I began earning money from photography at the tender age of 12, after my father got me interested two years earlier. Dad bought me an old Goertz press camera and I started to put together local interest photo stories for our local papers.My first job at 14 with a Fleet Street London press agency, washing prints. I tried to get them interested in my stories. I met with some opposition and left for another agencies darkroom, they liked the stories and distributed them on a freelance basis. By 16 I was and still am, the youngest press photographer in The UK.

Soon I was covering all the normal events and in the evening started to take freelance shots outside theatres etc., of our Royals. This led to becoming an accredited Royal photographer and going on overseas Royal tours and having one to one sittings with political heads and Royals abroad. A two year National Service stint in the Royal Air Force, meant more overseas travel and on my demob I rejoined the agency to continue more Royal work. Head hunted by IPC the UK's largest magazine group, I continued along the same lines but thought too much travel for my bride of two years, Joan bless her, now had our son and daughter, so I embarked on an advertising career in the hope that travelling would diminish.

Clients as diverse as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ford, Toyota andJaguar cars. Johnson and Evinrude outboards. Martini and a host of Tourist Boards etc. became my lot. A tough life, beautiful models, first class hotels in super locations. The downside, dawn to dusk work. Always a keen swimmer and acrobatic diver, I became interested in underwater photography and won the coveted Confederation Mondial Aquatic Subaqua world championships three times? I am now proud to offer you the chance to enjoy some of my work here on Fineartamerica. Thanks Derek.
