After 20 years as a graphic designer, Clive Booth decided to follow his lifelong ambition of becoming a photographer and filmmaker. The British Canon Ambassador is now in constant demand for his atmospheric fashion, beauty and portrait imagery.
Not only is Clive Booth a celebrated photographer and filmmaker but he's also still a practising graphic designer. "I like to think of myself as a designer with a camera," he says. "In the early 90s, I had shot stills and films for the Royal Geographic Society in the High Arctic, among polar bears and icebergs. I also worked as a cameraman for BBC TV, and in particular [British children's TV show] Blue Peter, but I never went professional; it was simply down to a lack of confidence. I had commissioned and art-directed photographers for years until finally, in 2003, a chance event changed my life."
