Product Description

About the Author

Kent Gavin is a well known and respected British Photojournalist whose iconic images have featured consistently on Newspaper and Magazine covers throughout the World. But it is for his truly iconic Royal images that he is best known. From his early days as an agency photographer he constantly sought perfection in everything he did, and his determination to get the right picture soon came to the notice of the Daily Mirror. Before long it was obvious to them that he had a natural rapport with the Royals, and the foundation on which he based the rest of his career was laid. Through his key position as Chief Photographer with the Daily Mirror Kent had the privilege to become accepted as one of the few trusted and respected Royal Photographers. He has amassed a fascinating chronicle ranging from his Royal experiences to the hard nosed aspect of modern Photo-Journalism. From Ten Downing Street to the White House, and from superlative sporting images to Hollywood Film Sets. His experience now spans an incredible six decades, and in this time Kent has won virtually every Major Prize in the industry. Included in his 131 awards are Press Photographer of the Year three times, Features Photographer of the Year, he achieved Royal Photographer of the Year an unprecedented seven times, and Royal Photographer of the Decade, twice, in the 1980's and 1990's, largely due to an excellent proffessional relationship with Prince Charles, and Diana, Princess of Wales. His iconic images are instantly recognisable the World over, with few of his fellow photojournalists fortunate enough to share in the respect and admiration afforded Kent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iconic Royal Photos 11 Dec 2013
You might not know who Kent Gavin is, but you will certainly know and remember his iconic royal photos. Gavin has been on the spot with his camera to hand at most of the key royal moments of recent history. An almost inside view of the royal family. Book is beautifully produced.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition to my collection 9 Dec 2012
By JLM - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
England's Royal Family has been a passion of mine for over sixty years. Which means it's hard for me to find a book that has photos I haven't seen. Because this was published in England, I took a chance. This book does indeed have photos of the Royal Family I haven't seen. I especially like Mr. Gavin's comments and his background notes of his photos. It's a beautiful book. I gladly add it to my collection and highly recommend it.
