My Occupation Creative director, art director, designer, photographer
My Bio I studied graphic design at Norwich School of Art, but my first job was as an art director at J Walter Thompson, for clients such as Guinness, the RAF, The Guardian, Remy Martin and Kellogg's (launching Crunchy Nut Cornflakes). In 2003 I realized one of my ambitions to launch my own agency, Keevill Lee Kershaw, with clients including Nectar, Kew Gardens, Alpha Telecom and F&C. In 2006 I joined Kitcatt Nohr Digitas as creative director. In 2008 I was privileged to be invited to judge the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, and in 2010 I judged Campaign's Photo Awards. Over more than thirty years in the advertising industry, I've been fortunate to work with, and learn from, some of the best photographers in the business, art directing shoots around the world. I now have the opportunity to put that learning into practice. Over the last couple of years, I have been commissioned by Waitrose, John Lewis, NS&I, RNIB, Toyota and Age UK.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
shooting on film: in the mid seventies, I spent a month travelling around Europe on the fabled Intererrail train pass. With three rolls of Kodachrome 25. That's right, 108 shots across 30 days. And I have to say, each and every one of them is great. I did take a great deal of care to make every frame count. Something we should remind ourselves about in this digital age.
