This is a unique opportunity to photograph inside the House of Lords with Britain’s highest decorated press photographer, Mike Maloney OBE.
Mike Maloney has won over 100 major photographic awards and in 2005 became the first “Fleet Street” photographer to have been awarded the OBE for services to photo-journalism. Three times voted Press Photographer of the year, he was Chief Photographer for the Mirror Group Newspapers before turning freelance in 2002. He also has numerous Royal tours to his credit, as well as photographing world leaders such as Clinton, Reagan, Gorbachev and Yeltsin, with resulting invitations to dine at both The White House and the Kremlin.
