Patrick Ward came into reportage photography in the 1960s, which was something of a golden age. The British Sunday newspapers were just starting their colour magazines and their editors were sending a new generation of young photographers worldwide in search of picture stories.
By his mid twenties Patrick was travelling across Latin America and Mexico for the Sunday Times Magazine returning with ten and twelve page picture essays for the Magazine. Since then he has worked with the Telegraph Magazine, German and French Geos, The Smithsonian Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, National Geographic Books and Time Life Books. He produced six books; the latest “Essentially English” is a fascinating portrait.
Patrick, an astute observer of the human condition, enjoys photography enormously and much of his work is now self-commissioned. He believes that it is really important to get out and shoot the stories that interest him personally and he still gets that adrenaline rush when he manages to be in the right place at the right moment!
Patrick has an infectious enthusiasm for photography and his presentation promises to be very informative and entertaining.
