Peter Titmuss has been a press photographer all his working life and has covered subjects from the British royal family to celebrities and disasters, winning awards along the way.
After six decades behind the lens, he has an archive of over 70,000 images. Some of the most recent are presented here.
Peter joined a local north London newspaper aged 17, with the ambition of working on London’s Fleet Street, then the home of Britain’s major daily and evening newspapers. He soon advanced and began working at a leading picture agency.
In 1966 he recalls using a plate camera to photograph comic actor Charlie Chaplin in a wheelchair with his leg in plaster, outside London’s exclusive Savoy hotel on The Strand.
Chaplin had been filming at Pinewood Studios, west of London, and had fallen on rough ground, breaking his ankle.
Many years later, as these pictures vividly demonstrate, Peter still has a passion for the art of photography.
