Documenting the Covid-19 Pandemic


Rick Findler is an award winning photojournalist based in South West London with a very keen interest in the world of news and press photography. Rick has been working in the industry for seven years predominantly in the London area, but a keen interest in conflict photography has seen him travel to recent hot spots including Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Burundi. With inspiration from photographers such as James Nachtwey and Sean Smith, Rick hopes to climb to their level of success while following his own personal drive and reason.

Rick's work has regulary featured in leading publications such as The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Wall Street Journal and The Independent to name a few. In 2013 his work covering the Syrian civil war was widely recognised by the Picture Editors Guild Awards, Professional Photographer of the Year Awards and was exhibited in the National Theatre as part of the Press Photographers Year 2013 exhibition.

His work from the Burundi unrest was also voted "Best in Show" at Photomonth International Photography Festival.

Most recently his images documenting The World's Strongest Man were exhibited in Somerset House for The Sony World Photography Awards 2018.

Rick is also a keynote speaker - speaking about his pictures and stories at businesses, colleges and schools throughout the United Kingdom.
