Ian Forsyth


I am a freelance news and documentary photographer based in Saltburn by the Sea on the northeast coast of England.

Over the years I have photographed in many countries as I pursue my passion for documenting people, places and events. Whether on the larger world stage or in my own hometown the creation of a photographic record to document these moments in our collective histories is not only valuable to meet current news interests but it is also the collective responsibility of documentary photographers to ensure these events are recorded with honesty, integrity and compassion for future generations.

I supply my work to Getty Images and London News Pictures. Currently using Leica M9 and Fuji XT1 digital cameras for all my work I maintain strict editorial integrity when editing images.

My work has appeared in numerous publications including The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent,

The Guardian, The Sun, The Daily Mirror, The New York Times, The Irish Times, Bloomberg, New Statesman,

Time, New York Post, BBC and Channel 4 news and many more.
