Having dropped plans for a career in Engineering and instead making a start in the rough and tumble of photojournalism, self-taught photographer Simon Ridgway now specialises in the exciting genre of Unit Stills photography in Television and Movies. His work for the BBC and it's successful new Doctor Who series in recent years has been seen all over the world.

Wedi rhoi'r gorau i yrfa ym mheirianneg cychwynnodd Simon Ridgeway ar yrfa ym myd heriol ffotograffiaeth newyddiadurol. Y mae bellach yn arbenigo mewn tynnu lluniau ar setiau teledu a ffilm. Mae ei waith i'r BBC ar gyfres lwyddiannus Dr. Who i'w weld ar draws y byd.
