John Harrison is one of Northern Ireland's news photography legends. I was asked to write a profile about him which has just appeared in digitalassetmanagement.org.uk
"When John Harrison founded Harrison Photography in 1994, he didn’t realise that it would lead him to working with the Queen, three US presidents, and receiving an MBE as well as witnessing some of the most horrific moments of the Northern Ireland ‘Troubles’. The only DAM that john used was the expletive – and that was frequent.
His aim was to do PR photography at ‘Press’ speed. He knew that would give him the edge over his competitors and with his experience and reputation, he knew he could deliver. In more than 30 years as a photographer, John Harrison has seen many dramatic changes in his profession and witnessed the best and worst in life on his patch; Northern Ireland."
