Professional Photographer and Editor of The RPS Contemporary Times Stewart Wall is in.
Stewart's first job back in the 70s was on a local newspaper just outside London in Brentwood. He had a spell working for the national newspapers before moving into commercial and portrait photography. He now works as a freelance editorial and portrait photographer.
Currently he, his wife Shona a freelance writer and subeditor and 8 year old daughter live in the Lincolnshire Wolds, some 200 miles from London. The rest of their family remain in Essex and Lincolnshire.
But the capital pulls him back in for regular photoshoots and assignments. He loves the unexpected, the red telephone box, now a Photo Booth, the squirrels who you associate with the countryside and running from humans and how in London they will feed from your hand. How you can see the changing of the guard as though its street entertainment, the characters you can see in the crowds and the skyline of the future mixed with the established. There is so much to see and record.
Stewart is happy to get on board the Bleeding London Project and is planning events for the Contemporary Group to bring their unique way of seeing to the pack, events will be open to all.
