Freelance Editorial and Press Photographer in Sheffield
Doug Jackson Photography is regularly commissioned by news agencies to shoot features and portraits.
Working as a Freelance Editorial and Press Photographer I cover not only Yorkshire but the whole of the North. I have been shooting editorial photography since 1999, starting my career as a press photographer.
Editorial photography tends to be photography that will accompany publications for articles, news and features. Thirty years ago that would have been newspapers and magazines exclusively, although it is now predominately online media.
The editorial section of the gallery includes photographs taken for newspapers and magazines and for agencies. These are either hard news, soft news or features.
Editorial photography is all about keeping in mind the central story and working sensitively with your subject and location. Being a good listener and cultivating a relaxed yet professional relationship ensures people will relax in front of the camera.
If time is available its always nice to stop and have a coffee with the person you are about to photograph. I love getting to know people who have an interesting tale to tell, which is pretty much everyone. People generally like it when you show an interest in who they are. If they are passionate about their story they will typically speak quite openly.
Some of my editorial clients include Marie Claire, Penguin Random House, Virgin Media, Caters news, Metro, Yorkshire Life, Women, The Daily Telegraph, Bike, and many more magazines and newspapers.
I started my career as a staff press photographer for the Yorkshire Regional Newspapers group. After working for many newspaper titles, including the Northern Echo, I established Doug Jackson Photography as a freelance business in 2005.
My photography has appeared in many magazines and all the national newspapers, covering both major regional events and ‘softer’ agency generated content. I am available for magazine commissions and feature work, regionally in Yorkshire, nationally and internationally.
