I work with photography as a creative, as a communicator, and in business. My experience ranges from being Editor/Publisher of the magazine Creative Review, to leading the creative direction worldwide of the largest photo agency Getty Images, to producing a series of acclaimed books in which photography is the key. These include Photowisdom (Chronicle Books), where I interviewed 50 of the world's leading artists, ranging from David LaChapelle to Stephen Shore. I collaborate and advise photographers on making books, while also writing and editing archival images to make new works, such as the bestselling Life and Love of Trees (PQ Blackwell/Chronicle Books). I am on the board of the innovative Edinburgh-based online photo journal company Blipfoto and I advise several other organisations, including the non-profit PhotoVoice (www.photovoice.org) and guiding the Mobius Awards in the launch of a new commercial photography award.
