Philip Dunn has been a professional photographer for over 40 years
Philip Dunn has worked for almost every top newspaper and magazine in Britain and many others overseas.
Philip’s first published photograph was in the Manchester Evening News when he was just 14 years old.
At the age of 15, Philip Dunn was an apprentice photographer working on a local newspaper. He then worked for picture agencies and freelanced until, at the age of just 22, he became the youngest man ever to be invited to join the staff of The Daily Express, where, for fifteen years, he covered major hard news stories and features, including the ‘Troubles’ in Northern Ireland. He left the Express to go freelance again before working for The Sunday Times covering human interest features and travel.
“That was the best job in the world,” says Philip. “I worked with great professionals on a great newspaper.”
Philip Dunn has won many top professional awards including both News and Feature sections of the British Press Photographer of the Year Awards.
Below is a small selection of just some of Philip’s clients – all of whom have either commissioned him or published his photographs. Countless other newspapers, magazines and books have published Philip’s pictures and words, and he has published three books on photography.
