Neil Warner has been a professional photographer for 30 years, joining The Image Bank in 1980. Working as a Trans Africa tour guide and expedition leader inspired him to combine his passion for travel with photography. Based in Nairobi, Kenya for twenty years, Neil has collaborated with some of the world’s most innovative photographers on a variety of projects, including Peter Beard for Elle Magazine, Mirella Ricciardi and David Coulson, as well as acting as a guide for Frans Lanting on his East African photographic safaris.
In addition to his own photography, Neil formed a photo library "In The Dark", which was the first facility in East Africa to offer some 24 Kenyan photographers a platform to sell their images... He had an exclusive contract working for Ilford in Kenya, running a Cibachrome and print studio from Mc Cann Erickson. Neil’s photographs capture the vibrant and majestic essence of diverse locations and subjects.
