Richard Bugg

Exhibition: Wild – Time Critical

For the last 20 years, Richard has been a Paramedic based in Hobart, working both in urban environments and in remote locations across Tasmania. To reach the more far-flung places he travels by helicopter, by foot, and occasionally, by boat.

Before working as a paramedic, Richard trained in Outdoor Education, and made a living as a tour guide on the Overland Track, and in National Parks including Frenchman’s Cap and the Walls of Jerusalem. The skills and experience gained as a guide later assisted Richard when he commenced work in the wilderness response squad as a paramedic.

In parallel with his work in the outdoors, and as a paramedic, Richard has a long-standing passion for photography. Over the years, he has undertaken corporate, wedding, portrait and editorial photographic assignments, in addition to personal projects.
