Ed has freelanced on over 2000 professional assignments for magazines and organisations over the years. He got his big break at the Job Centre in Folkestone in 2004 when he found a position available as a local holiday camp photographer.

Since then he has worked on assignments all over the world, covering topics as diverse as those he chooses for his own projects: Celebrity portraiture on location for GQ Italy, reportage photography at the Goodwood Vintage Revival for Audi, conference and event coverage for The United Nations Association and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation or creating commercial imagery for various charities, TV channels and tech companies.

An experienced photographer; he has worked as a reportage photographer who can photograph anything that is happening and as a portrait photographer both on location and in the studio.
