Picture Research

I am a professional Picture Researcher and Editor with over 25 years experience. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of researching new and old subject matter and bringing the project in on time and under budget. I love the creative side of picture research, utilising lateral thinking to overcome problems. If you expect your researchers merely to send out briefs to libraries and collate the incoming images, I’m afraid I’m not the researcher for you.

My background is primarily in partwork magazines, working to weekly and fortnightly deadlines and researching new subjects for development projects. I have worked with Eaglemoss Publications, Hachette Partworks, GE Fabbri, Thema, Redhouse Creativity,  Byline and Rich T Media on various titles – and I have also had experience of the ‘other side’, working for one lovely summer at Mary Evans Picture Library, and occasionally filling in when needed.

Below are some of the projects I’ve worked on – but if you’d like a full list or would like to discuss your picture research requirements, please contact me:
