I am a Staff News and Features Photographer for the Daily Mirror based in London. I have been a Press photographer for over 25 years. I was seriously injured whilst on assignment for the Mirror in Helmand Provence, Afghanistan when an I.E.D. blast hit the U.S. Marine vehicle in which I was travelling in 2010. I lost my lower legs and broke my back and spent 4 months in hospital. I returned to work later that year.
