Clive Arrowsmith is a celebrated international photographer who is based in London.
After leaving art school in North Wales, where he had studied painting and design, he attended Kingston College of Art. He then began taking photographs, he soon gained commissions from leading fashion magazines. Clive continues to work in this genre in both editorial and advertising photography but is equally known for his music and celebrity images of Sir Paul McCartney, Wings, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Daniel Barenboim, Anna Netrebko, Art Garfunkel, Def Leppard, Prince Charles, Michael Caine and Damien Hirst to name just a few of the celebrated people he has photographed.
“I trained as a painter in art school for five years before discovering photography, which I had previously decried as a minor creative form. But once I began to take pictures, painting faded away. The light from the Italian Renaissance has never left me, though. Sometimes they call me the“Caravaggio of photography”, which never fails to makes me smile.”
