A picture editor has retired after 42 years spent capturing island life for a daily newspaper.
Peter Mourant has left the Jersey Evening Post, the paper he joined as a photographer in November 1975 at the age of 22.
He was appointed chief photographer three years later, and went on to photograph the Queen and other Royal Family members, as well as covering events including the Great Storm of 1987.
Jersey native Peter, pictured, left the JEP yesterday.
The 64-year-old told the paper: “It’s been a great career for me because I love taking pictures, I love looking at and choosing pictures and weighing up their various merits, and I love the Island. There are people who I see every day in the office and get on very well with too.
“So it’s a job that, for much of the time, is great fun and we have a lot of laughs.”
He added: “Chris Bright and Andy Sibcy have valued the importance of photography in the paper and I’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with both of them.
“I also want to pay tribute to all the photographers I’ve worked with. They have all been extremely dedicated to their profession and none more so than Jan Hadley, who was the JEP’s photographic assistant for many, many years and kept us all in line.”
