I came joint 2nd in the Canon Iconic image competition, with the photo, Pushed aside.

Pushed Aside was taken as I went in behind the riot police at the G8 riots in London. I had slipped in-between the riot police as they made their way down to the main headquarters of the protestors, I followed the Police through, exiting out straight out the other side of the protest and getting photos from the other side of the protest.

Press Release – Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society

I have been awarded Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society for the overall standard and broad range of my work. In my submission I covered Documentary, Portrait, music and event photography.

Rupert is well travelled with a broad education in Print, Graphic Design and Photography, working out of Hong Kong and Australia for 2 and 8 years respectively. Since childhood, he has been totally passionate about photography. Through combined studies, he has broadened his skill base and gained experience by working for such companies as Disney, Arco Chemical, Keybank [formally Keycorp] and Apple. Alongside, he ran his own company and platform for new artists more recently design services and Photography.

Rupert submitted 10 Images which showed a cross range of my skills from shooting documentary work, through to live performance, each with its own challenge weather it be timing, proximity to the subjects, getting the shot in challenging situations or just telling a story.

Over the past 3 years rupert has faced challenges after having his neck broken, resulting in him being registered disabled,  by a gang member who was later convicted, while working on a project showing how the Haygate estate in London, which is being redeveloped was changing showing the decay of the buildings as residents were moved out.

Rupert is a Royal Photographic Society Licentiate, [LRPS] and National Union of Journalists (NUJ) accredited Photographer, trained in Print Design with an MA in Graphic Design; both disciplines being close to his passion for photography. Between 1995 – 1997, Rupert was working for Disney and Arco Chemical where he was a freelance designer. One assignment for the Discovery Channel, involved closing off part of Sydney Harbour Bridge while he filmed the crossing of a horse drawn carriage.

Upon his return to London in 2007, he took up work as a ‘Creative’ with Apple.  He also photographed gigs with Caffy St Luce of Rocklands and Heather Minx Ferguson of Minx Media TV.  They look after many young, talented, up-and-coming musicians. Nowadays, he covers ‘This Feeling’. His photo of Shaun Ryder, formerly of the ‘Happy Mondays’ and ‘Brother’ made the nationals.  Among many other photographed acts, there are Mark Morris of The Bluetones, Jon Fratelli, Molly McQueen and ‘The View’ The Rifles. Photos are still available at ThisFeeling.co.uk and Naz Promotions.

Recently, Rupert has also covered local community events such as Brockley Max, Camden Crawl for Getty images, Joyzine, Lewisham People’s Day. Another challenging  show was the prestigious CMJ Event at The Hit Factory for Gibson in their head quarters in New York City, USA. Whilst there, Rupert also covering various gigs and shoots for the publication ‘Music Live’.  Currently, Work with 9PR is also inspirational and exciting.

CNN approached Rupert to contribute iReports – providing such pics as his photos of the Tour De France London Stage.  He has been accepted by Getty images as a contributor, and has made it into the private collections of Adam Ant and other established artists. Publishing is an important aspect of his work; notably the Zine Publications: ‘PhotoZine’, ‘The Zine’ and ‘JoyZine’; covering the underground Music scene in London.
