Photographer Giles Penfound on Storytelling with the Art of Photography


Giles Penfound is a photographer with an engrossing past and a story to tell. Penfound began his journey as a professional photographer over 25 years ago and spent most of his time documenting military operations from within the British Army. Documentary photographer Neale James approached Penfound to produce a short film about his life and work, and the result is the inspirational 30-minute video above. (Note: the video contains some strong language.)

Penfound explores the images he created around the world while bringing the individuals and emotions within each frame to life. After leaving the military, Penfound began commercial work for prestigious clients, including the National Maritime Museum and the British Museum. Currently, he maintains his website “Pictures on a Page,” which showcases his work from cities around the world. His original wartime work from Bosnia, Iraq, and Fallujah can also be viewed on it.
