Catz Alum Photographs Royal Family

Catz alumnus Jason Bell (1987, PPE) has taken a new official photograph of Prince George with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The photograph was released on 29 March 2014 and is the first official picture of Prince George to be released since his christening, which took place in October 2013 and was also photographed by Jason.

The image was released in advance of the Cambridges upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand, which will be Prince George’s first official overseas tour.

Jason was born in London, and was given his first camera at the age of 5. He decided on a career as a portrait photographer whilst studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at St Catherine's.

His work has since appeared in many of the world’s foremost publications including Vanity Fair and Vogue US & UK, featuring leading celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Johnny Depp and David Beckham. He has shot numerous film posters including Billy Elliot, About A Boy, Love Actually.

Many of Jason’s photographs have been acquired by the National Portrait Gallery for their permanent collection. His work has received much critical acclaim and he has been the recipient of many awards including the Royal Photographic Society’s Terence Donovan Award for an outstanding contribution to photography, the New York Photo Awards’ Best Advertising Image and the Best British Black & White Photographer at the British Picture Editors’ Awards.
