A professional photographer with 25 years industry experience.
Clive started taking pictures at the tender age of 10, and throughout secondary school he snapped away at school events, football matches and anything that caught his eye for a great shot.
Leaving School, Clive went into the retail trade, spending 6 years on the high street with Marks and Spencer, where he learnt the importance of customer care. Alongside the value of delivering great service.
Choosing to study part time, he then focused in on his true passion, photography. And after spending two years at Nelson and Colne College, landed his first full time job in the local press, which did at alongside being, Club photographer at Burnley Football Club.
After 6 years working for titles across Lancashire and Greater Manchester, Clive gained the role at the Lancashire Telegraph as Chief Photographer. There he spent the next 13 years photographing everything from, Royal visits, music festivals, school events, premier league football and just about everything else that happened across the borough.
During those days his work was recognised both locally and on a national level with eight award nominations over a seven year period.
Picking up the Newsquest Photographer of the year award twice, once from the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, along with the BNFL North West Photographer of the year, were real highlights during that period.
With that time served, he then chose to establish his own company and move his career on to the next stage. Now seven years down the line and with as diverse client range as ever, his passion and drive remain same as that of the small 10 year old boy who took his first picture all those years ago.
