Writer, photographer and activist.
Angus Malcolm was born and raised in Ireland. He read modern languages at university in London, where he went on to become involved in LGBT rights and the UK response to HIV.
Angus’s work as a political lobbyist and communications specialist in the HIV field took him throughout Europe and beyond, for clients that included the World Health Organisation and the European Commission as well as many smaller NGOs and non-profit organisations.
Later, Angus moved into media production. He worked as a development producer at the BBC, and then as a freelance writer for television. After being asked for help with video production by several of the charities he had worked for, Angus set up a social enterprise to produce video content for the non-profit sector.
He first picked up a stills camera in earnest in 2008, and started the Warwick Rowers calendar with the University of Warwick Boat Club a year later. His first photography exhibition, at Sydney’s Iain Dawson Gallery in 2011, featured work shot entirely with natural light inside a single Sydney apartment. His images have since been published in books, magazines and blogs around the world.
Since 2014, Angus has devoted himself exclusively to working on the Warwick Rowers project and to setting up Sport Allies.
