From hyperlocal paper to Syria’s frontline – a snapshot of a photographer’s career

From hyperlocal paper to Syria's frontline – a snapshot of a photographer's career.

For photographer Sam Tarling, it all began with a prison newsletter.

"I was writing about some of the projects at Erlestoke Prison [where he worked in the admin department] and taking some photos, so I decided to send around a newsletter," explains the 28-year-old from Wiltshire. "It was very amateur, but it was a start."

From these humble beginnings, Tarling has taught himself how to become a professional photographer. Based in Lebanon, he now completes assignments for big name clients such as The Telegraph, Oxfam and Save The Children. "I learnt on the job," he explains.
