During a career spanning more than three decades, Ian‘s award-winning photography – in every field from portraiture to war – has been published and admired around the world.
It is for his royal work that he is best known. During 15 years as the Daily Telegraph’s royal photographer (from 1992 to 2007) he not only covered all the major state occasions but was also invited inside to capture private ones too. His images of the Queen and the Royal Family, at home and in more than 100 countries overseas, earned him many of the industry’s highest awards * . Such was the consistency and calibre of his work that he also received the rare accolade of Royal Photographer of the Decade.
When Diana, Princess of Wales was leading her campaign against landmines, she asked Ian to join her entourage and illustrate her work to a global audience. When St James’s Palace wanted a pictorial record of Prince William at 18, it was Ian who worked with the birthday Prince to produce an historic set of images.
