Meet a #Canberra foodie: Richard @richardtuffin

Posted on Updated on

Our latest foodie interview is with Richard from . Richard is well known amongst #Canberra tweeps as he has been a regular organiser of #cbrtweetup over recent years. I think I first met Richard at a nearby winery where he dazzled us with his knowledge of Australian wine and appreciation of good cuisine and local wineries. Richard’s passion for Canberra (and photography that promotes our beautiful city) has led to him being a regular in local media with recent forays in the Canberra Times and on ABC 666 radio. He’s a long-time Canberran who loves this city and loves promoting it on a daily basis. He’s also a passionate AFL fan, following his beloved Carlton Blues. Richard is a proud progressive who wears his political heart on his sleeve. And it’s a big heart! I joined Richard for brunch at his favourite local eatery, Tilley’s in Lyneham.

Who are you Richard?  I’m a father who enjoys everything Canberra has to offer. I love photography and recently started doing it professionally. I’m also experienced in Social Media and website constuction (WordPress, Drupl, Dreamweaver). If you like to hire a photographer for your function (corporate, family, weddings, etc.) you can contact me and check out my photos through my Google plus page.
