Born in Africa, brought up in the South Pacific and educated in the UK, Edward picked up a camera aged 12. Self-taught, the first taste of photographic success came aged 16, winning a regional newspaper competition and the offer of a job as a photographer. However, competing priorities and demands meant he went on to pursue a 15-year career as a diplomat. But photography was never far away. Manging to pursue both interests in parallel, Edward also forged a successful career as a freelance photographer.
Establishing a reputation as a man with a unique style and a flexible, collaborative approach, Edward found himself in demand and plenty of offers flowed in. Before long his work was featuring regularly in leading Japanese magazines, including Elle Japan, GQ Japan, The Rake, Mens Precious, Premium and Men`s Ex, as well as appearing in the New Yorker and magazines in the UK. More work followed, including from major corporations Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways. But he also found time to collaborate with smaller clients - including Italy`s Vitale Barberis Canonico, family owned and in continuous operation as one of the worlds leading textile mills since 1663; and London`s Lock & Co Hatters, founded in 1676 with royalty, Oscar Wilde, Winston Churchill and major Hollywood celebrities among their customers.
As if all this were not enough, Edward also worked with specialist Japanese publisher Banraisha to produce the book `Savile Row - A Glimpse Into The World of English Tailoring`. A healthy reception led to a sequel, `Bespoke Style - A Glimpse Into The World of British Craftsmanship`.
But with only 24 hours in a day and so much going on, something had to give - and it was a career in diplomacy. Today Edward is based in Manhattan and divides his time between working with clients and pursuing personal projects (lucky chap). He is happy to consider travel to more or less anywhere.
