I have been working in press photography since 1996 as both a picture editor and a photographer. Newspaper photography has a phenomenal ability to inform, inspire and astonish and I count myself privileged to have been able to make it my career
As technology and the industry evolves I have developed skills in video production, long scale time lapse photography, training, content management systems, digital transmission and web site creation.
My current employer is SWNS, the largest independent press agency in the UK. I love the daily challenge of of what we do, where our success is only limited by our imagination. Our product is content for newspapers, TV and magazines – winners, losers, heros, villans, grinners and sinners all fall within our remit. Everyday we pluck astonishing stories from obscurity and launch them into the mainstream media. My part in this is to co-ordinate our 18 photographers, to seek out exciting new contributors and to be the point of contact for our newspaper clients.
