WELCOME

to the world of Geoff Ford, Photojournalist

As one who is passionate about all things Derbyshire, it has been a real privilege to report on local news, events and sport for local publications over many years.

Derbyshire is a wonderfully diverse county with its beautifully inspiring countryside, unique customs and traditions and the cutting edge technology that continues the legacy of Derbyshire’s history at the heart of Britain’s industrial revolution.

I am excited to be able to share my passion through my website and hope you will enjoy my articles and photographs. Here you will find many examples of my coverage of news & events, feature writing, press releases, motor racing, cycling and other sports coverage, music interviews and concert photography. I was delighted to be the official photographer for the 2017 Jenson Button Trust Triathlon and continue to work with local sporting event organisers.

I am a member of the National Union of Journalists and a UK Press Card holder.
