Estuary Press began in 1986 with the publication of Critical Focus, the Black and White Photographs of Harvey Wilson Richards.  During the following 25 years, Estuary Press archived and licensed the use of Harvey Richards’ film and photo images in over 70 films, television programs, books, and magazines. When the internet arrived, Estuary Press converted all 22 films and thousands of his still photo images to web compatible digital formats.  Estuary Press now offers the public, publishers, filmmakers and other media producers access to digital video on demand and over a thousand digitized photo images in image galleries on the web.

Estuary Press is also the temporary home of the Richards Cousins website about the Richards family, beginning with Robert Richards of Wisconsin, Harvey’s grandfather. The Richards Cousins website will soon find its own independent home and a new format that will allow active participation of family members now spread out around the globe.
