shoot the EPK footage for the Daniel Craig movie Flashbacks Of A Fool, as is always the case with this type of filming we need a crew that is sensitive and discreet around the filmmakers but also resourceful and adaptable to get the shots we need. Needless to say Im looking forward to working with Richard and his team again; he was also a terrific host and made me very welcome during my stay in Cape Town.

Richard is one of those rare cinematographers whose instincts are spot on, whose images are crisp and beautiful, and whose work ethic is inspired and collaborative. If I lived in South Africa, I would hire Richard on every shoot I could.
