About Russell Watkins: Developing Pictures


Originally from Cardiff, south Wales, I'm now based in Brighton. I've been producing photography and multimedia for editorial, commercial and public sector clients since 1998. I'm currently picture editor and multimedia producer for the Department for International Development, where I curate and create photography, film and multimedia content about international development issues.

I'm fascinated by the internet and the way in which it has transformed the dissemination of photography beyond the traditional means of the printed page and the gallery wall, and I'm passionate about using photography, technology and multimedia to tell stories.

I completed a BA in photography at Nottingham Trent University in 1996, and an MA in Photographic Studies at the University of Westminster in 2007.

I blog about photography and international development over at Developing Pictures, and tweet as @russellphoto.

I'm a member of the Association of Photographers
