He has since studied A Level Art & Photography and has travelled extensively throughout Asia specializing in documentary, social and humanitarian subjects. These have included the opium harvest in northern Laos, landmines and their affects on the Cambodian people and the tsunami in Banda Aceh, Indonesia.

2008, Colin was selected and attended the "Magnum Masterclass" in London's East End, under the supervision of Chris Steele-Perkins & Simon Wheatley.

2012, Nominated for the "Prix Bayeux-Calvados" award.


"Colin first came to my attention when I spotted his brilliant Tsunami series amongst the IPG Terry O'Neill Awards submissions in 2007. He was short-listed and made the journey from Essex to Sussex for the Awards night. I was struck by the thought that this most modest of men throws himself so passionately and fearlessly into some of the world's most ghastly and dangerous disaster events. The world of photography never fails to amaze me."
