The 40-year long career of photographer Dave Moss
My whole working life, starting in July 1977, has been dedicated to photography with 28 years spent in newspapers until 2006.
I started work as a press photographer in the South London area on July 4th, 1977. One early assignment was covering Muhammed Ali’s visit, three Wimbledon finals and visiting the many celebrities living in the area before heading back home in the early 80s.
I came home to join the former Grimsby Evening Telegraph - getting to know all the people that made the area tick. I soon became Chief Photographer, Picture Editor and then Imaging Manager to guide them into the digital age in the late 90s. After covering the lives of families and businesses throughout northern Lincolnshire and beyond I escaped declining newspapers in 2006. Thanks to the many contacts made during that time I still pick up the phone to business leaders, families and friends who have trusted me to deliver the best pictures for decades.
I also have the biggest photography studio in the area right next to my home in Church Lane, Holton-le-Clay, Grimsby, Lincolnshire. Great for larger family reunions or any other large groups of people. 100 volunteers have visited for the last 10 years for their health advice calendar. Products or people - anything is possible in the studio.
Having said that most of my work is anytime anywhere. The greater the variety the better. So please don't limit your photo requests to your own limited experiences. Ask for more and enjoy dealing with a total professional. It certainly won't be an ordeal when you see how fast I work with all these years of experience.
