Julian Claxton Photography Online event galleries
Around 10 years ago I made the exciting step of realising my dream of becoming a freelance photographer. Since this pivotal moment, I have held numerous exhibitions, been featured nationally & internationally in print and won numerous awards, including the 2015 Travel Media Awards for one of my documentary images of children in rural Uganda, the 2016 Event Photography Awards for ‘Election day’ documentary, 2017 Event Photography Awards for "Morning Prayer" in Uganda, alongside becoming "highly commended" in the Sony World Photographic Competition 2017, with images exhibited at Somerset House. I have been fortunate enough to work on some amazing assignments which have included shooting a documentary assignment with an air ambulance, gaining full access to a British Pro cycling team during an international UCI tour, cycling to Rwanda and creating a photographic documentary of my journey. The experiences continue to grow, meeting wonderful people to photograph and telling the story of their journey. The list of events and striking moments that have played out through my viewfinder continue to flourish and provide me with ever increasing snapshots of life to capture. One of the highlights of my career thus far has been the photographic projects and workshops I have developed in rural Uganda, teaching photography to the kids from the region, in a project I set up in late 2014, entitled ‘Give a child a camera’.
Lots of lovely cameras and lenses!
