Whether it’s his work as an award-winning international news photographer, portraits by royal appointment or his PR and Corporate photography seen in publications around the globe, Ian’s photographs have always reflected his position at the forefront of his profession. During 15 years attached to The Daily Telegraph (1992-2007), Ian’s assignments took him all over Britain and to more than 100 countries worldwide. Whether it was capturing the Iraq War with 16 Air Assault Brigade or on the ski slopes of the Alps Ian’s work attracted some of the industry’s highest awards including News Photographer of the Year. It is as a royal photographer that Ian is probably best-known. From 1992 to the present, he has recorded at all the great state occasions. He toured the world with the late Diana, Princess of Wales, being invited to join her private entourage as she led her campaign against landmines in the developing world. When the Royal Family appointed someone to take 18th birthday photographs of Prince William at Eton, they picked Ian. Over the years, his rigorous professionalism in all situations has earned him the respect of both those he photographs and of his peers - hence the award in 1998 of the Royal Photographer of the Decade.
