After studying Geography at Oxford, in the early 1970's Mike began his life as a photo-journalist by covering 'the Troubles' in Northern Ireland. Here he became associated with the New York picture agency, Black Star and over thirty years later he is still in the fortunate position of being paid to do what he loves doing - taking photographs.
Mike has visited over 60 countries around the world, working for a wide range of clients such as ABC-TV, BBC, Anti-Slavery International, British Red Cross, European Commission, National Geographic, New York Times, Shell, Time & Time Life. His most recent work is the acclaimed ‘Fields of Battle – Lands of Peace’ photographic exhibition of the battlefields of the Western Front. Mike is also a badged guide with the Guild of Battlefield Guides.
