• I have been running PhotoArchiveNews.com reporting news from the stock and editorial photo industry since 1999.
The Press Photo History Project was created to research the history on newspaper photography and service photo copyright search requests.
My photo career started as a press photographer in the early 90’s shooting court case personalities outside the Old Bailey in London with the Photo News agency run by the busiest man in the business Jimmy Horton. Jimmy soon had me off the shoots and in the office selling photos and running prints into newspapers and press associations in and around Fleet Street …which is where my fascination with ‘The Street’ started.
I then spent a few years working for various other photo agencies and stock photo libraries covering sales, editing stock photos and coordinating photo assignments. In 2006 I started consulting to photo libraries and private collections covering projects for the London Fire Brigade, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mirror, The Times and the Cecil Beaton archive at Sotheby’s.

A photographer since I left school, I learnt my craft at Fleet Street press agency Fox Photos. Later at Keystone Press Agency, I covered news stories around London, including, the Iranian Embassy siege, the Brixton riots and the early days of Lady Diana. In the 1980’s I fell into photographing Princess Diana and the Royal Family.
I photographed Charles and Diana on Royal Tours around the world, visiting over fifty countries. I worked with Rex Features and Colorific!
I was also the UK photographer for New York agency Black Star, shooting news and annual reports. My work has been published by magazines, newspapers and websites around the world including Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Paris Match, La Vanguardia, Irish Times, Huffington Post, The Guardian, The Times, Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Sunday Times and The Observer. I am the only photographer ever given full, behind the scenes access, into the Bank of England, for a story that ran in the Daily Telegraph magazine. I now licence work through Getty Images and Alamy.
