Commercial Photographer - Jason Buckner

I have been lucky enough to turn my childhood hobby into my career. I moved to London in 1993 to study for a degree in photography at The London College of Printing (now the London College of Communication) and I then went on to join Trinity Mirror as a staff photographer on its national newspaper titles.

I covered breaking news stories at home and abroad, interviews, features, fashion and reportage. I got to meet and photograph politicians, sports and entertainment legends and ordinary people who found themselves in extraordinary situations.

After nine years, I left there in 2002 to go freelance in order to widen my client base. I went on to shoot editorial content for many of the national newspapers and magazines. I’ve also shot for PR companies such as Frank, Freud Communications and Kazoo. My clients have ranged from Marks and Spencer, Nike and Next. I have also travelled to many wonderful countries and shot for the charities Oxfam and Worldvision in Africa and India.

Over the years I have been lucky enough to win a few awards for my pictures and I’ve had the privilege of working with some remarkable people. I now live by the sea with my wife and two dogs down in Southsea.
