I am a freelance news, corporate and commercial photographer living near London. I started out on local newspapers in south London. I then progressed to cover assignments all over the world for The Independent and The Daily Telegraph newspapers. I also worked for Reuters before joining Getty Images for ten years as Senior News Photographer. My work has been recognised with awards from the ‘Picture Editor’s Awards’. I have also been named News Photographer of The Year by the ‘Press Photographer’s Year Awards’ and was named as Pulitzer finalist for my images of the Arab Spring.
