Over the past thirty years, he has divided his time between television and photo-journalism. He was a foreign correspondent for NIR-TV based in Tehran, reporting extensively from around the world – the civil war in Lebanon, the first democratic elections in Portugal, the uprising in India and assassination of Indira Gandhi, and the coronation of the cannibal “Emperor” Jean-Bedel Bokassa in the Central African Empire. This was followed by a period as On-Screen News and Current Affairs Reporter/Producer for Granada TV from where he went to the BBC as writer/producer and then to Channel 4 “Cutting Edge”.
Throughout his career in television and the media, he has taken a special interest in documenting the world’s festivals, rituals, ceremonies, and celebrations. Let’s Celebrate 365 is the result of this life-long interest and work, and an exhibition derived from these is currently touring England and Europe.
As a photo-journalist, he specializes in Travel Reportage and contributes to The Sunday Times, The Telegraph Magazine, The Sunday Telegraph Magazine, The Guardian, Mail on Sunday, Bunte, Conde Nast Traveller, GEO, Stern, Epoca, Wanderlust and many other travel-related magazines. His reportages have been recognized with two UNESCO awards.
