Julian Antony Cottrell was born on the 3rd of June 1946 at 3.06 am in Edgbaston, Birmingham, England. By the age of nine he knew that his calling was to be a Photographer. It all happened when sent away to a Quaker prep boarding school in Colwall, Worcestershire.

His father was a keen amateur photographer with a Leica. At school in the classroom block there was a long corridor off which there was a room that seemed to have it’s door constantly ajar. There was never any light emitting from it and always a strange smell coming out. Finally curiosity won over and into the beautiful world of Photography stepped Julian. That was it; hooked for ever!
