About Andy Paradise
Andy Paradise has been a professional photographer since the start of 2000.
The previous year, he left the Kent Institute of Art & Design with a 2:1 BA Hons Degree in ‘Editorial and Advertising Photography’ although his learning of the medium began much earlier in the labs of Pinewood Film Studios. Since the start of 2000, Andy primarily worked for the UK broadsheet newspaper ‘The Independent’ as a staff photographer but going freelance at the beginning of 2003.
During his time as a staff photographer, he went on a wide variety of assignments from portraits of A-list US actors to gritty news and politics. After just nine months of professional working, he secured himself his first award at the ‘Picture Editors Awards’ for best Black & White image of 2000.
Since going freelance he has taken on a variety of other clients (see client list) and has also been pursuing other areas of the medium, which hold interest for him. The dedication, timing and patience he brings to each assignment ensures he will get the best images from a subject and that the ‘definitive moment’ is always captured.
About Jeremy Selwyn
Press photographer Jeremy Selwyn has worked for the Evening Standard for nearly thirty years. His job has taken him around the world attending great sporting moments and history making news events.
But it is his daily observations of London life which will resonate most with the readers of the Evening Standard
He has photographed the changing faces in Downing Street as Prime Ministers come and go and his multi award winning career was recognised again last year when he was recognised as the National Newspaper Photographer of the Year with his dramatic image of Grenfell Tower ablaze.
Jeremy said: “As a photographer your job is to record history as it happens but this was one night, a night where so many people lost their lives, that I really don’t want to remember. So, although it’s a huge accolade, it’s tinged with sadness for me.”
