Herbert Richard Lambert
|Died||7 March 1936 (aged 53–54)|
Herbert Richard Lambert, FRPS, (1882– 7 March 1936, 53-54 years of age at time of death) was a British portrait photographer known for his portrayals of professional musicians and composers including Gustav Holst.
In 1923 he published Modern British Composers: Seventeen Portraits in collaboration with Sir Eugene Goossens, and in 1926, he became managing director of the Elliott & Fry portrait studio. In 1930, he published Studio portrait lighting, a technical guidebook. He is also responsible for salvaging much of the 19th-century photography of Henry Fox Talbot, by re-photographing the remains of Talbot's photographs.
In addition to photography, Lambert was also an amateur maker of musical instruments, specialising in harpsichords and clavichords. In 1927, he lent a clavichord which he had built to Herbert Howells; Howells used it to compose a 12-piece collection, which he named "Lambert's Clavichord".
