Documentary Photographer

Hi, I’m Ed Thompson. In the past 15 years I’ve worked on over 700 professional photographic assignments for some of the world’s leading magazines and organisations.  From working for various U.K weekend magazines to GQ Italy and Newsweek Japan.

In that time I have also worked on dozens of personal projects covering various social and environmental issues which have then been exhibited and published globally. Without paid professional assignments I would not have been able to finance the Syrian Child Refugees in Lebanon series I made in 2013 or to continue running the budget photography school I started in East London to teach skint and talented photographers.

If you have any paid assignments for editorial, event photography, conferences, portraits, parties, annual reports, office interiors, landscapes, travel photography or any kind of reportage photography please get in touch.

I’d love to photograph for you.

Happy Clients

“ Ed has done a number of our team headshots for our company website as well as the photography for our company conferences and events. He makes people feel super comfortable, especially if they're a little nervous, and everyone is always so pleased with how they turn out. His passion for photography is very obvious and he has helped us develop a style for our company photos in keeping with our brand and tone. A pleasure to work with ”
“ A really great shoot that has made a really great job out of a very uninteresting day. ”
“ Ed is the most single minded photographer, like a trainspotter, but a photographer. He'd take a photograph whilst he fell out of a moving vehicle. ”
