An experienced cameraman and editor, who worked in television news for the better part of 30 years.

After earning my stripes in and around the political world of Westminster, I joined Sky News, which sent me on multiple assignments to Bosnia and then South Africa to cover Nelson Mandela’s election victory.

On joining The Associated Press (AP) as a Production Director, I taught news camera and VT editing techniques to the next generation. In 1997, I was transferred to Paris, where five months later, Princess Diana’s car crashed in the Pont d’Alma tunnel. I was on the scene an hour later.

​​

In 1998, the FIFA World Cup circus came to town, and in 2000, American network CNN sent me to Kosovo. For the next decade, I travelled Europe, working for the Americans and BBC News, notably Newsnight and Panorama.

​​

The inquisitive side of me wanted to explore a little further, so I moved into the world of news and editorial stills photography. In a short time, I had representation from NTI in the UK, World Picture News in New York, and Le Desk, a Paris-based agency. I took commissions from UK and American newspapers and magazines, along with covering ad-hoc breaking news and current affairs stories in and around the French capital.

​​

I lectured in television news production at the Ecole Supérieure de Journalisme, guiding students through production techniques and mentoring them prior to practical assignments.

After almost reaching the 20-year marker living and working in France, I returned to the UK, where I continue with news and editorial photography, as the Club photographer for Dorking Wanderers FC, and as an active member of the Industry Media Review Panel at Windsor Forest Colleges.
