Simon Green has been a photographer, filmmaker and artist, practicing and teaching for over 20 years. He works with still and moving image, primarily within communities and social groups exploring themes including heritage, mental health, the military and sport. Simon uses his lived experience of these themes to tell stories that many people will relate to.

Simon has been teaching since the beginning of his career, running courses in the theoretical and practical aspects of photography and filmmaking. Most recently working with Durham County Council, running community engagement workshops with Military Veterans, his previous experience includes teaching photography and filmmaking to medical students for Newcastle University / NHS, teaching photography in the community to help with mental health and social exclusion issues, teaching surveillance photography in the Army and running courses and workshops for individuals, groups and businesses.

Simon is interested in working on projects in almost any genre, both fictional and factual. He has a particular interest in anything that raises awareness of mental health issues.
