Photographer Glyn Dewis says his 3945 Portraits project is the realization of everything he's achieved in his career to date. He started the project earlier this year to honor and remember surviving British veterans of the Second World War, by photographing as many of them as possible and providing both them and their families with classic, timeless portraits. 

As Glyn puts it: “I want children to learn what these great people did, and the sacrifices they made, so that it’s never forgotten and – as so many veterans say to me – that it never happens again.”

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life.
