Photographer Bob Aylott F.R.P.S

Bob Aylott started in Fleet Street as a 15-year-old tea boy in 1964. Two years later he was hired as a photographer at the famous Keystone Press Agency and in 1968 named British News Photographer of the Year. He joined the Daily Sketch and Daily Mail and then the internationally-famous National Enquirer where he was based in Hollywood.

He finally returned to London in 1987 and joined the Daily Star. He's covered assignments around the world and won numerous awards including Colour Sequence of the Year and a World Press Award for his prison photographs of killer Charles Manson. He has been exhibited at The Photographers’ Gallery and the ICA in London. In 1972, he spent most of that year recording  the down and outs in Covent Garden. 

His limited-edition hardback book The Six Days That Rocked the World about the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, was a sell-out  and nominated for a book of the year award in 2010. In recent years he has concentrated on marine photography and is regularly commissioned by Yachting Monthly magazine and Classic Boat magazine.

In 2016 he launched the YouTube Channel, My Classic Boat. Now with over 4.7 million viewers is the most watched classic boat channel in the world.
