I am UK based with well over thirty years experience as a news, editorial and corporate photographer.
Between 1994 and 2008 I was a staff photographer with The Times Supplements. Since 2008 I have had a portfolio career which also involves shooting editorial and corporate assignments, writing about and teaching photography as well as working as a photo editor on very large sports events with world class teams of photographers.
I have been on the Board of The British Press Photographers’ Association since its reformation in 2003 – holding the offices of Website Editor and Vice Chairman for many years before becoming the Association Secretary in 2016. My two proudest moments in that time were representing The BPPA at the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the press in February 2012 and the publication of Five Thousand Days in 2005.
Since 1999 I have published websites and blogs offering my insights and experiences to anyone who wants to read them. The technique pages of dg28.com became very successful and lead to invites to lead seminars and teach location lighting and workflow in the UK, Europe and north America.
