Bob Maddams

Print and video from a single commission

Bob Maddams is a highly experienced freelance travel journalist and over 25 years has written for numerous national newspapers in the UK, together with specialist travel magazines and websites, and who has also won awards for his work for the Guardian and the Observer.

Bob is also a documentary maker and operating as a self-shooting videographer has made TV programmes for National Geographic TV and Animal Planet. This allows Bob to offer travel editors both print articles and accompanying professional quality videos, if required, from a single commission. Unlike most travel videos, which are no more than PR style promos, Bob presents his own travel videos with a professional journalist’s eye, giving first-hand accounts of destinations and travel experiences while bringing the destinations to life with rich video content.

Travel journalism is about helping readers make more informed choices about where to go on holiday, and the combination of both print and video is the way forward in the digital age and offers the best of both world’s – informed comment and the inspiration to broaden peoples’ horizons.
