Simon Pocklington grew up in Norfolk and studied photography at the West Surrey College of Art and Design. He has worked in the photographic industry for nearly 40 years beginning his career as holiday camp photographer and then a hand colour printer in the days when making prints involved darkrooms and smelly, noxious, chemicals. He progressed into wedding photography and portraits before running several studios.
For the last 20 years he has worked as a freelance photographer and his work has been on nearly a hundred book covers, in numerous magazines and continues to sell as stock photography for a multitude of uses. He has also been runner up in the Sunday Telegraph Photographer of the Year competition, winner of the Photography magazine cover girl competition (that’s his photograph – not him personally) and has been featured in many photo anthologies.
He is a qualified adult education tutor and industry trainer and teaches photography, basic computer skills and English as a foreign language. He is now starting a second career as a writer and was runner up in the Let’s Talk short story competition (2015)
