Born in Philadelphia in 1952, Richard Bram grew up in Ohio, Utah and Arizona, where he finished High School, College and Graduate School. He earned degrees in Political Science and International Business. A series of jobs led him to Louisville, Kentucky, where, in 1984, he lost his head and decided to pursue photography full-time as a vocation. He built his early career in public relations, public events, performance and portrait work.

After moving to London in 1997, Richard concentrated on street photography and other personal photographic projects. In July of 2008 he returned to the States, now living in the financial District of New York City. His work is in institutional, corporate, and personal collections, including the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography.
