About

Simon Green has been a photographer in a professional capacity 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.

He has been teaching since the beginning of his career, running courses in the theoretical and practical aspects of photography and filmmaking most recently for Durham County Council’s Arts on Prescription program and at degree level for the NHS / Newcastle University.

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.
