This Monday we welcome Steve Burton to the Society.

Steve will be presenting in the first half of the meeting (the second half is our motion/movement ‘just for fun’ competition).

With a career starting in Fleet Street over 30 years ago Steve has worked for many of the national news titles and had numerous front pages.

The career of a Fleet Street photographer has changed massively in this time and Steve will present his story of his time during the changing nature of the newspaper world which also embraces the massive changes in technology during this time.

Expect a presentation full of anecdotes from the decades, some of which won’t be suitable for a family audience!!

Rose West, Rev Paul Flowers, Tottenham Riots, Jihadi John and many more.

It’s the first time Steve has presented to a photographic society and it should be very interesting, and a little different to many talks.

As well as still working freelance for national newspapers Steve also runs Smartpics UK, an event photography company.
