After graduating from Don Bosco Secondary School, Richard studied Visual Communications at Loyola College, Chennai in 1997. He then subsequently began assisting K. V. Anand and worked on Khakee (2004) and Sivaji (2007). He received a nomination from the Vijay Awards for the Best Cinematographer category for his work in his debut venture, Vasanthabalan's Angadi Theru (2010), where he shot on the streets of the crowded Ranganathan Theru in Chennai. During the auditions for the film, he set out with a friend and a borrowed HD camera, spending 24 hours on the street and came back with a video which impressed Vasanthabalan, which made him sign Richard on for the film in 2007. Critics also praised his work describing "his shots were among the highlights" of the film, "with superb night effect shots of Chennai streets". He was subsequently chosen by K. V. Anand to be the cinematographer for Ko (2011), winning acclaim for his shots in Norway and his work in the songs.
