About Clive

Clive Strutt

Clive Strutt's photographic career started in the late 1950s, when he wielded a heavy 5x4 press camera as a trainee photographer with a provincial English newspaper The East Anglian Daily Times. He started his own freelance news agency in the early 1960s, working within the newspaper and television media and undertaking general photographic commissions. Some of his work is held in The National Portrait Gallery, and he has been published world-wide.

He travels widely adding to his photo library of European and Worldwide destinations and specialist boating and yachting material.

Many well-known personalities became his subjects. His work for composer Benjamin Britten and singer Peter Pears in the early days of the Aldeburgh Festival fuelled his passion for classical music. Jazz was another interest, and his atmospheric action photographs depicted on this web site of Dave Brubeck, Buddy Rich, Count Basie and Oscar Peterson are classics of their kind.
