Changing Ideas was established by David Graham to support his chosen charitable causes.
In 2005, when his then 23 year old son became paralysed in an accident, he retired from business and gained an MA in photojournalism. He is now based in London and Edinburgh and, prior to becoming a photographer, had a varied business career. A qualified accountant, he has been involved with a variety of businesses including property, consultancy, technology, retail and manufacturing including holding a royal warrant as shoemaker to the Queen.
He spent several years photographing (www.photograhams.com) in the UK and abroad including India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Ukraine, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Bangladesh. He has worked with different charities including Bhopal Medical Appeal, Find your Feet, iDE and Children on the Edge. His work has been used to help those organisations raise awareness and has been extensively published and exhibited.
His travels have given him a unique insight into the problems facing the most deprived and he now combines this experience with his business background to provide help and support.
He is a member of The Philanthropy Workshop.
The trustees are David Graham and Matthew Eatough.
