Changing Ideas was established by David Graham to give to his chosen charitable causes. In 2005 after his 23 year old son became paralysed in an accident, he retired from business and gained an MA in photojournalism. He is 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 has spent several years photographing (www.photograhams.com) in the UK and overseas in India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Ukraine, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Bangladesh working with many 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.
