The film Richard is a portrait of wandering piano tuner Richard Roberts while he explores the adventures of living without a fixed address. He classes himself as working homeless – a growing group who sleep rough by night, but then get up in the morning to go to work. Richard sees his lifestyle choice as an experiment of economics, convenience and environmental impact which he blogs about here.

8th Feb 2013 - I've taken some stills from the shoot with Richard as much of the footage never made the cut, especially interesting is the tuning of the first piano that couldn't be fixed. Enjoy!
