I was born in Scotland in 1964 and have been a photographer for 26 years – starting 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 as Senior News Photographer in 2005.
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 recently was named as Pulitzer finalist for my images of the Arab Spring.
