About David Osborn Photography 03

First Class BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design, Camberwell School of Art, London. After university, taken on with Reuters News Agency in London. Eventually working full time, often working seven days a week. A multi-skilled job; news photographer, picture editor and picture desk manager. Film processing, printing, caption writing, wire transmission and then planning event coverage. Worked for every national paper in Fleet Street, London and also AP and AFP. Through regular London embassy work, a set of my images are in the archives of the Royal Collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. News photography is the best education to think about pictures in a functional, fast and natural way. An invaluable skill I carried over to all my later photography. After London, I worked in Asia shooting color photo-stories for a year to push myself up to the next level. I spent six months in the jungles of Mindanao, Philippines covering the Muslim fight for independence; covering both sides of the insurgency. Moved to Sydney, Australia in 1990 and worked on The Australian Newspaper. Then set up photographic studio in Sydney, shooting corporate work and annual reports for electronic company’s. Back to London in 2000 and began shooting Airports and Ports around the world for a publishing company, then BAA who owned London’s Heathrow Airport.
