Editorial photography

From landscapes for walking guides to coverage of the Marco Polo Expedition and a great deal of photography for my books, I’ve been lucky enough to have had many photographs published. I’ve been able to photograph what I want, more or less when I want, and how I want.

And that is mostly to record things exactly as I first saw them.

All images are available as archival-quality giclée prints, unframed or framed. Please contact me for prices.

If had a ‘favourite’ subject, it would be people – human beings whose lives intersect with mine for a tiny sliver of space and time. Each image records my relationship with each stranger, so I try to ensure that is one of respect and dignity.
What would editorial photography without landscapes to give a sense of the land, editorialised and highly selective though they are, the fact of their presence at the scene counts for much.
If I can’t get close to people, I still like them in the image. ‘Street photography’, ‘candid photography’ l ‘people in the landscape‘ – call it what you will, the places would be only spaces without the life that people bring.
Pictures of buildings and cityscapes do not interest me unless they offer a backdrop or view that illuminates and comments. It is more rewarding to find a new or unconventional way to see the familiar.
