About Roger Allen

Roger Allen is one of the dying breed of Fleet Street photographers who has travelled the world taking pictures of royalty, prime ministers, celebrities, war zones, tragedies, bank robberies … the list is endless.

Twice named British Press Photographer of the Year, Roger tells the story of his 40-year career as a super snapper in his autobiography, The Darkroom Boy – a peek into life in the glory days of Press Photography.

He lives in Guildford and while still working for the tabloids, is on a mission to take pictures of endangered animals – most notably orangutans in Borneo.

The Darkroom Boy is available in paperback and Kindle editions from amazon.co.uk.
