Reflections with Darren Conway
The video from Darren Conway’s Reflections has not been put on the Frontline Club site to protect those colleagues whose names were mentioned that work in extremely dangerous locations. Everyone is aware of the extreme risk that journalists are facing today in places such as Syria and DC wants to do everything possible to prevent them from being put at further risk, something that we at the Frontline Club of course support. This is the only reason why DC’s Frontline Club session is being held back and, as soon as it is deemed safe for the individuals concerned, it will be made available on our site.
Described as “the foremost television cameraman of his generation”, Darren Conway, or DC as he is widely known, has been documenting global events for two decades.
His work covering Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq and more recently Syria has seen him receive the RTS award for best news cameraman six times and earlier this year he was awarded an OBE for services to British broadcast journalism.
DC will be joining Vin Ray in conversation to reflect on a career capturing some of the most poignant pictures of the past 20 years, to talk about how he started out and to impart advise to anyone looking to embark on a career as a cameraman.
Reflections is described by host Vin Ray as a cross between Desert Island Discs and This Is Your Life, bringing journalists to the stage to reflect on the stories that have influenced them most throughout their career and the journalists whose work has inspired them.
